First-of-its-kind automated bender for fabrication
Up to 8X faster than traditional bending.
With agility and speed, the shoe carousel bends 1/2" to 4" conduit EMT, IMC, Rigid, Aluminum-Rigid and Stainless Steel. The carousel automatically rotates to the appropriate show group and position with no manual effort required for the changeover.
AutoBend 3D can complete a variety of bends with no rework or scrap: 90 degree, stub/kick, offset, 3-bend saddle, 4-bend saddle, U-bend, concentric, sequential and 3-D bend.
Robotic Positioning - The chuck grabs the conduit from the loading v-blocks with the required force to accommodate each size and type of conduit. The carousel rotates while the chuck aligns the conduit to the shoe grove and support.
Load a piece of conduit in the v-blocks and the AutoBend 3D will then calibrate and position the conduit using an embedded laser sensor.
Smart Sensor helps increase safety while bending through a two-zone alert system to protect workers
The AutoBend 3D has nine emergency stop switches located at all corners of the machine as well as on the Human Machine Interface (HMI) for quick and easy access if necessary.
