Burch Tank, a US-based bulk tank trailer and equipment manufacturer, has installed a new head forming machine to help control its quality improvement processes while increasing efficiency.

Burch Tanks head forming machine is capable of forming heads in either round or elliptical shapes.

The machine is capable of dished and flanging using stainless steel, aluminium, and carbon steel, with a 2’ to 12’ diameter and a maximum thickness of 5/8”.

The machine is used as an integral part of the manufacturing process that requires precise forming of tank trailer heads.

“Due to the fact that each tank is custom made, this piece of machinery is invaluable. We can truly customise all tanks to the exact size the customer wants and needs,” said Jeff Harrison, CEO of Burch Tank and Truck, Inc.

“By adding this machine to our assists, we can also really control the total quality of the machine. In addition to our press brake, plate roll machine and new laser cutter this allows us to produce precise parts for all of our equipment helping to make the highest quality tanks possible,” Harrison concluded.
