After the flange, baffles and tubes are manually loaded into the machine, the following operations take place in this customized machine:
- Sense that the tube is loaded
- Tube endforming
- Calibrate one side of the tube
- Calibrate the other side of the tube
- Feed the hood and bushes to the first work station.
- Nailing of bushes and hood sub-unit
