To keep programming of new parts down to a minimum, the tube bender can be linked directly to engineering. Engineering can download a CAD generated STEP file of the bent tube right into the cell’s controller. This helps cut down on programming time and programming errors. The controller reads the STEP file and extracts the LRA (YBC) bender data as well as the parts cut length. The cut length is sent to the CNC cutoff machine and the LRA bender data is sent to the CNC tube bending machine. It’s that simple.
Winton Machine’s RD20 CNC tube bender is a fast 3 axis CNC tube bending machine designed for reducing the time it takes to make bent parts. Controlled by a Windows-based interface platform, the tube bender requires manual loading and unloading. A standard on board diagnostic system shows the status of all digital inputs and outputs.
Winton designs and builds CNC tube benders, manual tube benders, CNC roll benders, CNC coax benders, tube end formers, manual hand tube benders, serpentine tube benders, vertical compression tube benders, CNC tube cutters, tube straighteners, CNC coax cutters, and a variety of other tube fabrication machinery in the United States.
