One of the biggest shipbuilder in the world has chosen AMOB as the supplier of three fully-CNC pipe benders to replace their current tube bending production cell.

The implementation of the three new machines will bring the customer to the forefront of manufacturing capabilities within their market sector.

The three CNC pipe and tube benders – the CH60CNC, CH120CNC and CH220CNC – give the customer more throughput and more capacity, therefore reducing lead times and increasing manufacturing abilities. In early 2017, the customer became conscious that their tube bending manufacturing cell was the biggest bottle neck in the process, and therefore needed modernising. The two older machines were creating lots of downtime, and the tooling was starting to have a detrimental effect on the quality of work.

Being the strongest supplier, AMOB were duly selected – quoting a turnkey package and the shortest lead time. Three machines and 70 sets of tooling were chosen to replace the old cell, not only improving the solution but also bettering it. With additional capacity and the new machine to increase throughput, the customer was able to eliminate the manufacturing bottle neck and improve quality of product.

Not only did they want to replace the old, outdated machine but they also wanted to bring the manufacturing cell into the 21st century. All AMOB CNC pipe benders offer this, as they are all technologically advanced and can be connected to different departments remotely. The client’s design and production departments can remotely access the machine to upload production drawings, access bend programs and have full control of the machine. The production department can access information such as production count, product cycle time, working time and downtime, as well as accessing and assessing any warning indicators.

The three fully-CNC tube bending machines were successfully installed and commissioned along with a week’s training package in early 2018. Training was completed by both factory and local service engineers and the customer was able to launch full production across all three machines less than a week after delivery. The customer was extremely happy with the way AMOB handled the project life cycle and the additional turnkey package that was supplied. If your company has a large tube bending cell overhaul requirement, then look no further than AMOB!
