Schwarze-Robitec has developed a fully electric tube cold bending machine designed to produce complex curve contours in a single operation.

CNC 40 Rotary can process materials such as aluminium, titanium, copper, steel and stainless steel with a diameter of 6-40mm. Even tubes with pre-formed contours on the straight tube can be bent fl exibly to the right and left, says the company.

Schwarze-Robitec says that, despite the reduced cycle time, there is no loss of bending freedom and no damage to the tube surface.

CNC 40 works with one bending head and up to 13 CNC axes. The machine caters to requirements for both partially and fully automated production, and initial training takes one day.

According to Schwarze- Robitec, it reduces investment volume by around 20% compared with conventional solutions.
