I can import and recognise CAD files automatically. I can even import tubes with non-round sections. All in one environment, either in the office or on the machine.
Immediate verification of the match between theoretical and actual. Measuring the distance between the tube and the machine component. Measuring the amount of interference with other objects.
Full graphic part optimization. Eliminates waste. The operator is able to redraw the part and start the production without assistance of a set up person.
Export directly from VGP. Faster (1 min. vs. 3.5 min.) than from CAD. Export full 3D tube assemblies.
The VGP3D three-dimensional programming software makes the real difference:
it checks part feasibility, eliminating the risk of collisions which typically occur during the first practical test run
it calculates the real cycle time in advance, slashing the time needed to write quotes
it automatically generates the machine cycle

With the VGP3D you have one machine program for both bending and forming.
This provides you with a complete production cycle time for estimating or production planning.
What is more, you can view all operations in simulation mode to check feasibility and optimize the process.
All from one single control point.
It takes just a moment to start production: import a file directly from 3D CAD or input the tube geometric data. The VGP3D software automatically creates a ready to run part program.
All setup parameters are saved with the part program. No mechanical adjustments mean maximum repeatability of the parts during bending operations. Furthermore, tube forming is measured in real time to guarantee part repeatability without wasted time or efficiency.
Electric axes control all machine movements (clamping, forming and force modulation) for accurate tolerances and maximum repeatability.
All setup parameters are saved with the part program.
Simplified wiring and the elimination of hydraulics reduces the need for maintenance and risks related to component wear. The obvious advantage is that the machine is safer and more reliable.
"All-Electric" technology means quiet and clean machines that proved major energy savings.
Anything is feasible with 4-RUNNER. Exploiting its potential to the highest level is very simple.
The 4-RUNNER is offered in two different versions,
just choose the one more adapted to the tube and product you wish to produce.
No intermediate steps. No separate set ups for subsequent process. No work in process inventory.
The entire production controlled in the background.
Across all shifts because everything is performed on one machine.
No expertise needed to run the system.
The 4-RUNNER can be configured and used with a variety of modules. You can use it for a single function / process or as a complete combined production process (from feeding to unloading cut, bent and end-formed parts). This modular system can be built according to your needs or added to over time.
