The EWM-89 English wheel is designed to allow craftsmen to form smooth curves from flat sheets of metal. They are mainly used in car, motorcycle, aviation and racing car construction or restoration where sheet metal panels need to have compound curves formed.
The operator passes the sheet metal between the anvil wheel and the rolling wheel. This process stretches the material and causes it to become thinner. As the material stretches, it forms a convex surface over the anvil wheel.
This heavy duty steel fabricated machine has a large 914mm throat which allows a capacity of 1.6mm for mild steel and 2mm for Copper and Aluminium.
Supplied with a 152mm diameter x 57mm wide top rolling wheel and 60, 83, 127, 216, 305mm radius dies and 1 x flat die.
The machine weighs 101kg and has provisions to be easily secured to floor.
