The machine is composed of two moving heads which move by means of guides and skids positioned on a base. The movement of the heads is followed by motors and ball screws. On the heads there are the wheels for forming the edge of the basket for washing machines. At the center of the automation is the self-centering spindle used for locking the basket. The expanding spindle is moved by mechanical and pneumatic systems, it is possible to replace the six movable plates, allowing to better adapt the internal surface of the basket with that of the spindle. On the back of the machine there is a slide for the evacuation of the finished basket.
The basket is loaded manually by the operator: the basket is placed on the positioning system located in the center of the machine, which facilitates the insertion of the self-centering spindle. The operator closes the doors and starts the work cycle, the left head, with integrated self-centering spindle, moves by introducing the spindle into the basket. The locking system is activated and the basket is anchored. Subsequently the head on the right moves closer to the basket, at this point the rim riveting wheels close on the external profile of the basket, the rotation of the spindle allows the shaping of the external sheet of the basket creating a rounded profile.

Once the operation is complete, the riveting wheels reopen, the spindle releases its grip on the basket and the heads return to their initial position, at this point the basket rolls along the rear discharge chute.
The machine is completely programmable via the operator keyboard, it is possible to set the size of the border and if it is to follow it on one side only or both, it is possible to create programs dedicated to the various models and create a database.
Optionals can be applied to the machine, such as, for example, an anthropomorphic robot can be applied to increase productivity, eliminating the presence of the operator.
