The pressure to reduce manufacturing costs, the need to meet increasingly difficult challenges (tight radii, thin wall materials, complex shapes to fit in small spaces etc.), uptime requirements, the demands for defect free production: these are the principles underlying our product development.
Solutions span from standalone bending systems to fully integrated production processes.
Todays exhaust systems have increasingly more contorted, close bend patterns, very tight radii and expensive materials. There is tremendous pressure to keep part costs down. Production must run non-stop, 24/7. This means a system must operate at close to 100% availability.
Depending on the specific requirements BLM GROUP can offer a variety of different, dedicated solutions, each capitalising on decades of experience in the automotive industry.
- Restrictive technological parameters
Having the capability of fitting up to eight tool sets and controlling and adjusting the position and force of each electric axis means that the demands of this industry can met.
- Minimise scrap
Raw material is expensive. Adding a ‘nick-and-shear’ cut off to a bender eliminates the need for a separate post bending trimming operation thus saving time and minimising scrap.
- Automatic production processes
If the production batch size justifies a dedicated process, BLM GROUP machines can be easily integrated together to create an automated production processes.
The technical features of BLM GROUP tube bending machines coupled with their reliability and world wide service network makes BLM GROUP the ideal equipment partner.
The all-electric control of every axis and simplified control system provides BLM GROUP machines with guaranteed process reliability and system availably of close to 100%.
