Uniflex Hydraulik

The HM 665 crimping machine (photo) offers an opening stroke of more than 180 mm and an opening diameter of 580 mm (without dies). Using this company’s unique slide-bearing technology, the HM 665 can be used to crimp industrial hoses up to 12-in. in diameter with ANSI flanges and pipe fittings up to 16-in. without having to remove the dies. The fixed die and the 250-mm-long bottom die make workpiece positioning easy. Along with hydraulic hoses, the machine can be used to join reinforcing steel, steel cables, ropes and insulators with forces up to 6,000 kN. The HM 665 is controlled through the Control C.2 control unit available from this company. — Uniflex Hydraulik GmbH, Karben, Germany
