980LE

Great performance in a tiny space

The largest Linear series model is flexible, compact, powerful, and versatile.

The Linear Series 980LE is a CNC tube bending machine for tubes up to 3,15 inches in diameter.
Features include:

  • standard 220,5'' frame length can be extended with or without the recovery cycle
  • pneumatic balance, a cutting-edge system that improves energy savings and performance
  • extremely small steel bending head with chain driven transmission
  • more space under the bending head to process more complex tube geometries in a single cycle
  • bending direction can be reconfigured manually to set up and start up more quickly
  • compact size ensures extreme versatility
  • vertical excursion enables simultaneous use of more than one set of tools at the same with different radii and clamping
  • designed for easy integration with already existing tools
  • reliability guaranteed by technological solutions
  • reduced change of component damage from accidental collision
  • horizontal dynamics of the plane positioner
  • axes on recirculating ball and roller guides that reduce wear and improve performance
  • can use with a wide range of accessories, such as the Tangent Boost device to push the tube axially during bending also in the area of the slide and wiper-die
  • quicker processes and reduced scrap
  • optional cutting system
  • high production rate
  • use with a vast range of accessories for specific and unusual jobs
  • can produce bends with CLR/DIA ratio lower than 0.8, or thrust bends with variable radius
  • 9 controlled axes driven by Full Electric motors
  • CNC Siemens 840D sl
  • 3D graphics software on a 19” LCD touch screen
  • intuitive interaction for easy programming, simulation and optimization of tube
  • designed to be integrated into Smart Factory systems
