The tube and profile cold bending machine CNC 220 HD MW (pictured) is able to process tubes with maximum diameter of 219.1 by 12.7 millimetres – at a tube length of up to 6 metres.
Tube production for ships, the chemical industry or power plant construction is associated with huge quantities. Central production processes such as bending the many different tube types need to be highly efficient.
Frequent and long conversion work on the bending machine is a criterion that has the potential to bring production to a standstill. The CNC 220 HD MW tube and profile cold bending machine tackles this task highly efficiently with one multiple bending tool. At the same time, the plant’s measuring system ensures accuracy.
If a user has to convert the machine every time a new tube bend is to be produced, the total production would be much too time-consuming and drawn out. The set-up times therefore need to be kept to a minimum with the aid of multiple bending tools.
The CNC 220 HD MW is a tube and profile cold bending machine with a total weight of 32 tonnes.
It is able to process tubes with maximum diameter of 219.1 by 12.7 millimetres Ð at a tube length of up to 6 metres.
Despite its size, the plant is extremely flexible to handle: with the multiple bending tool, up to 70 percent of the set-up times of conventional plants on the market can be saved.
It is therefore possible to process tubes in different materials such as steel, copper-nickel-iron alloys and stainless steel on one tool and with no conversion work. At the same time, thin-walled and thick-walled tubes with different diameters can be bent. With this clever tool concept, it is possible to handle the broadest range of material standards and tube shapes.
The set-up times between the various versions are minimal. There is no need for conversion of the plant and a variety of production data is saved in the system.
At the same time, outstanding precision is ensured. The integrated Spring Matic measuring system determines the rebound of the tube after initial bending. It is then immediately ‘re-bent’. The result is convincing: the bend is executed to accuracy of half a degree.
The fact that this plant concept guarantees great economic advantages for users is obvious. The short set-up times ensure that downtimes remain low and machine use high.
