Schwarze-Robitec offers the CNC 220 HD MW tube and profile cold bending machine. It is designed for bending large quantities of many different tube types, such as for shipbuilding, chemical industry, or power plant construction applications.
Using multiple bending tools, the machine processes tube bends in different nominal diameters and materials in very quick succession with no machine conversion. It handles tubes with a maximum diameter of 8.625 by 0.500 in. in lengths up to 19.7 ft., processing thin- and thick-walled steel, copper-nickel-iron alloy, and stainless steel on one tool.
The integrated Spring Matic measuring system determines the rebound of the tube after initial bending. It then is immediately rebent, executing the bend to 0.5-degree accuracy.
