Tube Fabricator Adds New Bender, Inspection Machine

Wednesday, December 9, 2009
 
Harco Metal Products, Tempe, AZ, a supplier of fabricated tubular components and assemblies, has upgraded its capabilities by acquiring a Wafios BMZ 42 tube bender and an Accurex TubeInspect HD inspection machine. The Wafios bender (www.wafios.de) forms tube to 12.7-mm dia. by 1-mm wall thickness, and wire to 8-mm dia. Its bending head enables left and right bending operations in one clamping, for the production of complicated 2D and 3D workpieces in one pass. The Accurex 3D tube-measurement system (www.accurexmeasure.com) employs eight overhead cameras for quick, automated inspection and includes software that provides a complete analysis of tube shape and profile to deliver direct feedback to CNC bending machines for quick correction of out-of-specification parts. Harco is online at www.tubebending.net.
