RD20 CNC Tube Bender with Integrated Tube Cutter
Winton Machine’s RD20 CNC tube bender can be integrated with a tube cutter. The photo shows a tube magazine loader (bar feeder) loading straight lengths of tubes into a CNC chipless type tube cutter. Once cut, the tube blank is transferred into a triple stack CNC tube bender for processing. An automatic tube unloader removes the tube after bending.
Controlled by a Windows platform, the forming tube bender cell requires (1) operator to load the bar feeded and remove finished tubular parts after bending. An optional on board diagnostic system shows the status of all digital inputs and outputs.
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) bending 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.
One of the advantages of this cell is the number of operators required. In a traditional manufacturing environment an operator for the tube cutter and an operator for the tube bender would be necessary. Integrating the two CNC machines reduces labor requirement, not to mention the time saved from transporting the cut blanks to the tube bender.
Winton Machine produces CNC tube & pipe benders with loaders as well. Give us a call. We would like to help you reduce your cost of goods sold.
All tube benders are designed and tested in house. We use standard purchased components to build every tube bending machine. We at Winton are proud of the quality of every tube bender sold. Please, call us today and ask how the quality of the tube bending machines we build will translate into quality bent tubing on your shop floor.
