Dished heads production made easy with Faccin’s line

PPM 307x210The dished heads production lines from Faccin, one of the largest production companies in the world for bending systems and rolling machines, include technologically advanced presses, flanging machines and manipulators, providing maximum reliability and achieving tolerances and lamination reduction

There are hundreds of manufacturers of tanks, silos, pressure vessels, truck tanks and metal rolls components all over the world. Most of these companies need to produce or source Dished Ends of various types, sizes and specifications to complete their products.

However, there are only a few Dished Ends manufacturers that can supply this kind of product, a golden reason Dished End Production has become a very profitable business and a craft that companies are carrying on and conserving generation after generation.

Faccin, one of the largest production companies in the world for bending systems and rolling machines, with ISO 9001: 2008 and ISO 18001: 2017 certifications, supplies dished heads production lines that include technologically advanced presses, flanging machines and manipulators, designed to offer maximum reliability and to meet the needs of manufacturers of dished heads in terms of achieving tolerances and lamination reduction. 

The PPM is a series of sturdy, reliable and efficient hydraulic presses. With an in-house design, fabricating, machining and assembly, Faccin presses are suited for dished head crowning, featuring an exclusive design with threaded rods and available in various sizes, to choose the exact size the customer needs to calculate the dimension of the largest development of the metal plate to be processed, then the customer may decide the distance between the uprights.

All the PPM series include an exclusive HPT system utilising two solid forged tie rods (permanently preloaded) to keep the frame connected to the top rail. Thanks to the HPT system, which is able to minimise frame deformation, dished heads presses of the PPM range assure forming precision and high reliability.

Faccin also provides affordable solutions to manufacture dished heads and tanks within this model. In these lines for dished heads, the frame is connected to the upper beam with keys machined on the structure or just welded to the structure in single monolithic pieces.

There are also effective handling systems available upon request designed to allow accurate positioning of the plate under the dies of the hydraulic presses. These automatic manipulators in the MA range assure high quality and offer several advantages in production optimisation, saving time and processing several plates at once.

In addition, Faccin offers the widest range of dished head flanging machines on the international market, machines able to improve production quality while reducing costs.

The widely known BF series are built with C-shaped electro-welded structures and machined with stretching treatments, which are numerical control hydraulic and automatic flanging machines. Machinery movements are fully hydraulic and the whole system is protected against overload by safety valves. The forming and flanging rolls of the flanging machines are made of forged alloy steel. This assures a longer life cycle of tools.

In the standard configuration, Faccin’s BF flanging machines are equipped with automatic working cycle to assure the utmost ease of use during the flanging process even by inexperienced operators. The BF ranges of flanging machines are available for dished heads with or without a central hole and for thickness up to 50 mm.

For specific customer projects, Faccin’s professional engineering and R&D department designs and produces customised solutions that effectively suit the requirements of the most exigent producers.

Faccin is one of the world leaders, with more than 50 years’ experience, in the design, manufacturing and commercialization of plate bending rolls, profile bending machines, dished head machinery and special machines including ship frame bending rolls and presses and plate straightening machines.
