Fully Electric Machine Produces Complex Tube Geometries to 8-in. Dia.

Schwarze-Robitec’s large, fully electric multiple-radius tube-and-pipe-bending machine featuring transport boost technology, the CNC 220 E TB MR, can produce complex tube geometries with diameters to 8 in. The company will demonstrate this technology at FABTECH, November 6-8 in Atlanta, at booth C10623.

By delivering consistent precision during the tube-and-pipe-bending process, the new machine enables users to achieve high productivity in their production processes regardless of batch size, according to company officials. The multi-stack tube and pipe bending machine can bend a broad spectrum of tube and profile dimensions, and can process tube and pipe lengths to 13 ft., with a vertical, height-adjustable pressure die moving to the required bending level in each individual case. This enables users to better gauge the requisite bending forces and consistently apply optimal contact pressure to tubes and pipes.

The machine’s NxG control system optimizes time, tool path and speed on all CNC axes, enabling users to significantly enhance productivity. Depending on the tube or pipe system to be bent, production times reportedly can be cut by as much as 35 percent. With bend-former retraction, the machine’s bend former and swivel arm can be operated separately, enabling a diverse range of tube geometries to be more easily adjusted and positioned during the bending process.
