The BLM SMART BENDING MACHINE provides a very powerful and adaptive system in a compact layout. Working with tubing up to 1.125" (28MM) the system is integrated with  loading-unloading capabilities which enable automated non-stop operation. Capable of both right-hand and left-hand bending. Stack tooling provides multiple radius capability. Bend tube, wire or hybrid tubes (with flanges, end-forms etc.).

The SMART is particularly well suited for bending complicated shapes and multiple radii tubes used in the automotive, air conditioning, heating and refrigeration industries. The all-electric axis control gives the ability to produce tight bend radii, even less than 1D, and to produce complex shapes with multiple radii or for pre-assembled tubes with flanges, end forms or fittings. The CNC tube bender SMART is a machine capable of running without a dedicated operator.

 

  • Tube bending machines for tubes up to 28 mm in diameter
  • All-Electric operation for low maintenance and high reliability
  • Right-hand and left-hand bending
  • Stack tooling provides multiple radius capability
  • Bend tube, wire or hybrid tubes (with flanges, end-forms etc.)
  • Bend complicated shapes and multiple radii tubes common in the automotive, air conditioning, heating and refrigeration industries
  • Detect holes, slot, beads, and weld seams
  • Optional Pierce Tool for in-line pierce/drill operation
  • Integrated loading/unloading
  • Advanced CNC control and software ensure the first part made to specification and following parts are repeatable
  • Integrate into complete production processes to optimize production and eliminate intermediate process steps
