The 114HE CNC tube bender offers multiple, fully automatic bending cycles. This machine employs particular patented constructive concepts, which allow higher rigidity and higher performances. This machine is ideally suited for those works, which require the contemporaneous employ of several tooling sets, as it can assure a perfect execution of complex shapes even for those tubes with a small wall thickness. The structure of the bending head, translating horizontally, assures high stiffness while heavy working and it is possible to increase the number of working stacks, thanks to high stroke of the long beams, that incorporates the positioner and the extractor. The relatively small size of the bending head allows the creation of close shapes, in a single cycle, even for tubes that normally require two-way bending. This provides significant gains in productivity and accuracy. The machine is also prearranged for integration inside workcells. All axes are driven by electric motors with digital Full Electric technology and controlled by the Siemens 840D sl CNC; there are no hydraulics. This provides high quality, energy conservation, and low (to zero) waste setup. With the device “Tangent Boost” (optional) the machine can push axially on the tube during bending in the slide/wiper-die zone to reduce wasted tube by reducing required cut lengths. The operator programs the machine through an intuitive interface on color LCD screen 19”. The three-dimensional graphics software, UII “User ISO Interface”, facilitates the programming, simulation, and optimization of the bending cycle.
