The Aerospace Industry
TFM’s cold forming machines have benefited from a sterling reputation in the aerospace industry for a long time. Our clients use both swager and vaill end formers:
- Swagers (Rotary and DC): This technoglogy is particularly well-suited for MS/AN terminals fitting assemblies and thermocouples.
- Vaills: Used to manufacture a variety of conduits with different section reductions and expansions
Realisation Thermocouples Swaging
Given the high demand for thermocouples in aerospace, TFM developped a standard modular system able to swage them. The system is adaptable to different part lengths and includes a semi-automatic feeder & extractor to enable full-part swaging.
The video presents the system and features our « Roll feeder ». This special feeder was built to swage temperature sensing elements for airplanes. A short blank thermocouple is swaged multiples times to increase its length at each step.
If required, the machine can also be made fully-automatic to support even greater production volumes.
Realisation Cables Assembly
The following picture shows the resulting products of a standard Torrington model 322DC that was manufactured for swaging standard MS/AN fittings on cables for a major aircraft company.
