Performance bending and coiling machine B 36

November 2018 — Wafios’s “Performance” machines are produced in PR China, where the Germany-based company operates its own production facility in the city of Zhangjiagang. 

In time-honoured fashion, however, the engineering processes take place at the company’s Reutlingen headquarters, harnessing the design expertise that has been established there over many years. Even in their most basic configurations, Performance machines are designed to suit a large number of commonly handled applications – but it is also possible to obtain a defined package of additional options for them. The machines have been developed with two key aims in mind: to provide a solution that addresses the needs of as many customers as possible, even if they opt for simply the basic version, and to deliver outstanding value for money on the market. One of the latest machines to be launched is “B 36”, a high-performance CNC bending and coiling machine that has been showcased on selected Asian markets since mid-2017. Its basic version features five programmable CNC axes for the rotating feed unit, wire feed, cut, bending mandrel, bending pin, and bending head. Another CNC axis, this time for the support plate, is also available as an option. This is suitable for use with bent parts that have long spring legs, for instance. Also included in the basic version are the “WPS 3.2 Easy Way” programming system with a 24" touch screen and hand-held operating device, a rotating feed axis with roller straightening unit, a manually adjustable bend-back clearance for 400mm or 800mm, a ready-prepared interface for connecting the pay-off unit. A tool kit with the option of a four-pin bending tool in a two-radius version for soft wire (2mm to 6.5mm; suitable for eyelets, for example) or a milled multi-radius tool that is suitable for spring steel wire (2mm to 3.6mm) and narrow bending radii is also available. The feed unit comes complete with a mechanical clamping system for the four feed rollers, plus a position display. The maximum feed speed is 120m/min with a maximum rotation of ±200 degrees.
