NOTE: TCM-SS100 ball pull-out system required an oval pilot hole. Ball Pull-Out system does NOT provide a pilot hole. The optional Extruder System can provide the necessary pilot hole. Otherwise pilot hole will have be made by hand, milling machine, drill, stamp, press, or other method.
Tube with pilot-hole is slid over mandrel with ball-holder and ball. Tube is then clamped in feed-clamp and positioned so that center of pilot hole is right above center of pull-out ball. (Optional NC feeding for easy positioning).

Hydraulic clamp dies firmly clamps work. Head moves down and connecting screw is inserted into pull-out ball.Connecting screw automatically spins, connecting with ball.

Hydraulic cylinder pulls out ball thereby forming collar.

Sizing punch is lowered down into the collar to ensure perfect roundness and exact diameter.

Punch is automatically retracted and returned. Ball is lowered back into ball holder and connecting screw spins to disconnect from ball.

Connecting screw is retracted. Clamps are released and tube is either moved to next collaring position (NC positioning optional) or removed from machine.
