Manual Twin Spindle - Uptime, easy of maintenance & options

Similar to our Hydraulic models (without the self-contained hydraulic system), AGC’s manual twin spindle line of frames are ideal for those who want to improve production uptime, but do not require automated open and close mechanism. Typically, manual twin spindle frames open / close in half the time compared to similar sized tie-bar frames. In addition, twin spindle frames close evenly and with centered top / bottom spindles, it removes side to side variability. This even closure extends the life of the unit for improved total cost of ownership.

As a valued AGC customer, you have options. We have automatic closure tools for our manual twin spindle frames. It’s a dual motored, power closure tool that saves you from wrenching the unit open and closed. If you’re interested in this closure tool, contact us.

If you have an existing manual twin spindle from another OEM and are looking to upgrade to the hydraulic benefits, we have an option for you as well. We can retrofit other OEM units with an AGC hydraulic end support, that would turn them from manual to hydraulic closure without replacing the entire frame. However, if your existing frame is ready for replacement, we’d be thrilled to design a custom hydraulic unit that will meet your processing needs and allow additional room to grow!
