Free-form bending at STJI
By investing in a new bending technology, we now have a modern 6-axis free form bending machine. This allows us to bend asymmetrical profiles by rotating the complete bending head to the feed axis.
Further advantages of CNC or 3D bending compared to stretch bending are among others:
– Radii that merge into each other can be bent without transitions
– Changes of complicated bending geometries directly via CNC control possible
– With one tool set per profile a wide range of radii can be bent
– Due to continuous pushing of the material hardly any reduction of the wall thickness at the outer sheet
We are looking forward to your bending inquiry.
