Super Deal – Nearly New ADM-EB100-CNC Hybrid
A Heavy Duty / High Speed CENTRELINE-BOOST CNC Mandrel Tube Bending Machine
An ideal machine for bending thin wall: Inconel – Titanium – Stainless steel tube x 1D/clr
Built for Tennaco Walker USA to bend ‘Air-Gap’ parts – a tube within a tube. up to 4”od, a system developed by: Craig Webster.
The gap between the tubes was filled with lots of lead ball bearings prior to bending, removed after bending leaving an equal air gap space between inner and outer tubes. Bending upwards to prevent ball bearings contaminating the bend head. Head will be rotated to bend traditional right / left prior to delivery if preferred.
ADM-Electra-Bend 100-CNC Hybrid – A very powerful Electra Bend High Speed Mandrel tube bending machine.
All critical axes are ‘Electric’ and controlled via the Phenix CNC Control.
An ideal machine for bending: thin wall Inconel – Titanium – Stainless steel tube x 1D/clr
C/w: POB ‘Y’ axis Centreline Boost
Powered Pressure die assist
Direct acting pressure die – servo controlled
Hydraulic direct acting clamp – servo controlled
Hydraulic mandrel extraction
Automatic mandrel lubrication
A full CNC mandrel tube bending machine. Capable of bending tube sizes up to: 100mm/od x 10mm/wt. The bend head will be rotated to the conventional right to left bending process.
To minimise setup time and scrap material. The Direct-Acting Clamp, Pressure Die and Pressure-Die-Assist (Follower) are fully closed-loop CNC axes and feature no mechanical screw-adjusters, hydraulic flow controls or manual hydraulic pressure adjusters.
Following a tooling changeover, the Clamp and Pressure-Die are able to “Learn” their respective “closed” positions and will decelerate to these positions to help minimise wear and tear.
Furthermore, these actuators are fully coordinated. The advancing Y-axis carriage is synchronised with the opening of the Clamp to help minimise cycle-time. Also, the Pressure-Die and Clamp do not have to wait for completion of Y & B axis motion prior to closing.
The Pressure-Die-Assist (Follower) is synchronised with the C-axis bending arm, based on the bending die’s CLR. However, during the bending cycle, the actual velocity and force, exerted by the PDA, can be user-profiled. This feature provides total control of this critical tube-forming component.
The C-axis features a closed-loop AC Vector-Drive motor, directly coupled to a NORD helical-bevel gear-reducer. The Y-axis carriage positioning and Push-Assist features a closed-loop AC Vector-Drive, directly coupled to a Nord gear-reducer. Linear motion is via twin rack & pinions.
