Guidance above is subject to the conditions and limitations shown below:

  • Indicated machine ranges are based on 250Mpa Yield Strength Plate, and the Range of sizes will be affected by the varying Grades of material used.
  • Maximum Pitch is a function of the diameter to fit the shaft, and is limited accordingly
  • Extended diameter and pitch range may be achieved if the flange width is less than 25% of the diameter
  • The Pitch may be limited by the material thickness, which may be too thin to hold the correct form
  • Forming Abrasion Resistant material may require the use of special high-wear forming plates
  • Forming of Abrasion Resistant material may be limited by the forming force of the machine, limitations in pitch due to the material's increased spring back, and limitations of the material to stretch during forming without cracking
  • The maximum achievable plate thickness is subject to both the pitch to shaft diameter ratio, and the maximum flange width cross-sectional area for the respective machine being used
