Pipe forming and bending technology for mobile hydraulics
transfluid develops high-tech solutions for the production of highly dynamically-loaded pipes
In the field of mobile construction machines, custom-fit pipes and reliable connections are much in demand for the safe use of hydraulic drives which are placed under extreme loads. transfluid’s specialists in pipe processing systems have designed special mobile bending machines and compact bending machines for this purpose. High-performance CNC pipe bending machines, like the mandrel bending machine, DB 642 3A-CNC, enable the effective bending of even thick-walled pipes. And rolling pipe-forming machines, such as model UMR, ensure diverse shaping options, in particular for the manufacture of hydraulic connection systems, such as 37° or 90° raised flanges for flat-sealing O-Ring connections (e.g. ORFS).
The fully automatic mandrel bending machine, DB 642 3A-CNC (6 - 42 mm diameter), is suitable both for the production of individual hydraulic pipes, as well as for a serial operation. It offers extremely quick set-up times and direct online-connectivity to all CAD systems. The machine control is capable of processing 3D data directly in almost all formats. The simple operation takes place via a freely-programmable CNC touch panel control. The very quick set-up times ensure particular flexibility in production. And these machines are also capable of processing pipes, already formed on both sides, as well as pipes on to which SAE collars have been welded, prior to the bending procedure.
If pipes are to be measured on the object and no usable digital data is available for this purpose, transfluid has created a solution, whereby simple isometry software can be used by means of a tablet. It enables the pipes to be measured on site and this information to be sent directly to the machine online. All data are recorded, saved and are therefore available at any time. As a result of this, long costly methods are no longer required.
Small, strong and mobile
Diverse and with simple, yet effective technology, the transfluid mobile bending machine, MB 642, offers excellent technical opportunities for the bending application to be carried out directly at the object. With this system, hydraulic lines can be laid efficiently on site. A saw, as well as an internal and external deburrer are also available as optional equipment. Furthermore, the MB 642 can be equipped with an assembly device for all common connection systems (cutting ring-fittings and flanged-screw fittings) as well as metal circular saws.
Rolling forming technology for optimal sealing surfaces
For the manufacture of hydraulic connection systems, the production of 37° and 90° flanges with short span lengths is also partially in demand. For this purpose, the solution finders at transfluid have developed the UMR model rolling forming machines. These enable the production of flanges up to 90° in a single operation and with optimal sealing surfaces.
Therefore with its high-tech diversity in tackling different challenges in pipe processing within the field of mobile hydraulics, transfluid always ensures an appropriate, individual solution. And the company will also present this at bauma 2016 (Hall C3.344 / Stand FN826/2).
