SIXTY

Creative Elegance

Patented bending head rotations produce unprecedented flexibility

The SIXTY tube bending machine is a special model from the UP&DOWN series. It combines cross movements of the head with a rotational movement, which convey unique versatility and flexibility.
Features include:

  • fully electric
  • loads tubes directly into the bending former slot
  • uses loading grip with arm closed or open
  • provides choices in how to load tubes in the work space
  • can eliminate risk of interferences from the machine and external structures
  • always bends upwards
  • interesting bending head configuration integrates right and left in the same cycle
  • 11 controlled by Full Electric digital absolute servomotors
  • CNC Siemens 840D sl control unit
  • multistack and multiradius bends
  • high quality of production and energy savings
  • reduced set-up/start-up times
  • less process scrap
  • clamp and pressure-die are asynchronous: when upper plane moves forward, lower one moves back
  • slide motors can be re-positioned to avoid collisions
  • efficiency guaranteed by the dynamics of the plane positioner, which limits damage in case of accidental collision of the components
  • 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
  • designed to be integrated into work cells
  • maximum efficiency and energy savings also guaranteed by pneumatic balancing
  • smaller installed motor with higher performance levels
  • 3D graphics software on a 19” LCD touch screen
  • intuitive interaction for easy programming, simulation and optimization of tube
  • UII (User Iso Interface) software to simulate and optimize bending programs
  • designed to be integrated into Smart Factory systems
