What is the difference between SweBend 3 and 4 roll machines?
Generally, 3 roll machines are better suited for bending companies that perform many unique bending operations and require high versatility. 3 Roll machines are mostly delivered with manual controls and depend totally on the experience and skill of the operator.
4 roll machines are better suited for repetitive series production and are almost always equipped with SweBend’s powerful CNC to create Precise Bends time after time with the highest precision. Many 4 roll machines used for production of lighter parts are integrated into robot loaded cells with automatic load and offload. A shorter straight end on the leading edge is available with 4 roll systems.
I have a unique profile/shape/material. Is it possible to bend?
SweBend specialise in tailored bending and forming machines. Please send us your specifications and we’ll advise on what is possible.
