With the newly developed, fully electric CNC 25 E TB MR, SchwarzeRobitec says it has created and supplied a compact tube-bending machine sporting the ‘made in Germany’ seal, to China. For the first time, Changzhou Liangxu Vehicle Accessories Co Ltd is now able to bend smaller tube diameters quickly, and as part of a fully electric process, thanks to the NxG control system.
Changzhou Liangxu Vehicle Accessories manufactures injection tubes and radiator outlet pipes for cars and trucks, and is the main supplier of tube systems for China’s third-biggest truck manufacturer. At the company’s headquarters in Changzhou, Schwarze-Robitec recently put a new CNC 25 E TB MR into operation. The delivered machine is capable of bending steel tubes with a diameter of up to 1” and a wall thickness of 0.08”, as well as stainless-steel tubes with a diameter of up to 0.8” and a wall thickness of 0.06”.
This capability means that, for smaller tube diameters, Changzhou Liangxu Vehicle Accessories is using a fully electric machine with NxG control for the first time, which offers major benefits. For example, depending on the tube system, the NxG control system enables up to 50% more output thanks to simultaneous operation of the axes. The company is thus ideally preparing itself for the rise in demand brought on by the prolonged boom in China’s automotive industry.
With the CNC 25 E TB MR, Schwarze-Robitec has developed a machine for small tubes that is available in both left/right bending versions, as well as
in a rotary variant, with the bending head capable of rotating 180°. Tubes with complex geometries can thus be bent in one process step.
