The 942XE is a tube bending machine of the Linear series for tubes up to 42 millimetres in diameter. Its most important feature is its extremely compact size. This completely electric CNC tube bending machine has a very small bending head with direct transmission and a compact chassis that ensure rigidity, efficiency and the ability to bend tubes that normally require a double bending direction. Its compactness also permits this machine to be integrated perfectly in automated work cells.
Like the other machines in the Linear series, this compact tube bending machine can also produce multistack and multiradius bends, and can work with tools for variable radius thrust bending. Furthermore, the possibility of simple manual reconfiguration of the bending direction from right to left by the operator optimises the flexibility of the machine.
The 942XE can be fitted with a number of tools simultaneously also with different bending radii and clamping. Its compact design also makes it possible to fit the already existing tools.
The 942XE can be used with all the accessories designed for the other linear tube bending machines to carry out specific jobs and meet the client’s production requirements. The horizontal dynamics of the plane positioner limit damage to the machine in the event of components colliding.
The use of recirculating ball guides for the movement of the linear organs reduces wear on the 942XE and at the same time improves its performance.
The machine offers a high production rate and can produce bends with a CLR/DIA ratio even less than 0.8.
The 9 controlled axes that govern the machine are driven by absolute digital electric motors with Full Electric technology and controlled by a CNC Siemens 840D sl . Using the intuitive three-dimensional UII (User Iso Interface) programming software on a 19” LCD touch screen, the operator can interact with the machine to simulate and optimise programs for the production of the pieces.
This machine is designed to be integrated into Smart Factory systems.
