Automatic Flag Pole Machine

Leifeld AFPM Series

The high performance flow forming machine AFPM 280 H 9600 is stable, flexible, efficient and user-friendly. Its solid construction enables a production of rotational symmetry hollow bodies with varying wall thicknesses and diameters, at high forming velocities.

The main machine components and assemblies are mounted on a rigid and warp resistant, welded machine bed. Due to the progressive and forward-looking technology of the machine, a highly material-effective and cost-saving production of aluminium street- and flag poles is ensured. In addition, the AFPM 280 H 9600 will convince by short retooling times, low tooling costs, and easy maintenance works.

Processed are extruded aluminum poles. Concerning the aluminum poles, chamber molded tubes are used, which are characterized by homogeneous chamber seams and uniform wall thickness.
