Hydrapower International, Inc., with world headquarters on Marco Island FL., a world leader in Metal Forming machinery and Pole Manufacturing technology has completed development of 2 machines which speed up production of lighting, utility and traffic signal poles. The Flow Former can also make flag poles and decorative poles with an extensive range of profiles.
The Burnisher, built on the same base, processes poles over a mandrel and the rollers raise the poles structural strength to meet ASTM specs. Various mandrels enable the Burnishing of conical and polygon poles.
The machines are controlled by Siemens 840D multi axis CNC with functions similar to machining centers but our machines do not cut metal they move it by plastic flow to create the required shapes.
