The 980HE CNC tube bender offers multiple, fully automatic bending cycles. This machine employs particular constructive concepts which allow higher rigidity and higher performances in comparison with the existing bending machines of the same size. This machine is ideal for those works which require the contemporaneous employ of several tooling sets, as it can assure a perfect execution of complex shapes even for those tubes with a small wall thickness. The structure of the bending head assures high stiffness while heavy working, and the high stroke of vertical axis allows increasing the available working plains, while saving the charging ergonomy. The relatively small size of the bending head allows the creation of close shapes, in a single cycle, even for tubes that normally require two-way bending. This provides significant gains in productivity and accuracy. The machine is also prearranged for integration inside working cells. All nine axes are driven by electric motors with digital Full Electric technology and controlled by the Siemens 840 Dsl CNC; there are no hydraulics. This provides high quality, energy conservation, and low (to zero) waste setup. With the device "Tangent Boost" (optional) the machine can push axially on the tube during bending in the slide/wiper-die zone to reduce wasted tube by reducing required cut lengths. The operator programs the machine through an intuitive interface on color LCD screen 19”. The three-dimensional graphics software, UII "User ISO Interface", facilitates the programming, simulation, and optimization of the bending cycle.
