Decoiler with dancer roll for the tube cutting machine RTO 628 for chipless tube cutting. “We wanted to offer the visitors the opportunity to view our technologies comfortably and from many perspectives. The VR solution was of course a clear choice and many were quite impressed with it. In the meantime the viewing options here are very comfortable and very easily applied as a means to convey the various purposes of our machines. There were quite a few exciting discussions and the trade show was especially successful for us this year”, sums up Stefanie Flaeper, CEO at transfluid. VR insights into chipless tube cutting ... The transfluid VR app provided the capability to experience four machines in operation in a virtual workshop, such as the t cut RTO 628 chipless orbital cutting system. It makes extremely precise and clean cutting results possible - with cutting quantities of up to 1,600 units / hour. The tubes can be further processed immediately, such as by implementing forming at the cutting surface directly. And because the tubes are stress-strained during cutting at different torques depending on the size, the cutting point is protected from collapsing. With 3D glasses, the guests were given the ability to view two mandrel bending machines in operation at the same time at the transfluid trade show booth. As a right-hand / left-hand bending machine, the t bend DB 622 CNC R/L provides a greater amount of freedom, even if the existing space is tight, and it solves the implementation of even the most complex geometries. In the process, it is ideally suitable for processing smaller tubes of up to 22 mm diameter, while having the capability to quickly change the bending direction. This is performed in less than two seconds. Bending is occurs using two bending heads. A standing variant bends towards the right and a suspended bending head bends towards the left. The second mandrel bending machine that was presented digitally was a t bend DB 2090 CNC VE. This fully automatic solution bends round and square tubes with a diameter of between 20 and 90 mm at an impressive repetition accuracy and quality. The system also makes it possible to free form large bending radii. . … up to combined forming and mandrel bending The combination machine REB 632/SRM 622 CNC ensures twice the number of forming options. What was already quite impressive during the virtual presentation in Chicago ensures in practical operations that the benefits of the rolling and axial tube forming can be taken advantage of together. This allows a compressed geometry to be re-rolled, for example, or to perform a cut prior to the axial tube forming. Tool changes are quickly implemented. The transfluid mandrel bending machine DB 2090 CNC VE bends tubes with a diameter of between 20 to 90 mm fully automatically. TUBE NEWS EVENTS December 2017 25
