Shorter setup times thanks to multi-stack bending tools
Refitting machines is a drain on resources in any industry, resulting in downtime and costing both time and nerves. And, in the case of the large machines used in shipbuilding and plant construction, it is enormously expensive. In those applications, large volumes of various pipe types with different nominal diameters are processed. By using multi-stack bending tools for different nominal diameters, it is possible to reduce setup times because most of the tools needed remain in place. This makes it possible to bend pipes of various diameters and wall thicknesses without any major time-consuming tool changes. The pressure dies, clamp jaws and bend former used to manufacture the pipes for ships are very large and heavy. A crane is needed to change them which costs time and effort and may entail quality risks because the tool has to be adjusted. Our machines reduce setup times by a massive 70 percent and result in a consistent, high-quality bending result, short downtimes and high machine utilization.
A robust basic machine with many options
You can benefit from all the advantages of our fully automatic CNC HEAVY DUTY range which permits the manufacture of the most complex geometries in a single operation. This allows the rapid production of three-dimensional tube systems without a single weld. Thanks to the very powerful basic machine, which is also robust due to its high level of rigidity, you can achieve consistently good results for the most exacting requirements and at high bending forces.
