AUTOMATED PLATE ROLL – SHEET METAL BENDER FOR TRUCK PRODUCTION
SweBend manufacture high-precision bending machines which are powerful and easy to use for any job. The PB4-6-7 with SEVEN Gold CNC is an automated 4-roll plate bending machine developed by SweBend’s in-house team which is used to produce aluminium fuel tanks for trucks. Here’s a closer look at the PB4-6-7 with SEVEN Gold CNC for bending.
What is this CNC Plate Bending Machine?
The PB4-6-7 with SEVEN Gold CNC improves production quality thanks to its increased simplicity, a necessary trait considering the increased material demands and tighter tolerances that exist. New exacting requirements shouldn’t halt your creativity and production levels. As a bending machine manufacturer, SweBend are adamant in ensuring that clients have leeway for the innovation they need.
SweBend top-quality 4 roll plate bending machines are the perfect choice for clients who need to do repetitive series production. It comes with a double pinch bending mechanism that allows you to get the best results possible with just one pass, leading to less time spent on production. The bending precision it provides gives it the full capabilities to mass-produce radii transitions as well as various complex . Please visit our Current Vacancies page to apply.
How does the Bending Machine CNC Work?
This CNC plate bending machine uses an entirely automatic process, with the machine being integrated into the clients automated production line.
A factory network notifies the CNC plate bending machine about the plate type for the project at hand. From there, the bending machine switches programs by itself before bending. Then, it sends the plate onward into the production line. The bending process does not require the involvement of an operator. See below the self-reliant and simple operation this machine offers:
When the 4-roll sheet metal bending machine is told what material needs to be bent, it adjusts the plate infeed system. The correct suction cups are activated based on the plate size. It’s a strong all-around machine that’s perfect for 24/7 production. The plates in the video are ⅛ inch and are easily handled by the machine.
How the CNC For Bending Works for Trucks
SweBend bending machines are used to make sturdy aluminium fuel tanks for trucks. This includes Mercedes-Benz trucks, Freightliner trucks, and FUSO trucks. The trucks which are equipped with state-of-the-art technologies demand light weight, good looking fuel tanks and SweBend bending machines were specifically chosen because they fit effortlessly with existing advanced production technology, in one case replacing an old Roundo bending machine with a sheet metal bender that’s modern and projected for the coming years and decades.
In addition, the surface is super sensitive and the rolls of this CNC plate bending machine are adapted so that they don’t make any scratches or marks. Every plate bending project is clean and fluid, optimising the production process.
The Power of CNC for Bending
SweBend’s virtually limitless SEVEN CNC System is powered by an Intelligent Algorithm System. Its emphasis is on precision bending and simplification, creating anything with powerful applications, minimising downtime with online support, and optimising every production aspect.
The SweBend CNC system leverages stepless variable speed controls and the industry’s most accurate roll parallelism capability, using several sensors to simplify the production process and offer you the most precise bends on the market. Additionally, SweBend has developed a powerful and fully capable wireless Bluetooth unit that controls up to five axes, plus a handful of auxiliary functions.
What are the Biggest Advantages of the CNC Plate Bending Machine?
The PB4-6-7- with SEVEN Gold CNC is a 4-roll plate bending machine that uses advanced engineering techniques to execute plate bending projects timely, doing more work with less input. SweBend ensures the highest pre-bending power possible with this CNC plate bending machine. It also has the highest drive torque compared to other similarly sized machines in the market.
This innovation driver ensures machine longevity, and provides the best return on investment for your production. Plate bending has never been easier.
