PRESENTING UNISON’S TUBE BENDING INNOVATIONS AT FABTECH 2023
Unison Tube LLC, the North American division of UK-based Unison Ltd, will present a number of innovative tube manipulation technologies at FABTECH – North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event. Unison machines on show at FABTECH will include an all-electric Unison Breeze 100 mm (maximum tube diameter) multi-stack tube bender and one of the company’s manually operated, CNC-controlled EvBend 1000 models.
The all-electric Unison Breeze 100 mm machine
Unison Ltd invented ultra-precise, all-electric tube and pipe bending, and the Breeze 100 mm machine is one of the company’s flagship models. Like all Unison Breeze tube bending machines, the 100 mm Breeze offers rapid setup, fast tooling changes, exceptional power, rigid mechanical design, and all-electric control for right-first-time repeat sub-contract work, or immediately after producing a single trial part. These are all attributes that Unison Ltd believes make its Breeze models the ultimate tube manipulation machines for businesses specializing in small batch production runs. Equipped with Unison’s recently upgraded Unibend software, all-electric Breeze machines also offer cycle time speed improvements in the region of 25% compared to earlier models and incorporate new teach routine and simulation features.
The Unison EvBend range
Unison’s EvBend 1000 is a high-precision 3-axis machine that was developed to reduce the entry cost to precision rotary draw tube bending. The machine combines manually operated feed, tube rotation and bending force, with CNC-controlled braking on the carriage feed, rotation and bend arm axes. Typically used for low-volume, high-accuracy production and prototyping, Unison EvBend machines provide accurate multi-plane bending at a much lower cost than many CNC benders. Two models are currently available – the EvBend 1000 for bending tube of up to 16 mm in diameter, and the EvBend 2000, a machine featuring power-assisted operation and capable of bending tube of up to 50 mm in diameter. The EvBend CNC control includes a PC-based 15” touchscreen and is capable of processing up to 100 bends per component. Unison EvBend machines are widely used across the aerospace and motorsport sectors for bending precision components.
“FABTECH 2022 was an incredibly successful event for us,” comments Unison Tube LLC’s Vice President, Stuart Singleton. “With that in mind, we are looking forward to attending this year’s event with a larger booth and an even more exciting line up of tube bending machines.
