SMM 2018: Fast tool change and highest flexibility
Posted by Andreas Winkler on July 23rd, 2018
The t-bend bending machines from transfluid are an efficient alternative to welding in large tubes, capable of high-performance processing of tubes with a diameter of up to 400mm. This reduces the manufacturing costs and offers time savings of up to 60%. In addition to that, it is possible to weld flanges to the straight tube before the bending process. The "t project" bending software will process the isometry though the connection to the corresponding CAD programs. This way transfluid creates greater flexibility, which, combined with the extremely short tool change time below 20 minutes, means efficiency improvement in tube manufacturing.
The mobile "t project draft" for tablets allows for greater freedom when acquiring data on-site.
With a light, portable measuring system it is possible to record data for template pipes, for instance, as well as the process geometry, the flanges and the position of the flanges. A measurement on board will only take a few minutes, even for complex tubes with flanges. The data transfer then occurs online, for instance via a WLAN, and the production can carry on, whilst more tube geometries are recorded on board the ship. SMM 2018, hall B2.3G, stand 324

transfluid Maschinenbau GmbH - the solution for tubes
transfluid is sought after worldwide as a partner for manufacturing tube bending machines and tube processing machines. Since 1988 transfluid has been further developing its technologies for tube machining, so that it can provide customer-oriented, tailor-made solutions - for plant and machine construction, the automotive and energy industries,
shipbuilding and medical device manufacturing.
transfluid's product portfolio offers perfect solutions in five different machine categories, that meet all the requirements in tube processing. t bend stands for a wide range of tube bending machines, which fulfil the highest demands in terms of industrial applications. The tube forming machines in the t form range offer the perfect tube shaping solutions. Tube forming is important as an individual or supplementary process, in order to obtain optimally tailored tubes. Automation systems are offered as fully developed concepts for bending and forming technology, under t motion. t cut covers the field of tube cutting machines. Here, transfluid is able to provide a range of different systems, for example for chipless orbital cutting and special knive separation processes. The category t clean encompasses tube cleaning machines. These ensure the cleanliness of workpieces and tubes. Additionally, with the new tu go range, transfluid offers a standardised portfolio of machinery, which is available from stock for immediate delivery. transfluid offers the powerful software t project for rapid and reliable tube processing. It can be used as an effective online solution for bending machines and the majority of CAD systems.
