The SMART all-electric tube bending machine is particularly well suited for bending complicated shapes and multiple radii tubes. It can be used in a wide range of configurations; from manual to robotic loading or with a range of automated loaders designed to handle straight tubes or pre-assembled tubes with formed ends, flanges or fittings. The entire system is managed from a single point via the VGP3D software, making programming and operating simple.
No experience needed
All movements are managed by an electric axis. Set-up is automatic, and all position and power parameters are saved together with the part program.
Two times more efficient
With the SMART, the cost per part is the lowest ever. You have speed, automatic optimized cycle and loading operations, all with an extremely low investment.
Designed for when the going gets tough
It makes bending radii of less than 1D with the guarantee of perfect repeatability and precision. With the electric control of all axes, you can tackle even the most technologically demanding bends with ease.
Perfect results from the first part
Quickly change production, eliminate waste, trial and error for mistake-free production of every new part, right from the start. It used to take many attempts and great skill to obtain the desired bending shape. Today, with B-Tools, your tube bending machine guarantees error-free production from the first part and reliance on operator skill level.
Automatic control features stop machine operation if a condition is detected. This means that processes are always reliable and safe. Material waste is prevented even if the process is unmanned.
Unstoppable, reliable, robust, and systematic. All you need to do is pick up the products at the end of the day.
Brilliant in every production context
Standalone or connected to an automatic feeder and loader. Combine with other BLM GROUP technologies, such as end-forming machines, lasertubes, or sawing machines.
Create your complete production process, manage it from a single control point and make it grow over time or adapt it to new uses.
