The 1055E is the largest model offered in the UP&DOWN series. It is a fully automatic CNC tube bending machine for tubes up to 55 mm in diameter and 2.5 mm thick, and has 20kW of intstalled power.
The peculiarity of this machine is the cross movement of the head. During the fully automatic cycle, this machine can be used to create tube geometries that normally require post-processing operations, guaranteeing faster production rates and precision.
The cross moves above, below, and to the right and left of the tube, overcoming problems concerning the dimensions of the machine and of the processed piece, making it possible to select and quickly change work plane, making right and left bends, and integrating loading and unloading into the cycle.
The clamp and pressure-die on the machine are synchronised: the upper and lower work planes open simultaneously.
The 1055E is a multistack, multiradius machine (with at least 6 work planes). Thanks to the high vertical stroke, it can simultaneously use multiple tools with different radii and locks.
All the movements of the machine’s axes are on recirculation guides which do not require lubrication and cause less wear compared to traditional guides. Efficiency is also guaranteed by high-load sphere recirculation screws, which control the movements of the clamp and pressure-die.
The 10 controlled axes that govern the machine’s movements are driven by digital motors with “Full Electric” technology and controlled by a CNC Siemens 840D sl. Using this technology ensures high quality, energy savings, reduced set-up/start up time and minimal scrap.
In addition, energy savings and maximum productivity are guaranteed by pneumatic balancing, which makes it possible to use a smaller, higher performance motor.
The high production rate, capacity for use with a vast range of accessories for specific unusual jobs, and ability to produce bends with a CLR/DIA ratio even lower than 0.8 or thrust bends with variable radius make this machine suitable for use in sectors where efficiency and productivity are prime requirements. This tube bending machine is also equipped for integration in work cells.
This model is also equipped with a three-dimensional graphical software on a 19” LCD Touch screen, from which the operator can interact intuitively with the machine. The UII (“User Iso Interface”) facilitates programming, by simulating and optimising the bending programs. The 1055E is designed to be integrated into Smart Factory systems.
