One of the main highlights will be the new CLEVER fully electric tube bending machine with 25mm tube capacity that features left and right hand bending on the fly using a single tilting head concept rather than our traditional double head machines. This technical solution increases the speed of the overall cycle which reduces cycle time.
The CLEVER machine is the result of our search for an innovative solution that provides automatic loading and unloading incorporated into the cycle using the tilting head. This allows the machine to pick a tube from a variety of tube loaders and place the bent tube on an exit conveyor for a fully automatic cycle. An international patent has been obtained for this ingenious solution. As with all Crippa tube bending machines it is possible to add accessories such as hole and feature locating, weld seam detection, etc. The machine shown is fitted with a telescopic tunnel cover which reduces the footprint required on the shop floor. The frame of the CLEVER is designed to easily add extensions to increase the maximum tube length.
