Tube bending machine installation at Ricor Group
A tube bending recent installation at Ricor Group is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate the superiority of fully electric technology in tube and pipe bending machinery.
The advantages of an eMOB mandrel bender are vast and include benefits key to any efficient operation such as energy saving, waste reduction, and increased accuracy and productivity through cycle optimisation.
RICOR are an established manufacturer of metal pressings and welded assemblies and have 40 years of experience in the industry. Based in Studley, RICOR asked AMOB to install a fully electric tube bender with automated production cell for a notable project.
RICOR approached AMOB with detailed requirements for their contract making fuel cell cradles for the hybrid car sector, and with the need to produce 4.5 million parts over 7 years, AMOB were able to reduce bend-time on all parts, up to 9 seconds faster than required.
The fully electric multi stack CNC bending machine was designed, commissioned, delivered, and installed within 5 weeks, including an impressive automated loading and unloading cell, complete with weld seam detection and adjustment capability to ensure maximum accuracy & repeatability on all parts over the machines lifetime.
The future of cars lies in electric technology, & so does the future of bending.
