High-Volume Tube Cutting, BendingJuly 23, 2021
Designed for high volumes, short cycle times and resource-saving material handling, the CNC 80 E TB MR tube cutting and bending machine from Schwarz Robitec is matched to the requirements of the automotive industry. Production time reportedly is reduced by as much as 40 percent compared to conventional machines, depending on the component and the desired tube geometry, and material waste is reduced by as much as 90 percent.
The machine bends and cuts tubes in a single work step thanks to an integrated, fully electric cutting device. A vertically adjustable pressure die moves to the different levels for bending synchronously with the tube. The intelligent NxG control checks the interaction of all machine axes for each bending sequence and simultaneously prepares all axes for subsequent steps. In addition, the machine features a quick tool-changing system in combination with a rapid clamping system; no bolts are required to fasten the bend former to the turntable.
