Automotive industry

The processing of automobile tubular parts(like exhaust pipes, fuel brake pipes, air conditioning refrigeration pipes, mufflers, seat frames, headrests, hood pillars, door lock levers, etc ) requires a pipe bending machine and a tube end forming machine.

Hippo Machinery provides fully automatic pipe benders and automated end forming machine production lines to help you achieve competitive advantage in your production. Our pipe bending machine has high bending efficiency, good bending repeat accuracy and stable performance. Our tube end forming machine has reasonable structure and simple operation, which has been widely recognized by customers.

Project 1-Headrest bending

The main function of a car headrest is to increase safety. The headrest of the car seat can effectively protect the head and neck of the driver and occupants in the car at the moment of a traffic accident, especially when the car is rear-end so that they can be injured as little as possible. Early cars did not have headrests. As people pay more and more attention to car safety, car headrests have gradually become popular in cars as safety devices. The relevant national mandatory standards have strict regulations on the material, strength, energy absorption, location, and size of the car headrest.

The car headrest tube diameter is small, generally, 10-12mm, and the bending radius is also small, but the requirements for accuracy are very high.

Hippo left and right pipe bending machine is specially designed to bend the headrest. This machine has no clamping device, no assist pushing device, the structure is simple. It can be bent to the left or to the right, solving the problem of interference of one-way bent. Very flexible and the processing speed is also faster than the single-head CNC pipe bending machine.


Project 2-Anti-submarine seat tube bending

The purpose of the anti-submergence protection system (ASPS) is to prevent the vehicle occupants from sliding forward when the vehicle brakes suddenly. But the most important function of ASPS is that when the vehicle is subjected to a frontal impact, with the use of a seat belt, the person is restricted to the seat without sliding forward, which can reduce the greater injury caused by the human body sliding forward. . This system cooperates with seat belts and auxiliary airbags to achieve complementary effects. There are many particulars about anti-dive design. For example, the angle should not be too large, which will affect the ride comfort; the angle should not be too small, too small will not play the role of anti-diving.
