AMOB UK recently completed installation and training on an exciting new mandrel bender application!
A world leading engineering company combining innovative design with traditional engineering skills.
After the recent two-stage FAT (factory acceptance testing) was completed, including both virtual and also in-person visits to Portugal, the next stages of delivery (commissioning and training) could proceed.
As a group, AMOB is very proud to have adapted swiftly in the past two years. Having faced the challenges around the globe with traditional factory acceptance testing, it was necessary to offer alternatives in the virtual world. Because of this, and for the foreseeable future, AMOB UK are continuing to offer these options.
This project enables our new business partners to bend motorcycle subframes from round tube. This is quite a common application of AMOB bending machines. However, the same seven-stack machine is designed to bend flat bar with in-cycle bending, punching, and shearing operations inbuilt. This additional flat bar operation is specifically designed for fabricating the rib cages of crash test dummies. Certainly a rarer application!
We are extremely eager to work closely with our newest clients for many years to come, and also to see their company and profits grow in partnership with their AMOB machinery!
LEVELS OF AUTOMATION IN AMOB MANDREL BENDERS:
Ø CN1 models control only the bend angle of the tube via NC automation. Operators of this machine are required to rotate and position the tube between bends, if necessary.
Ø CN2 models include NC bend angle operation and NC tube rotation. Operators of these machines are only required to position the tube between bends, if necessary.
Ø CN3 models include NC bend angle operation, NC tube rotation and NC positioning of the tube. Operators of these machines can run all steps from the control panel to produce a complete multi-bend part.
Ø CNC models include CNC bend angle operation, CNC tube rotation and CNC positioning of the tube. Operators of these machines run all steps with the press of a button to produce a complete multi-bend part, with the advantage of many more CNC features.
