VX LLC is known worldwide for acquiring and selling used edge trimming and forming machines. For over 50 years, they’ve served the manufacturing industry with various quality used edge trimmers and other metal working machinery.
Edge cutting, trimming, and forming machines are often used to cut, bend or round sharp edges of a metal cup-shaped part such as fire extinguishers, cookware, and other metal containers. They are designed to cut the edges of round pieces in production and bend them inside in one manufacturing cycle. This makes production time shorter and more economical.
Edge curling is a specialized metalworking procedure that transforms the edges of a round or flat metal sheet into hollow rings. This procedure is used to secure two parts together to safely handle air or watertight seals. Sheet metal curling tools bend the outside or inside edges of the round metal part’s rims after they have been trimmed. As a result, it gives the manufactured part a better finish and lowers the risk of usage-
related rim cutting.
Curling takes only a few seconds on top of the edge-cutting operation. All the operator needs to do is replace the edge cutting tool with the edge curling tool to apply the curling process. This can be applied to such manufacturing metals as stainless steel, black steel, aluminum, copper, tin, and zinc.
Edge curling (or closing) is commonly used in bakeware production facilities. The rims of the stainless steel, aluminum, or alloy bake molds are first trimmed by an edge trimming machine and then curled inside or outside, depending on the product requirements.
Sheet metals that go through the metal trimming and curling process are used to produce such consumer items as teapots, coffee pots, kettles, milk canisters, water heater bodies, cake molds, and other bakery related products.
