MDH-80-CN2 Mandrel Bending Machine – Customer Case Study
Wherever possible, AMOB prefers to let their machines do the talking for us! But what could be better than that? Letting a satisfied customer do the talking!
Lawrence Lasers have had their machine for just over 18 months now. During this time, they have worked closely alongside AMOB UK aftercare to guarantee the quality of the product they manufacture. In the video below, Elliot Lawrence explains their origins, history, and their acquisition of an AMOB bending machine. Elliot also discusses his experience working together with AMOB UK in the weeks and months following their investment.
Like many customers, Lawrence Lasers had previously established a thriving business in other metalworking sectors. However, after receiving enquiries for multiple bend parts that could only be fabricated with the assistance of a mandrel bender, it was time to consider a fresh investment.
Following order confirmation from Lawrence Lasers, AMOB manufactured and shipped the MDH-80-CN2 and several full sets of tooling quickly. Within just eight weeks, the machine was commissioned into the workshop, and one day later training began.
Elliot predicts that this machine will open a whole world of new clients. We can only agree that the benefits of owning a metal forming solution from AMOB will bring avenues of business that will build your business from strength to strength.
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.
This video is the beginning of a gearing up in AMOB UK’s commitment to sharing more stories of its customers. At their very core, these videos symbolise a key value in AMOB UK’s principles. To work together to create something for the benefit of everyone involved. In this instance, we are thrilled to share the expertise of Lawrence Lasers to the world. As only a small part of their story, AMOB UK are committed to our part in ensuring their future success. We hope this will be for many years to come.
