Wire bender features twin heads

BLM Group is consolidating its presence in the wire-bending market with a new twin-head system.

The DH4010VGP is an all-electric machine with two independent heads that is capable of bending wires up to 10 mm in diameter, along with bars, flat rods and tubes. The twin-head design makes the system suitable for medium to long parts with many bends, particularly when high planarity is required.
According to BLM, the two bending heads can work independently to make asymmetric parts. Each head is provided with a twin bending turret that increases system flexibility with regard to the achievable bend types.
The DH4010VGP can perform flexion bending (bending using a standard bushing) on each of the two turrets, pressure die bending for minimum radii, edge bending, variable radius bending, and strike bending on the same part. Moreover, the bending heads can move very near each other to make exceptionally close bends.
Higher system productivity is said to be facilitated via optimised dynamics and process cycles. For instance, the wire-cutting and end-forming unit is fitted on a carriage having linear movement independent of the heads. This design contributes to an increase in productivity of approximately 30% in comparison with previous-generation systems.
The DH4010VGP makes use of existing VGP3D programming and control software, with a 3D graphic interface.
