Automatic, Semi-Automatic
VERSAtoolTM is a Mechanically Assisted/ Manual Tube End
Flare and Flange Machine that provides ultimate versitility in a
tube preperation tool.
VERSAtoolTM is a "three-in-one" operation center. It flares 1/4" to 1-1/2" (6mm to 38mm) tubing AND flanges 1/4" to 1"
(6mm to 25mm) tubing. The forming operation automatically burnishes the tube sealing surface. The machine is tested and
approved for use with stainless steel, carbon steel, and copper tubing.
Ideal for Short-Runs and Large Size Variation
Change-over accomplished in 60 seconds or less; production cycle times between 5-15 seconds.
Optimal for Cellular Manufacturing
Right-sized tool fits directly into the flow of products to eliminate unnecessary transport and waiting times on the shop floor.
Versatile and Multifunctional
All in one machine flares and flanges steel, stainless and copper tubing. Tube-end finishing operation results in a burnished surface.
Error-Proofed Design
Incorporates many intuitive, mechanical features aimed at 100% first-time quality.
VERSAtoolTM concept means low operating cost, high consistency, and high operator satisfaction.

VERSAtoolTM flares and flanges various sizes of tubing in 5 to 15 second cycles. Change-overs are accomplished in 60 seconds or less. A separate Nosetool and SINGLE SET of Dies will allow VERSAtoolTM to form a 37° or 45° Flare, or a 90° Flange.
For flaring and flanging, the selected Die Set is put in the respective orientation and inserted in the Carrier. The appropriate Flare or Flange Nosetool is inserted in the Spindle.
VERSAtoolTM uses clean, quiet, highly-reliable 115VAC. The geared hand wheel feeds the
tubing into the orbiting Nosetool. The resulting metal forming operation produces a consistent, burnished tube end for reliable sealing.
The process of orienting the same Die Set for either flaring or flanging is mistake-proofed because the dies have built in orientation pins, which make mis-matching impossible.
Go/No-Go Gauge
Between each production cycle, an on-hand Gauge provides quick and simple means of doing
100% reliable proof-check.
Feedstop Gauge
Hand-held Feedstop allows tubing to be fed to the exact length off the face of the split dies
and, in most cases, eliminates tool changes between wall thicknesses.
