3-RUNNER: three jobs, one machine

The new BLM GROUP 3-RUNNER combines three different jobs – straightening, cutting and end-forming – in a single, all-electric system that runs form coil stock. . Extremely efficient on its own, the 3-RUNNER is also very flexible and can be perfectly integrated in larger production processes allowing further automation and simplifying logistics by eliminating intermediate steps and part rework. Production is 100% certified.

Ultra-powerful all-electric pipe bender starts operations at US shipbuilder

Unison has commissioned what is believed to be the largest all-electric tube bending machine ever produced, at Newport News Shipbuilding – supplier of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines to the US Navy.The machine is capable of generating over 265,000 lb-ft (360,000 Nm) of torque and can bend piping up to 8 inches NPS – with…

Second Unison all-electric bending machine for fast-growing tube fabrication specialist

One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of grab poles for public transport vehicles, Dealercast, has installed a second Unison all-electric CNC tube bending machine to expand manufacturing capacity at its Manchester plant.The order for the machine was placed during Unison’s open house event, when tube fabricators were able to tour the company’s design and manufacturing…

All-electric tube bending machine innovator appoints new US partner

The pioneer of all-electric tube bending machines, Unison Ltd of Scarborough UK, has appointed Innovative Tube Equipment Corp. (ITEC) as its new sales and service partner in the US. After more than a decade of operations in North America, Unison views ITEC – with its focus on tube fabrication and its long experience in providing…

Even more efficient with eight spindles

The Esslingen multi-spindle specialists supplement the MS22C series by an 8-spindle CNC production automatic lathe MS22C-8. The modular eight-spindle machine built on the multi-spindle modular system can also efficiently machine highly complex workpieces that would have driven the previous multi-spindle machines normally equipped with six spindles to their limits. The INDEX MS22C-8 CNC multi-spindle automatic lathe…

Maximum productivity with optimum flexibility

The INDEX MS40C multi-spindle automatic turning machine is suited for machining up to 40 mm in diameter. Customized configuration with up to 12 CNC cross-slides, Y-axes, synchronous spindles, and further options enables high-productivity machining of bars as well as chucked parts.  The INDEX MS40C is part of the successful MultiLine series that accommodates loading of bars…

Kennametal Announces Breakthrough KM4X100™ Spindle Connection

The spindle connection is the “handshake” — the interface between the machine tool´s spindle and toolholder. As such, this vital component has to provide the torque and bending load capacity compatible with the machine-tool´s operating specifications. But when machining high-strength materials like titanium and other alloys, cutting forces generate bending moments that will exceed the…

High accuracy in turning with flexible measuring technology

The machines with hydrostatic guide from Mönchengladbach can often be found where narrow tolerances are required even for materials that are difficult to machine and with heavy components – e.g. in the aviation industry or the manufacture of gearing components for wind power stations. The excellent stability and damping of the hydrostatic guide prove their…
