Automation is renewed and slashes production costs

May 5, 2021 6:00:11 PM

It has been years since there has been such an upheaval in the world of automation and not only in the manufacturing field. We can talk about a real "Renaissance" or as it has been called by theorists a new industrial revolution, (the fourth to be precise).

New technologies, process data collection and analysis, increasingly sophisticated simulations, digital twins, widespread connectivity at various levels (WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet and soon 5G), all accompanied by the ever-present and promising growth of artificial intelligence.

Right or left-hand or right and left-hand tube bender in automatic process

Mar 17, 2021 7:03:19 PM

The bending direction of a tube bending machine is determined by looking down on the bend die. If it rotates clockwise when bending it is “right-hand”. Conversely, if it rotates counter clockwise, it is “left-hand”.
