Number of axes:
Winton Machine’s RD30 CNC tube bender is a PLC controlled 3 axis CNC tube & pipe bender able to make mandrel bends. Built in the US, operation of this CNC tube bender is easy. To get started, you program the distance between bends, the plane rotation between bends, and the bend angles. Load a tube, press a button and production begins. It’s that simple. All 3 axis of motion are closed loop feedback providing excellent repeatability.
To keep the programming of new bent tubular parts to a minimum, the tube bender can be linked direct to engineering. An optional Windows PC interface for programming the CNC tube bender can read in a CAD generated STEP file of a bent tube. That means you can go from a solid model to a bent tube in seconds. This helps cut down on programming time and data entry errors. Therefore, there is never a need to type into the controller the tube’s LRA or XYZ data points. The CNC tube bender’s controller can read a STEP file and extract the LRA (YBC) bend data, and the centerline radius. This saves programming time and makes your life easier. Tube bending should be easy. The Winton RD30 eCNC tube & pipe bender makes it that way.
