The last 6 months have been tough on nearly every sector with latest figures confirming the UK is officially back in a recession. Now more than ever your bending machines need to produce accurate bends first time, on time but obsolete or inadequate controls can seriously hinder the ability of many older bending machines to do so.
As is often the case, a client presents with a specification request that is outside of the normal limits of available technology. In this instance, the client needed to bend very tight radius profiles which limited the diameter of the top roll.
Plate Bending Machines for sheet metal are increasing in size every year. To meet the new demands of the market, SweBend has designed and built a new 3-roll plate bending machine with BlueTooth control delivering 1700 ton in prebending force and a rolling capacity of 4050x105mm.
Often the mechanics of a machine will outlast the electrics many times over which means controls can become obsolete or inadequate. This can cause serious limitations to both production rates and the precision performance of your bending machine.
An informative series of ‘How to’ articles on bending is to be launched by our partners SweBend, the bending machine specialists.
Create smooth bends in 3D with SweBend’s Continuous Push & Turn Bending system. Turn the piece simultaneously as it is being bent and pushed through. This system is ideal for production where smooth curves and transitions between multiple radii is necessary.
The world has been amused by the thrill, adrenaline and stomach twisting sensation of riding roller coasters ever since the 18th Century when the world’s first roller coasters, called “Russian Mountains” were invented. Today’s roller coasters run, roll, spin and drop faster, all to provide a more profound experience for the riders!
Over the last couple of years SweBend has enjoyed tremendous growth, working with companies within a wide range of industries all over the world to deliver cutting edge bending technology and solutions. In recognition of this SweBend are pleased to announce that the company has been nominated for the highly distinguished 2018 Di Gasell award.
For those requiring volume production and recognising the need for increased efficiencies, Swebend offer a full range of automated solutions. With the ability to deliver a complete turnkey solution from their in-house design or to collaborate with 3rd party integrators, Swebend are the perfect partner to trust.
Powered by a 2,2kW motor and equipped with an adjustable, hardened and coated bending wedge placed at the side of the rolls, this particular machine easily bends 4mm plates to a minimum diameter of 250mm. For those of you who know the old Corando machines, this machine type can be a direct replacement.
