The Affordable Alternative


After several years supplying the SuperTyro™ IP as part of the hugely successful TruHelix™ Flight Forming System that has revolutionised the flight forming industry around the world AST have expanded their range in response to requests from the market for a budget priced machine that would press the majority of flight sizes in common use in the market at a lower capital expenditure.

AST are releasing the Tyro™ IP Budget model this month, built to the same exacting standards for long term durability it features a slightly different machine design and a two-piece modular construction for ease of production which also reduces the costs of manufacture.

Hydraulics will still use the tried and proven system that is capable of pressing up to 200-bar (2,900 psi) and the same electrical system as used previously on the well-proven SuperTyro™ IP.

The new 10” Touch Screen will be employed on both models of intelligent press.

The Tyro™ IP will comply with all known safety standards and construction codes currently in use around the world.
