  • Since 1948 customisation has been our strong point. We offer all our clients a unique product, built and tailored to fit their needs like a custom-made suit.

    In addition to tube bending and end forming machines, we integrate robots; drilling, cutting and shearing benches; optical measurement and viewing systems; loading and unloading systems; and automated handling systems built especially for each product. We are able to design and develop special machines for sector-specific processes. If high production volumes are required, we create actual production transfer systems, able to guarantee the best cycle times with the highest reliability and repeatability.

    For over 70 years, the company has been internationally recognized as a leader in this field, distinguishing itself for the high quality, productivity and level of innovation of its machines and solutions.

  • 150LE: the "Linear" philosophy applied to large diameters

    Tube bending machine 150LE

    Compact and versatile, the 150LE is a tube bending machine that can satisfy most of the production demands received from the market, which normally do not include additional processes in the cycle (such as cutting, for example), nor the completion of extremely complex geometries that require several bending planes. This machine is designed to be extended, with or without a recovery cycle, and it can be easily integrated with devices for automatic loading and unloading of the bent tube. Multistack and multiradius, it is able to bend up to two 150mm planes, or up to three 100mm planes also with thrust bending. It is also equipped with a direct transmission 75000N booster. The machine can also produce bends with CLR/DIA ratio even lower than 0,8. All movements flow through a recirculating roller guides and high load thrust screws are positioned behind clamping elements, a solution that increases machine rigidity and precision. Moreover, the bending head pneumatic support system guarantees energy savings and higher efficiency. The 9 controlled axes that govern the machine movements are driven by absolute digital motors with “Full Electric” technology managed by CNC Siemens 840D sl. The operator can interact intuitively with the machine using the UII “User Iso Interface” three-dimensional graphic software on a 19” LCD touch screen. The UII “User Iso Interface” also facilitates programming and allows the operator to simulate and optimise bending programs. This model is also designed to be integrated into “Smart Factory” work systems.

  • COILBENDER. We reinvented tube bending process starting from coil


    A new interpretation of the coil bending process: a quick, efficient and compact solution for bending a tube with the mandrel, starting directly from the coil. COILBENDER integrates these features into one system: 

    • a motorized reel with tube tension control;
    • a horizontal and vertical straightening system with roller drive of the tube directly from the reel an orbital cutting system with a wheel and pneumatic tear;
    • a latest generation “Full Electric” reverse tube bending machine, right and left bends in cycle with mandrel up to 25mm in diameter and relative numerical control loading system;
    • an electric endforming machine with 5Ton deforming power and 2 CNC axes and sideways collapsing movement;
    • an integrated unloading system for the processed tube;
    • an effective, compact integrated unloading solution.

    ?The machine is driven by a single CNC Siemens 840D sl accessible from a single console. The simplified UII interface software installed on the machine allows for simulation and optimization of bending programs. This machine is designed to be integrated into “Smart Factory” production systems.
