Here are some NC pipe bending machine related questions you may have in mind and their answers in regard.
1. What is NC Tube Bender？
An NC tube bender, also known as a Numerical Control pipe bending machine is a semi-automatic machine. It can also be referred to as a computer-controlled pipe bending machine as it is operated using a conventional computer program.
The program consists of data presented in the form of numbers, symbols, and letters. This data is comprehended by the NC pipe bending machine to perform certain types and angles of bends.
The machine allows you to bend a wide range of materials for various applications with higher accuracy and offer incredible bending results at any angle while putting in the least effort.
2. How to operate NC pipe bending machine？
An NC pipe bending machine is rather easier to maneuver and control as compared to any other manually operated machine. With a touch screen interface, you can use a set of instructions i.e. types, number, and degree of bends in the pipe.
The NC pipe bending machine follows a set of steps for creating the accurate and effective bends devoid of any bending errors. Here is the precise order of steps an NC pipe bending machine follows for the operation:
- The pipe to be bent is loaded into the machine by an operator.
- The operator adds information regarding the angle and nature of the bends.
- The pipe is clamped, bent, and removed by the machine.
- The machine stops running to wait for the removal of bent pipe and further operation either for a new pipe or a second bend on the similar one.
- For a new set of operations, you can reset the information and make a fresh start or make more bends with the already added data for several pipes.
3. Should I Choose an NC pipe bending machine or CNC Tube Bender?
NC tube bending machine clamping, bending, and releasing step is the same as a CNC tube bender, but it doesn’t reposition itself, you have to the manual repositioning after one bend is completed. The CNC tube bending machine can automatically move the tube to the next position and can rotate the angle to any degree, so if you desire to produce numerous bends automatically with restricted operator contribution you can opt for a CNC bender.
And a CNC tube bender program can save more data and is more accurate as compared to an NC program, it requires the least operator involvement, you don’t require a huge staff to control the machine.
If you can’t decide which tube bending machine is ideal for your bending operations, you can refer to the below comparison chart HIPPO made for the NC pipe bending machine VS CNC tube bender.
You should consider the below factors to make a better choice:
- Number of bends per part
If your bending operations require only single-bend parts, a semi-automatic machine will work perfectly for you. It is enough as it can make swift and accurate single bends just like a CNC pipe bender.
But if you intend to have multiple bends in a tube, a CNC tube bender is capable of delivering incredible repeatability with exclusive performance and the least worker involvement.
- Production volume
If you are working with small-scale bending operations, which doesn’t require many bends a CNC tube bending machine will be too much for it. If you have mass production bending operations, you can opt for a CNC tube bending machine for more continuous performance
- Your business’ future
With ongoing advancements in technology, bending operations and applications are also subjected to modifications. A CNC bender machine with less operator involvement would be the best possibility. NC tube bending machines can also do the same job but require more time and operator involvement.
If you foresee an increase in demand for your business, you can choose a fully automatic CNC tube bending machine.
