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. But the material was very long and too thick for the diameter top roll that would be required – so there would have been too much force for the top roll to resist.

The Solution

The solution was to provide supports and reinforcements to the top and side rolls. SweBend PB4 bending machines can have as standard fully adjustable CNC controlled support rolls under the bottom bending roll, to create CNC Crowning. This is necessary to produce cylindrical parts by removing the deflection of longer bottom rolls.

Tailored for YOU!

As the UK authorised partner for SweBend we provide full sales, service and support for the entire range of SweBend bending machines, all of which are developed, engineered, designed and assembled at their headquarters in Sweden with every machine tailored to specific customer requirements.

With a standard range of models as a foundation, SweBend design and produce custom-built and adapted plate rolls for each specific customer needs such as unique roll diameter, special roll length or even customised shape of rolls. So with this unique level of customisation on every machine added to the highest prebending power and drive torque in the industry that’s why our SweBend customers can out-bend any competition for years to come!
