hat’s just about the limit: transfluid® develops one of the worldwide strongest cold tube bending machines

There is always a solution, also for the biggest challenges. transfluid® Maschinenbau GmbH proved this with the development and manufacturing a tube bending machine of the superlatives. This allows the fully automatic bending of highly alloyed steel tubes up to 300 mm external diameter and with wall thickness up to 30 mm. This solution is asked for pipes in the USA. In Houston, Texas it will be used for manufacturing pipes for Offshore, shipbuilding and for the chemical industry.

For her trip in the USA the 80-tonnes-, 12-metres-long and 3-metre-wide colossus was disassembled in several segments. „Out of our knowledge a cold tube bending machine of this size and in particular this wall thickness was never built worldwide. This makes this project with a whole volume of more than 1 million US dollars unique in the area of the international tube bending technology“, Ludger Bludau, managing director and company founder of transfluid® points out. Within six weeks the german experts realised the special bending machine according to customer requirements.

Impressive forces are at work with the cold bending of the pipes up to 300 mm of diameter. „A hydraulic drive generates for this a torque of several million newton metres“, explains Benedikt Hümmler, managing director transfluid® . An effective CNC control which makes the fully automatic bending of the tubes possible provides for optimum and efficient manufacturing processes.

The Global player transfluid® has placed special value on an economic solution also with the special change system of the bending tools. For the unusual tool dimensions from up to 2 metres of diameter and 5 tonnes each the actual tool changing time is less than 30 minutes. „At the negotiations carried out by us in the USA we advice our customer regarding to his individual requirements, also in view of the economic efficiency, and implement this accordingly“, says Gerd Nöker, managing director and company founder of transfluid®.

Compared to the welding process the bending of tubes offers an alternative which disposes of unique advantages – not only for the big tube range. With the t bend technology the worldwide leading manufacturer of tube bending and tube end forming machines offers according to own information solutions which lower the production costs clearly and create a time saving from up to 60%. Users at national and international markets profit from it. „Bending technologies, fully automatic manufacturing systems and plug and “play solutions” from transfluid® which find her use also in the car industry or the machinery and plant engineering are in demand. With this impressive cold tube bending machine we have pointed once more what is possible“, according to Mr. Nöker. For transfluid® the course for 2011 is set. Looking forward to new challenges and taking a further expansion of the company clearly in the eye.

transfluid® Maschinenbau GmbH – the solution for tubes

Since 1988 transfluid® continually improved technologies in tube processing to meet customers’ demands, offering optimum, tailor-made solutions in machine and plant construction, that are used in the automobile, ship building and furniture industries as well as the construction of railings and conveyor technology.
