Tube Benders

MODEL

4 Electric Axis Tube Benders + Roll Bending + 1D Bending
Advanced DGT Technology and i2 software ( intelligence interface )

The V series CNC tube benders ( 1D Pipe Bending Machine ) combine Draw and Roll Bending technology. This combination allows the pipe bending of 2 different fixed radiuses and multiple large roll bending radiuses in a single part. Coupled with Individual Pressure Die Systems assist in each draw bending stack, it brings superior performance and flexibility. The V series pipe bending machine equipped with DGT technology.

 

  • With SOCO’s unique DGT technology
  • Rack pinion feeding
  • SOCO Proprietary Pipe Bending Operation Software
  • Multi-stacks for Draw and Roll (Large Radius) bending
  • Programmable Boosting Force for 1D Bending (*)
  • Ability to bend parts with “0” straight lengths
  • Programmable arc lengths for large radiuses
  • Roll Bending Springback compensation settings
  • Special bending compensation and data storage fields
  • Low noise level with highest transmission performance
  • 80mm and 90mm range may be equipped with SOCO DBS system ( 2C – Double Blades Shearing ) ( Optional )

(*) in accordance to material’s elongation ratio

Advanced DGT
SOCO’s unique DGT technology ( Direct Gear Transmission ) is the worldwide patented tube bending system that brings you the most efficient and stable bending process, offering the highest accuracy and repeatability in draw and roll bending. The Advantages of DGT : 
 
  • Chain free transmission
  • Built-in gearbox with direct connection to electric servo
  • Highest transmission performance ( 90%+ efficiency ) against other gear based systems
  • High bending accuracy ( +- 0.05° ~ +-0.1° )
  • Low noise level
  • Maximum Working Area = Minimal Interference
  • Elongated neck for superior clearance (***)
  • Compact bending head
  • Side carriage and bending head (***)
 
 
 
 
 
 
2C - The SOCO DBS System
This patented Double Blade Shearing System may be implemented on all SOCO Booster pipe benders. Some of the features:
 
  • The Double Blade Shearing System allows for automation of bending and cutting processes in one machine, from a single tube
  • This system creates the least amount of cutting deformation, enabling the finished part to be immediately used for a subsequent process without having to calibrate or deburr it
  • By bending and cutting continuously, there is virtually no waste between bends, saving vast amounts of material per year
  • Savings on space, manpower, machinery and material, while increasing production rates
  • Higher precision and quality in finished parts, as the bent part does not need to be manually taken to a separate machine to be cut into pieces on a semi-automatic saw
  • The software allows for programming up 4 different parts on the same stock material, maximizing utilization of the complete tube.
