Panels are the most typical parts of bent products. Product profile can vary from simple square angle one bend tray to complex lighting fixtures with several variable bends up and down or big radius in series to form flanges on those etc. They can be used as door leaves for door assembly, ceiling tiles, in steel furniture as sides or shelves and in many equipment as casing sides and tops to give the product final outlook and protection.
Typical products for the PivaBend Bending Center:
Shop fitting, office and kitchen furniture, steel doors, fascade cladding, electrical cabinets, telecommunication distribution cabinets, lighting fixtures, lockers, shelves, furnaces and air handlers.The challenge is to bend panels made of different materials and sheet thicknesses both in big batches and on one-off basis. When producing panels in large series, some manual set ups are accepted. However, when producing all panels of the end product subsequently, no manual set ups may exist.Typical reasons for developing bending processes are growing capacity needs, cost efficiency in production and quality requirements with strict tolerances.Starting point is also the use of several press brakes, panel benders or forming presses in manufacturing which all require operators to attend the machine, handle material, position work pieces and unload the parts by hand and more efficiency is required.
