8 reasons for choosing an all-electric tube bending machine

Jan 18, 2022 2:04:00 PM

Automatic tube bending machines are widely used in a variety of areas of application such as automotive, motorcycle, aerospace, furniture, industrial vehicles, and residential and industrial heating and cooling systems.

Unlike the traditional manual tube bending machines, mainly used as work tools on construction sites, automatic tube bending machines are real industrial systems for mass production of components made from tube and can be electric hydraulic, hereinafter simply called hydraulic tube bending machines, or all-electric.
This article describes the main advantages offered by the all-electric tube bending machines.

A compact bending head to produce new geometries

Jul 2, 2021 3:55:22 PM

In the furniture and similar sectors, where the tubes to be bent are often very long and curved into sometimes particularly complex shapes, the bending head must take up as little space as possible to leave room for the shape that the bent tube will assume.

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”.

Consider the Big Picture when Manufacturing Complex Tube Assemblies

Jun 30, 2020 4:30:00 PM

Manufacturers are continually looking for ways to eliminate waste in their manufacturing process and save cost. Tube fabricators are no different. This becomes even more evident when multiple tubes are required to build an assembly.

One of the most cumbersome challenges faced by tube fabricators is the joining of tube components. Difficulties are often encountered with fit-up, fixturing and assembly.

This is especially true when secondary process operations, such coping and mitering, are required after the bending process.
