One of the largest fishing vessel manufacturers in the world has chosen the quality of Memoli’s tube bending machines.
In December, the ACH 45 CNC tube bender was successfully delivered and commissioned at the customer’s site in Russia; although the requirement for the tube bender was simple, the anticipated operating conditions necessitated a considered solution.
The sub-zero temperatures at the customer’s site made it necessary to integrate an oil heating system into the machine.
This will allow the machine to start up without any problems during the winter months, when temperatures can drop below – 20 degrees Celsius.
The customer processes around 20 tonnes of pipe for week, most of which now passes through the new ACH 45 tube bending machine.
In this case, the tube bending machine processes three different tube sizes: 25.4 mm, 33.7 mm and 42.4 mm outside diameter.
The extremely small bending head is made of steel with a chain-driven transmission to ensure more space in the sub-bending head; in this way, the machine can bend in a single cycle even tubes with the most complex geometries.
With over 700 different products, each can be stored in the machine and loaded quickly and easily when needed.
All of ACH mandrel bending machines are equipped with MEMOLI interface – a 3D bending software, designed for tube bending applications. Extremely easy and intuitive, it allows you to program directly through the adjustment of LRA (length – rotation – angle). MEMOLI software is also compatible with a wide variety of CAD software programmes (Autocad, Inventor, Solid Works, Pro Engineer, Rinhoceros etc.).
