980LE

Advanced functions for maximum precision

With the “Tangent Boost” device, the machine can push axially on the tube during bending also in the slide/counter-slide area, optimising the tube development and reducing possible waste.

The 980LE CNC tube bender offers multiple, fully automatic bending cycles. 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 bending head allows the simultaneous use of multiple types of tooling including different radii, compound clamps, and variable radius dies. The head is also designed to be manually transformable for either clockwise or counterclockwise bending and the machines are prearranged to be integrated inside working cells. All nine 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. The high production speed, the ability to integrate special devices, and the possibility of creating bends with a radius of less than 0.8D or push with variable radius bends (optional) mean that these machines are mainly used by those working in the automotive, aerospace, urban design, and shipbuilding industries. With the device “Tangent Boost” (optional) the machine can push axially on the tube during bending in the bending former/wiper-die zone to reduce wasted tube by reducing required cut lengths. The operator programs the machine through an intuitive interface on Touch LCD screen 19”. The three-dimensional graphics software, UII “User ISO Interface”, facilitates the programming, simulation, and optimization of the bending cycle.
