Having been founded in 1903, Schwarze-Robitec is among the international leading experts in the area of tube bending machines. At the head office in Cologne, the bending machine specialist employs 130 staff. Over 2,400 machines have been sold to date, many of which have been in unrestricted use in production for over 35 years. In addition to tube bending machines and bending tools, the range also includes tube perforating machines, measuring systems and solutions in special engineering. Our list of references includes manufacturers from the automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding industries etc.

For more than 40 years, the German company with a long-standing tradition has been offering its pipe-bending technologies and its comprehensive service in the USA. In 2015, Schwarze-Robitec opened its branch office in the USA. Since then, a team of service engineers has been answering all support requests directly on-site. The expert team also provides spare parts procurement as well as machine maintenance and advises users on how to optimize their existing systems and bending processes. Therefore, the branch office in Grand Rapids works closely with the experienced specialists at Schwarze-Robitec headquarters in Cologne, Germany.

  • Compact and high performance – Eberspächer banks on Schwarze-Robitec at site in Portugal

    The capacity of a large tube bending machine with the compact dimensions of a smaller one – For particularly challenging components, Schwarze-Robitec combines the benefits of two different machines in the CNC 80/60 E TB MR. The Cologne-based manufacturer of tube bending machines has successfully commissioned two of these fully electric multiple-radius tube bending machines featuring transport boost technology at automotive supplier Eberspächer’s site in Portugal. As one of the world’s leading system developers and suppliers of exhaust technology, Eberspächer utilises the energy-efficient machines from Schwarze-Robitec’s High Performance series to manufacture tubes for complex exhaust systems.

    International emissions standards require manufacturers to lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, reinforcing the need for increasingly efficient systems to reduce pollution from cars and commercial vehicles. It’s a challenge that Eberspächer faces at its Exhaust Technology product unit. The company designs efficient systems for exhaust gas post treatment – ranging from conventional mufflers to highly complex purification technology. In manufacturing, this not only requires the use of lightweight and thin materials, but also the short cycle times and high speeds that are typical for the automotive industry – and on top of that a large degree of process security. With the two new CNC 80/60 E TB MR tube bending machines supplied by Schwarze-Robitec, the company is now perfectly equipped to tackle these challenges at its production site in Tondela, Portugal.

    Intermediate size delivers high bending performance and process security
    With the CNC 80/60 E TB MR, Schwarze-Robitec is combining two special requirements in one machine: As an intermediate size, it features the bending head transmission and thus the bending capacity of a CNC 80. In addition, its vertical multiple-radius construction matches that of a more compact CNC 60 – as Eberspächer processes tubes with diameters of no more than 50 millimetres (1,97 inch). This enables the company to produce its challenging exhaust technology components with a sufficient level of machine performance and high process security yet in a cost-efficient manner. By supplying tube bending machines like these, Schwarze-Robitec is displaying its flexibility in addressing the individual requirements of its clients.

    When it comes to purchasing new machines for its sites in Europe, Eberspächer has been placing its trust in Schwarze-Robitec for years. Its production facility in Tondela is now for the first time equipped with machines featuring cutting-edge NxG control systems – these are up to 35 percent faster in operation than machines without NxG control systems.


  • CNC 25 E TB MR
    The CNC 25 E TB MR is Schwarze-Robitec’s newest fully electric tube bending machine for smaller tube diameters with intelligent NxG control system: Almost all CNC axes can be operated simultaneously during bending – reducing production times enormously....

  • With the CNC 25 E TB MR, Schwarze-Robitec has developed a compact machine for bending small tube diameters. The fully electric machine enables extremely fast production speeds because of its NxG control system: Depending on the tube geometry to be bent, the NxG control allows up to 50 percent more output, because almost all axes are moved simultaneously during the bending process.

    The machine is equipped with intelligent scanners and a slim machine cover. Therefore, no additional protective fencing is needed. The electronics are integrated into the machine body rendering an added control cabinet obsolete. Because of this compact design, the machine allows customers to make optimum use of their available space.

    The CNC 25 E TB MR – with state-of-the-art safety technology – is available in left and right bending versions and in a rotary variant for both bending directions thanks to a rotating bending head. This way, even tubes with complex tube geometries can be bent in only one step.
