Wilson Wheel® Rolling Flare

The Rolling Flare allows fabricators to create large diameter flares and other shapes with one tool anywhere on the sheet. Because the Rolling Flare tool glides around the perimeter of the shape to create the flare, it can form flares vastly larger than station size – up to as large as the sheet itself.
 
Flared shapes are created super-fast and smooth, straight or curved, at any programmable location. The horizontal rolling motion of the tool leaves no burrs or nibble marks so it often forms without a secondary operation needed for finalizing the part, even on cosmetic parts with a very low threshold for burrs.

The Wilson Wheel® family of products offers you flexible, high speed production of embosses, slits, ribs and offsets on a wide range of materials with virtually no burrs or nibble marks. Wilson Wheel tools are a revolutionary innovation in the world of punch press tooling. Rather than punching the sheet in a vertical motion, Wilson Wheel tools horizontally roll along the sheet, dramatically speeding production and creating forms never thought possible in the punch press.
 
Because of the horizontal movement of the tools, nibble marks, burrs and the usual troublesome byproducts of punching sheet metal are virtually eliminated.
 
Explore the full Wilson Wheel family of products to expand your horizons on the full capabilities of your machine. Wilson Wheel tools are available for thick turret, thin turret, Murata Wiedemann and TRUMPF-style machines.
