The tube end closer (SM) performs the closing of the manifolds ends in copper, with max. external diameter of 108 mm, by plastic deformation. To this purpose, it uses special tools placed as a revolution at the ends of the manifold itself, which deform it progressively and permanently. The closing shape may be flat or curve shaped. The curve shape is used to increase the manifold operating pressure with the same thickness; in this way it is possible to meet more easily the requirements of PED/CE standards. In order to switch from the manufacture of a shape to another one, just a parameter needs to be modified in the control panel. The manifold during the processing remains blocked, then it may have any diameter or length. The machine set-up time is very short.
