Bending machine design helps minimize setup time
Schwarze-Robitec has developed the CNC 60 E TB MR bending machine. Equipped with multitools, it allows production of different radii, as well as bend-in-bend systems. The machine is suitable for the manufacture of exhaust pipes with a bending radius of 1xD without straight intermediate lengths between two bends.
The multibend tools help minimize setup times. A separating system is integrated in the bending system. Several individual tubes are coupled to one bending program and are separated after bending. As clamping and support lengths are not required, there is considerably less material loss and scrap, the company reports.
