Bidding on a bending job?

You can now evaluate bending machine tooling on your Apple iPhone. A calculator app by tube bending machinery specialist Unison Ltd. quickly picks the tooling needed for bending on any type or make of tube bender. You simply enter the required radius, tube diameter and wall thickness – in metric or imperial units – to get a visual of the type of mandrel and wiper die that will execute the perfect bend.

It’s compatible with any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad running IOS 4.0 or later, and it will be updated regularly. Indeed, Unison is currently developing user-selectable tube profiles and material types, such as steel, stainless steel, and copper, to facilitate machine-specific calculations such as bending force requirements.
