Shape Metals English Wheels
Shaping a metal in a required shape involves different equipment and machines that perform certain processes on the material. One such machine, which is used to shape different metals into compound curves is English Wheel, also referred to as wheeling machine. These machines are most commonly used in the aircraft industries, and in applications like a custom motorcycle, hot rod, and metal art and restoration. Woodward Fab has a vast experience, and hence expertise in manufacturing high-quality and extremely efficient wheeling machines.
An English Wheel features a lower anvil wheel, and an upper flat wheel. You can achieve different radii by changing the lower anvil wheel of the machine. These machines are used to shape metals, such as aluminum, and steel. These materials are pushed back and forth between the lower and upper wheels of the wheeling machine.
A small strip of material is repeatedly passed between the two wheels, and thus makes contact with them. This strip is stretched to make the wheeling machine work on it. The material assumes a curved shape due to this stretching, and after passing it through the two wheels repeatedly. Different effects and shapes can be achieved by rolling in different angles and directions.
Beneficial Features of English Wheels
Here are some striking beneficial features of the wheeling machines, which make them highly preferred in most applications:
- Micro-adjustable anvil adjustment wheel
- Quick cam handle release
- Quick wheel change without tools
