BLM Group USA’s E-Flex CNC bending machine is equipped with two clockwise and counter clockwise bending turrets to make easy work of three dimensional bending within the same machining cycle.

Coil-fed wire is straightened in both a vertical and horizontal orientation for various size and types of wire as well as automatic operation, which allows repeatability in most operations.

The E-Flex bends wire with complex shapes and allows for short runs, as well as high-volume production. The machine automatically corrects the program by searching for prior bends that could interfere with the bending sequence, thus eliminating manual adjustments.

Chamfers are added for burr-free cuts.

The unit incorporates VGP3D, a 3D visual graphic program for constant machine monitoring.

Operators generate a single machining program by entering geometric part data, automatically simulate the bending operation, change running sequence in simulation mode and calculate real cycle time.

BLM Group is a manufacturer of tube processing equipment based in Cantu, Italy.
