Schwarze-Robitec offers a new machine control for CNC pipe bending machines, designed to help reduce auxiliary process time. The company has broken down the bending process and arranged each step synchronously.
According to the manufacturer, the control prepares the respectively next working step during execution of the current process. For example, while the tube is being fed to the tool, the clamping functions close almost fully, making the tool ready for the next bending step when the tube reaches its target position.
The software finds the optimal parameters for the respective bending order to help reduce cycle time. Menu navigation and structure are designed to help simplify workflow. The integrated diagnostic and maintenance tool guides the operator through all settings and checks all data for validity.
