The Springmatic optical measuring system from Schwarze-Robitec is integrated into the bending tool.

Immediately after the bending of a tube, the new optical measuring system records the rebound value, from which the CNC control of the tube-bending machine calculates the required subsequent bending angle.

Subsequent bending is carried out either fully automatically if desired or after clearance by the machine operator.

When developing the measuring system the company says it placed particular emphasis on a very broad range of applications and it can check both thick and thin-walled tubes in the broadest range of materials and diameters. The system can be integrated into almost any bending tool and combined with almost all tube bending machines from Schwarze-Robitec.
