Stauff, a global manufacturer and supplier of precision fluid power products for a wide range of industries, has purchased two new Unison Breeze 35 mm (maximum pipe diameter) left- and right-hand pipe bending machines. One machine has been installed at the company’s manufacturing site in Sheffield, UK, with the other now in situ at a production facility in Sydney, Australia.
This latest purchase of Unison Breeze machines by Stauff follows on from the organisation’s recently signed five-year strategic partnership with Unison Ltd, an agreement providing all Stauff operations around the world with dedicated in-country support, assistance with product development and other benefits. Once both new Breeze models are operational, there will be no fewer than 15 Unison tube and pipe bending machines at Stauff’s manufacturing centres around the globe.
“We’ve worked with Unison for more than 10 years,” says Ken Cleal, head of production at Stauff UK and Stauff global production manager for tube and tube manipulation. “Throughout that time, we’ve received nothing short of the highest levels of service and support from them, whether that be assistance with product development, operator training, or machine tool maintenance. Unison machines consistently provide the uncompromising levels of accuracy and repeatability that are essential to our operations. Additionally, Unison’s Unibend operating system is exceptionally intuitive and user-friendly, making it extremely popular with our teams.”
Stauff’s new 35 mm Unison Breeze left- and right-hand machines will manufacture small-run complex components, such as hydraulic lines for braking systems. Materials bent will include aluminium, corrosion-resistant steel and exotic alloys. With the ability to bend in both clockwise and anticlockwise directions, the machines are ideal for parts of complex geometry.
