Schmallenberg, Deutschland (PressExposure) January 24, 2012 -- In short and compact tube geometries, the problem is that with standard methods the material loss is extremely high, if must be cutted after bending the tubes. "Not acceptable", determine the developers of the transfluid Maschinenbau GmbH, Schmallenberg. With a special combination of bending and cutting process, which was developed according to the individual customer's request, provides the german company now an effective solution. All axes and movements of the bending machine are electrically driven. The machine is equipped with three bending level. On another level, the tube can be cutted precisely and almost without damage via knives. Without further cutting, the immediate processing of the work piece is ensured. The new development is able to bend and manufacture tubes up to 140 x 2 D. Because the loading of short pre-cutted parts is not necessary and non-productive times are reduced, an exceptional economy will be achieved. Per geometry it leads to an average saving of material up to two times the tube diameter. Very interesting is this particular kind of machine design for example for the manufacture of exhaust systems.
Economic advance is given by the up to six meters usuable length of the machine. After loading, the desired geometry and the first bend of the following geometry could be finished. Therefor transfluid has equipped their bending technology with ten servo-electrical driven axes. In the following process the knife of the cutting unit ensure a precise cut and separate the already bended geometry from the untreated piece of pipe. "Bending radii and clamping lenght are very demanding here. The transfluid-solution allows their implementation, because the machine is also equipped with a boosting function "managing director Gerd Nöker points out.
During TUBE (26-30.03.2012, Düsseldorf, hall 05 / stand 5G34) visitors can experience more forward-looking solutions for tube processing from transfluid.
