Advantage of BIT CNC Aluminum Profile Bender

Repeatability and Accuracy: Fully servo-driven, higher repeat positioning accuracy, allows for precise control over the aluminum bending, resulting in higher accuracy and repeatability.
Variable Geometry Bending Rolls: Maximizing machine capabilities requires the flexibility of variable centers to accommodate various workpieces.
Springback Compensation Calculation: PBA’s CNC control system by simply testing the actual radius during bending, the springback compensation amount can be determined and inputted into the system, ensuring achieving the desired geometric shape and dimensions during the aluminum bending process.
Ease of Use:
Operators should be able to master complex bending tasks within a single day; Consistent accuracy; Consistent shape production; Simple development of irregular shapes; and Reliability for both low and high volumes.

Notes: Each batch of aluminum extrusions will have slightly different chemical compositions, resulting in varying degrees of springback during bending. Excessive variation in the bending curvature radius can lead to certain deviations.

PBA Aluminum Bending Machine vs. Conventional Machines

Servo System of Aluminum Bending Machine

Y-axis Positioning Methods

  • Fully servo-driven, with a repeat positioning accuracy of less than 0.01mm, unaffected by temperature;
  • Conventional machines: Driven by hydraulic cylinders, positioning speed and accuracy are easily affected by temperature.
Servo System of Aluminum Bending Machine

Spindle (Y-axis) Rotation Drive

  • Servo motor + planetary gearbox, constant torque, no inertia, high positioning accuracy, high torque transmission efficiency;
  • Conventional machines: Variable frequency drive motor driving gear reducer, transitioning through a universal joint drive shaft, torque increases with speed, large motor inertia, leading to poor system stability and low positioning accuracy.
Horizontal Types of Aluminum Bending Machine

Horizontal Positioning is Preferred

  • PBA aluminum bending machines are vertical spindle and horizontal installations that high-precision bending for aluminum profiles of varying lengths, and are best suited for handling long, narrow workpieces, and also good for creating tight bends without deformities.
  • Vertical aluminum bending machines not suitable for processing biger aluminum profiles, can be more difficult to operate and they’re not as precise as horizontal machines.

Notes: When bending large workpieces or large-diameter aluminum profiles, horizontal positioning is preferred. Proper support in the chosen position prevents the weight of the workpiece from affecting the final results. Bending in a horizontal position is also utilized to address clearance issues at customer facilities.

X-axis Variable Center Distance of Aluminum Bending Machine

X-axis Variable Center Distance

  • PBA is the variable geometry aluminum profile bending machine, variable centers adjust the machine to perform like a large or small machine, and are suitable for bending aluminum profiles and for heavy metal fabrication work.
  • Conventional machines: The X-axis center distance of commonly used aluminum profile bending machines for door and window profiles in the market is not adjustable.

Aluminum Bending Machine FAQ

  • What is aluminum bending machine and how does it work?

    About PBA-CNC Aluminum Benders: Aluminum profile bending machines (also called aluminum benders) are used to form aluminum profiles.
    An aluminum bender is the forming of aluminum profiles in one axis by a multi-roll bending machine. If the semi-finished product is not moved during the bending process, the distance between the rollers, their diameter, and the depth of immersion determine the bending radius. To produce particularly large bends, the material is pulled through the roller bending machine and moved alternately. The distance between the rollers is gradually adjusted. In most cases, roll bending is the most flexible and cost-efficient bending method. A profile is guided between three adjustable bending rolls and gradually bent in the desired radius.
    Roll bending is the ideal bending method for profiles with complex designs and different radii. BIT’s PBA CNC profile bending machine has become specialized in 3D aluminum profile bending machines.

  • What information should I prepare before inquiry an aluminum bending machine?

    Before inquiring about an aluminum bending machine, it’s essential to gather pertinent information to ensure we recommend an informed decision aligning with your specific bending requirements.
    Aluminum Alloys: Note the specific aluminum alloys you’ll be bending (e.g., 6061-T6). The hardness state of aluminum is important.
    Drawings: Drawings of aluminum extrusions and bending process drawings.
