English wheel, throat 1040 mm. Simple solutions of Heliotech, installation of rolls, so called
quick lowering mechanism and other - became an example to follow by others.

Main thick-walled profiles. This is not a standard wall thickness that would be insufficiently stiff.

The key to good wheeling machine (operates correctly or not) are rolls and sufficiently rigid
body. Tested model. Exported to many European countries since 1993. Body is carefully
finished. Shot blasted and powder painted. We manufacture the best rolls around the world.
Expensive tool steel. Hardened and tempered rolls, anvils to hardness 60-62 HRC. Polished.

Features as above. Diameter O 200 mm (~8"), width 75 mm. Low weight (below 9 kg) in case of the dimensions O 200
x 75 mm, (low inertia) should be recognized. Of course, abrasion resistant tool steel (no spring steel or general use
middle hardness steel for quenching and tempering: 42CrMo4 (EN),1.7225 (W. Nr.), 4140 (AISI), etc. !!!).  However,
pins (diameter fi 20 mm( are heat ttreated to 29  30 HRC (assembly and disassembly of bearings do not cause
scoring). Everyone knows that HELIOTECH manufactures the best rolls for English wheel around the world -
- material - expensive tool steel
- hardness - through hardened, 62 HRC Rockwell Hardness.  Distortion free - turned after hardening.
- ration, size to weight - low inertia, quicker operation without slide.
- precision, runout lower than 0.02 mm (~0.0008") (on dial indicator)

You will not find better rolls on this side of the Ocean and the other - regardless of funds. It is a well known fact that rolls
Made by HELIOTECH are the best!

Wessel Coachbuilding / Restoration
This short video explains how the adapter works for instant exchange tools as well as showing mounting arrangements. The jaws can be mounted on a variety of Pullmax, Trumph nibblers and many other presses. The recommended ideal parallelism deviation is less than 0.02 mm.
This will increase the quality of the machining (smoothness) as well as increase the service life of the jaws.

UNIVERSAL ADAPTER SET for jaws  o 40 mm  -  MINI SET

A set of ball latch adapters for quick jaw change.
Application on Heliotech machines as well as Pullmax nibblers, Trumph, Eckold and others. In the set you buy - it is what you see in the picture beside. The kit does not include a feeler gauge visible in the photo gallery or jaws. The price includes what can be seen in the first photo.

September 2022,   novelty on the market

HELIOTECH shrinker stretcher, new model SR80 with coarse and fine adjustment.
A market innovation among compact sheet metal forming tools.

This tool has two independent coarse and precise shrinker adjustments  depending
on thickness of the sheet metal used
and the desired deformation speed of the sheet metal.
Fine setting Infinitely adjustable, between gentle or more aggressive shrinking
or stretching is possible.
Due to the integrated stop inside the body, each deformation step is - preset - identical. Repeatability is maintained whether the operator squeezes the leverless or harder
with more or less attention.
Registration of design protection at the patent office pending.  
                                                                             Original  Design, september 2022  Wieslaw Rabiasz

A handy "tractor" for heavy daily workshop work
(not a toy for occasional use).
It is very easy to work with effortlessly thanks to a other mechanism: eccentric / lever.

Capacity, metric steel:

                         0,5 - 1,0 mm  (1,2 mm close to the edge)
                         0,8 mm,   very easy !

Capacity, US standard sheet metal gauge No:

    25 - 19  ( 18 close to the edge)
                                                                                                    21   very easy !
Insertion depth, throat: 80mm                                                            Weight: ~ 11 kg

You buy in a set what you see in the first photo
- 1 body with hand lever
- shrinking box
- stretching box
- a package of adjustment shims (rough)

This new design has been carefully checked. The tests, optimization of prototypes,
production technology and small information production batch (after the first prototype produced) - took about 1 year.
Heliotech has been producing various shrinkers, stretchers for 30 years.
