t-bend bending machines for hose fittings the Schmallenberger mechanical engineering company transfluid brings two new bending machines specially designed for the manufacture of hose fittings on the market. The two new systems of t-bend series are characterised by particularly economical and differ primarily by the sizes to be processed and the loading systems: 1) t-bend Armaturenbieger fittings for diameter of 8 mm to 1 inch 2) t ceremony Armaturenbieger for internal diameter of 1 inch up to 75 mm interview with Benedikt Hummler the trans fluid Managing Director and head of design and production to the new systems editorial: why hose fittings? What attracts you to this product as a machine manufacturer? Benedikt Hummler: All-in-one hose fittings are a special challenge in bending technology. These parts are usually mechanically processed, are very short, relatively thick-walled and may be damaged by no means on the sealing elements, such as the sealing head or the part of the hose. Editorial: What’s your solution? Benedikt Hummler: We have developed two systems of transfluid, that meet all the above requirements and that these fittings in large numbers are extremely economically bent. Editorial: What characterizes the new bending machines for hose fittings? Benedikt Hummler: The t-bend Armaturenbieger for diameters from 8 mm to 1 inch is equipped with a bulk magazine.

This magazine has a loading volume of 600 litres, regardless of the size of the fitting. These plants completely processed the parts in a cycle time of 3.5 to 4 seconds, including the entire handling. The fittings can be bent with an internal mandrel. This ensures that there is no ovality of the arches. Special elements ensure that the sealing Cone and tube parts are not damaged. Editorial: And what is faucets with larger diameters? Benedikt Hummler: Larger Components with a diameter of 75 millimetres are transported with a different loading system. The weight of these faucets, it must be ensured that the parts are not tampered with. Therefore these workpieces on a special pallet are made available, taken over by the handling system and conveyed to the bending machine.

Because with an interior PIN is bent, an ovality can be ensure by no more than 3 percent. Especially in case of large components provide special facilities ensure that the seals are not damaged; Keyword SAE flange, et cetera. The complete processing time for fitting this size is no more than 7 seconds. Editorial: What is your conclusion? Benedikt Hummler: The two new systems of our series t-bend work uncompromisingly good. We succeeded on the characteristics of the single-hose fittings during the bending process to enter and to ensure the maximum efficiency of production.
