BENDING CNC-CONTROLLED STRETCH BENDING / FREE FORM BENDING

We can look back to more than 30 years of experience in design, construction and operation of stretch bending machines. Only by this combination are we able to meet the requirements of the market relating to complexity and quality of product, in most cases being 3D formed components. Through the permanent advancement of processes and machines we set benchmarks in this technology.

Capitalising on our knowledge of design and construction of these units has helped establish our position as market leader in this sector of material forming. The experiences gained in the production process have influenced the development of new production series. By standardising the machines where possible we are in the position to offer economic solutions for the customers different requirements and materials. 

Related bending technologies like 3-point-roll bending or free form bending complete our portfolio of bending technologies.

Equipment:

(70) stretch bending machines, 
(1) CNC Free form bending machine

Number of axis:

Maximum 5 axis in the machine, other axis can be incorporated in the tool

Stretch forming pressure: Currently 15 tonnes in operation but up to 28 tonnes is possible
Geometry: 2D and 3D formed components can be manufactured
Process:

Powered hydraulically or electrically, with or without filler, additional operations can also be integrated

Material:

Aluminium (even high-strength, precipitation possible), steel (even high-strength), magnesium
