Introduction

The WA series aluminum tube bender automates the production of serpentine-shaped tubes used in heat exchangers, condensers, evaporators, and other HVAC equipment. This machine bends multiple tubes simultaneously via programmed servo motions to create coiled. Snaking bends with consistency and efficiency, surpassing manual methods.


Unlike slow manual operation, the WA accurately bends batches of 10-12 aluminum tubes at once by clamping, positioning, and bending the grouped tubes using precise electric servomotors. This automated multi-tube handling is the key to boosted throughput.


The bending process specifically involves:

     1. Automatic loading of aluminum tube groups from linear feeders

     2. In-line straightening if coil curvature exceeds limits

     3. Indexing the batches for sequential bending

     4. Making progressive G- and U-bends through the 180o bending arc

     5. Cutting bent tubes to length for the next production step


By orchestrating the sequence of advanced powered mechanisms that maneuver, feed, straighten, and bend the tubes, the WA series eliminates the variability and pace of human tube bending to increase productivity reliably. This allows manufacturers to cost-optimize their serpentine tube fabrication for mass production scale.


The integrated software and programmable servo-electric architecture also make it straightforward to adjust bend specs or develop new bending patterns when customer designs change.

Features

Advanced Servo Bend Technology

The WA bender utilizes closed-loop controlled servo bend technology to manipulate tube orientation and achieve precise bend angles within 0.1-degree accuracy. The electric servomotors, driving screw rods, and guide rails allow programmable, repeatable movement to execute different plane bends. (Patent No.: ZL 2011 1 0092227. X)


Customized Bend Tooling

Patented bend tooling specially engineered for aluminum adapts to various tube dimensions. The rounded groove profiles with adjustable pressure dies facilitate tight bending radii down to R35mm without material deformation, wrinkling, or surface marring. (Patent No.: ZL 2011 2 0107426.9)


Simultaneous Multi-Tube Bending

A centerpiece rotating clamp patented structure provides stability for concurrently bending up to 12 grouped tubes in one sequence. Pneumatic clamps lock the batch in place as it indexes between bend steps maximizing productivity over single tube units. (Patent No.: ZL 2009 2 0013741.8)


Integrated Control Architecture

Proprietary HMI menus, high torque servomotors, and PLCs coordinate the straightening, feeding, clamping, rotating, and bend sequencing for fully automated, unattended functioning with minimal scrap. Force feedback enables real-time self-adjustments.


Synchronized Tube Feed System

Pairing the bender with the tube-cutting machine allows automatic in-line straightening and length cutting prior to bending. Buffer storage feeds tubes on-demand, eliminating bottlenecks.


Ruggedized Modular Construction

The bender enclosure features reinforced steel framing, precision machined guides, and powder coating. Polycarbonate machine guarding enhances safety while allowing visibility. The layout optimizes material flow and access which maximizes longevity in 24/7 production environments.
