RD8 CNC Dual Stack Semi-rigid Coax Bender

Product Description

The RD8 dual stack CNC coax bending machine is built to bend semi-rigid coax cable where two different bend radii are required within the same part. Production ready, with or without a manual saw, this three axis, all electric coax bender, uses a Windows interface for operator control.

The RD8 bends semi-rigid cable using a rotary wipe process. This technique has proven to be most the most gentle process when bending semi-rigid cable. This goes a long way in providing for excellent signal transmission (on average an SWR of 1.12:1 or better) when the cable is in its final assembly. The collet closer that holds the coax during the bending process is designed specifically to grip, yet be gentle, on the cable’s outside jacket preventing an increase in the SWR.

The design of the carriage spindle allows the end of the coax cable to get right up next to the bend tooling on the very last bend. This often translates into avoiding a trimming operation after bending.

Software features include hitch feed, pause before bend, XYZ to LRA conversion, interference checking, 3 axis per bend speed settings, and more. An optional STEP file converter allows a user to read in a CAD generated STEP file direct from CAD right into the bender’s controller. This eliminates the need to input the cable’s bend data into the controller. Once the STEP file has been read in, production is about to start. It’s that simple.

The RD8 is fast, accurate and repeatable. Designed and built in the US, this coax bender is production ready. Give us a call with your application. We are here to help.
