Successor to the proven and powerful HK, the new vertical PFC series has two tool turrets and is ideal for splitting, folding, and rolling. Pulleys machined from castings or from solid metal are relatively costly in terms of , manufacturing time and material. Profiling represents a cost-effective alternative for the production of pulleys. Due to two independent tool turrets with four rollers each, the PFC design offers an optimum in flexibility. Both working units allow single as well as simultaneous forming. Even if one roller is still in the profiling process, a second one can be placed into pre-position. For the first time, the new PFC machines combine radial and tangential forming, ensuring substantial reduction in cycle time.
