Internal flared ends are often used to provide an enlarged entry point for other components. Maintaining the original tube OD while forming the internal taper is a critical design feature which requires a precise, repeatable process. A wide variation in tube sizes, tip configurations and polymer choices add extra layers of complexity to the tip forming process. Vante and PlasticWeld diverse equipment options provide you with unmatched versatility to meet your specific production challenges.
Tube OD Range: Tube sizes ranging from 2Fr up to 45Fr
Geometry Configurations: narrow angle openings with straight conical, curved funnel, straight ID enlargements
Flare Lengths: ranging from 1mm and longer depending on polymer, tube OD/ID and desired opening size
Materials: All thermoplastic polymers can be formed: including LDPE, HDPE, PE copolymers, PP, PU & PU blends, PEBAX, FEP, and many others.
Standard Machine Configurations: 1-up, 2-up and 4-up systems depending on project details.
