Differentiation of bending machines
It is quite clear that the quality factor must also be taken into account with these machines. There are many manufacturers on the market who offer bending machines with different adjustment possibilities and roll drives. ProHandling informs you comprehensively and manufacturer-independently about types and differences of different bending machines.
The drive of the bending machines
Depending on the type of bending machine, this point may vary; above a certain size, the roll adjustment and the drive of the rollers are mainly hydraulic.
How is a bending machine controlled?
The bending pressure applied to the profile or tube is set manually and controlled manually or electrically, depending on the design. This is more often used for smaller jobs. This version is mainly of interest for one-off production. The advantage is the favourable purchase price. However, in order to be able to work quickly and accurately, experience in working with a profile bending machine is required.
NC control is an interesting solution for small batches. As with manual control, the appropriate bending pressure must first be set by the operator. As soon as this has been found, the setting can be saved and adjusted at the next profile bending at the touch of a button.
The CNC control is interesting for larger components, various small or large series. Here, only the parameters must be entered into the CNC control. The bending machine then bends the desired bending radius at the push of a button.
