The MBRE model is an electro-hydraulic bender with double bending head intended for 3D bending and curling of tubes and profiles. The machine comes with 5 servo driven axes (bending, tube rotation, horizontal and vertical shift of the bending head, and tube positioning) whilst the carriage shift is equipped with a rear booster to push tube into the bending area helping to combat slippage and achieve tighter radius. Other machine functions are controlled hydraulically ie: clamping jaws, collet chucks and mandrel shift. Additional features include automatic mandrel lubrication and retraction.
It is possible to either fit both bending heads with 3 different bending tools simultaneously or 2 bending tools and a roller for the rolling of big radius parts (push bending).
Operations are from a control panel with touch display which is mounted on a portable stand. The machine is controlled by an industrial PC equipped with Windows and a USB connector for data transfer. Bender software allows the input of data for the complete bending cycle whilst saved data can be copied, edited and backed up.
