The latest generation of machines can process isometrics data online. There are also positions stored in the control system, for where the piece is picked up and dropped off. In addition to this, it is also possible to retrieve the position for the necessary supports for long tubes. Because of this, a complete new complex bending geometry can be programmed and bent quickly, in max. 30 minutes. This including the set-up of the bending tools.
Synchronized and coded for clear identification
The transfluid bending cells with two robots bend long tubes at both ends. This way tubes can be supplied with forming, hoses or connection systems. The preparation and cleaning of the tubes becomes a lot easier. It is much better to process straight tubes, when the bending machine can bend at both ends. These benefits can be enjoyed both when bending with one or two robots.
With a set-up with two robots it is possible to process tubes of up to 6,000 mm without any problems. The two robots work in a synchronized way. Additional equipment like clamping or support devices also synchronize with the processing robot. The robots recognize the component with a code, generate the bending sequence and they can also choose between different radii and diameters. It is possible to work with a total of six different tube diameters or radii without having to change the dies.
Advanced processing, greater output
With the new developments and improvements from transfluid, a production cell with two robots can do more than bend a tube at both ends: each of the bending robots can also process different geometries. Both machines are working all the time and the system can be used efficiently and with a significantly higher output.
