Twin-head tube/bar bender
Published: 11 June 2012 - Heather Ramsden
Unison’s all-electric twin-head bending machines are said to be popular with manufacturers producing tubular parts that have a high degree of symmetry because they can form two bends simultaneously, increasing manufacturing productivity significantly. Many applications can be found in industry including the production of parts for supermarket trolleys, wheelbarrows, furniture, and automotive.
“It’s very easy to realise much higher efficiency and throughput of bending operations with Unison’s particular style of all-electric twin-head machines,” says Jim Saynor, Unison sales manager. “They provide the documented energy saving benefits of our ‘all-electric’ architecture, as well as the auto setup feature of our other machines, requiring minimal operator involvement for ‘right first time’ manufacturing. Our twin-head machines are also designed to have low maintenance requirements – they utilise high efficiency ballscrew and linear bearing systems, servomotors, belts and gearboxes. The product is available for standalone operation using manual feeding and unloading, or it can be integrated with various levels of ancillary automation.
