Faccin designs, manufactures and supplies machines for dished ends able to assure high productivity and maximum reliability in forming sheet steel, stainless steel and aluminium to produce tanks for tanker trucks. PPH series water presses by Faccin are widely used in the sector because they enable hydroforming of polycentric, oval and circular dished heads with thickness up to 8 mm. This process is obtained by pressing the plate against a die shaped according to the dished head shape to be obtained. A progressive increase in water pressure allows to achieve, within minutes, the required yielding of the material to obtain dished head crowning.
Faccin’s PPH water presses feature a set of hydraulic cylinders that keep the plate pressing system anchored to the bottom, developing a total force of over 2500 tonnes. In addition, hydroforming presses have a special sealing system that assures seal against liquid seepage and leakage. The machinery of the PPH series designed and assembled by Faccin are CNC water presses able to assure complete automation of the production process. Furthermore, the hydroforming presses are equipped with optional loading/unloading systems for significant reduction of production times.
