All-Electric Tube Bender

Description

SMART™, the new all-electric tube bending machine from BLM GROUP USA, provides flexibility, precision, quick changeover and ease of programming and operation for small diameter tube bending applications. The compact unit also provides users with a space saving and energy efficient design.

This multi-tool stack bender is suitable for bending tubes up to 1.12" diameter and can be fitted with automatic load/unload units for extended periods of untended operation.  The high-production, small footprint 12-axis tube bender can produce complex tubular components in a single cycle. With its ability to perform a combination of left and right hand bends, conventional and variable radius bends, multi-radius, tight and compound bends, the SMART provides consistent accuracy (± 0.00196" x-axis;
 ± 0.05° y and z-axes) throughout the application.

SMART’s easy to use, 3D graphical programming software (VGP3D) provides real-time simulation of the bending operation and automatically corrects for possible collision points. It selects the optimum machine parameters for the cycle, thus maximizing productivity and quality while minimizing operator involvement and changeover time. The system also permits off-line programming for high degrees of automation and production planning.

SMART’s advanced all-electric design can significantly reduce maintenance costs and downtime, thanks in part to the removal of all hydraulic devices such as fittings, tubes, cylinders and valves. In addition, the full-digital connections of the motors allow users to obtain diagnostic information about each machine component, helping ensure optimal machine performance and minimal downtime. SMART is also economical to run, with power consumption reduced up to 50% compared to electro-hydraulic machines, and environmentally friendly since oil spills and oil disposal become things of the past.
