AMOB has a new customer in the world’s largest livestock equipment manufacturer in the world! The order of a CH-80-CNC mandrel pipe bender was successfully delivered and commissioned at the customer’s site, in Romania, in September – and though the tube bending requirement was straightforward, the intended operating conditions meant that a considered solution was needed.
The sub-zero temperatures of the client’s premises meant that an oil heating system needed to be integrated within the machine – alongside the standard oil cooling system. This, in the 80mm capacity, fully-CNC tube bender, means that the machine will start up trouble-free in the winter months – when temperatures can drop to below minus 38 degrees celsius.
The customer processes around 24 tons of tube per week, with the vast majority now passing through the new 80mm x 3.5mm capacity machine. In this instance, the tube bender manipulates three different sizes – 25.4mm, 33.7mm and 60.3mm OD – to enable them to make a variety of equipment for distribution worldwide. With over 500 different products, each one can be stored in the machine and loaded quickly and easily when required.
Another exciting project for AMOB!
