Large-Diameter Tube Bending


The ELECT XL all-electric 12-axis tube-bending machine brings new levels of productivity, flexibility and accuracy to bending large-diameter tube up to 150 mm for automotive, machinery, motorcycle, hydraulic, railway and shipyard applications. Flexibility and productivity are both enhanced by the fact that the ELECT XL is a multistack bender capable of holding up to eight tool sets permitting rapid processing of complex parts and

faster changeover, benefits not generally associated with the bending of large- diameter tubes. The machine can be converted into right-hand or left-hand configurations, and features both fixed and variable radius bending. Change- over times are further reduced because all critical machine settings, such as clamping, pressure die, mandrel, etc., are automatically established by VGP3D graphical programming software and managed by the CNC control.
