Jammes Industrie has developed the Type T-180 platebending machine capable of bending special sheet metal to produce tubes with small diameters over long lengths at up to 200 PPH.
The machine is suitable for bending stainless steel and aluminum chimney pipes (3 in. in diameter, 0.20 in. thick, and 48 in. long; titanium aerospace pipes; and titanium missile bodies in a single rotation. Operation does not require special training, the company says. Setup for changing part diameters takes 15 seconds and requires no tooling.
