Remote control

  • Remote control serves as a controlling device of the axles on the bending machine.
  • Remote control controls the X rotation movement of the back axles and Y straight movement as well as rotation movement of middle axle on the machine.
  • Remote control has a range of around 50 m.
  • Remote control is very useful because it makes work significantly easier to a machine operator especially in a situation when a long profile is inserted in the tools.
  • Remote control is practical in a situation when after completed bending process bent profile is removed out of the machine.
  • Remote control replaces four green buttons which are located on the control board of the machine.
  • Remote control has a safety STOP button which enables the machine operator to immediately stops the bending process from a safe distance in case of an unforseen or dangerous situation. 

Program for creating work orders for bending from an office

  • Program for creating working orders for bending, enables an operator who works in an office a complete online control and communication with bending machine. Office operator with the help of the program has an option to create working lists for bending and after that to send directly from his/her own office computer the tasks in a form of a working list to bending machine that await to be executed. By using this program, work for a machine operator is made significantly easier; it removes possibility of miscommunication between an office and production. Office operator has a possibility to observe visually and oversee via 3D cameras the machine in real time. Office operator can at any time keep track of the phases from working list the machine operator managed to execute which was previously sent to a bending machine.novo

NFC device

  • NFC device serves as a quick and easy way for an operator with a coded card to sign-in and signout to a machine, by which greater program safety as well as safety of all the data on it is achieved.
  • NFC device enables access to bending corrections which are the most important data in the machine program exclusively to a machine operator via coded card.
  • NFC device enables that one operator can at the same time have access to main program as well as to bending corrections. 
  • NFC device uses application which doesn't allow another operator to login into a machine program if he doesn't have his coded card or password. If a machine operator forgets his card he can always login via matching password.
  • NFC device is installed on the inner side of a lower machine's cabinet.

Laser device with thermal camera

  • Laser device with thermal camera is an optical device of latest generation which contains special thermal sensor that measures current temperature of a profile during bending. novo
  • Laser device with thermal camera has a function to detect a marker on the middle of a profile so that an arch can be symmetrical on both left and right side at the end of bending process.
  • Laser device with thermal camera enable precise measuring of  temperature of a PVC profile during bending process. Information about current temperature of a PVC profile during bending is very important because the program based on this information can automatically adjust and correct bending process that was started.
  • Laser device with thermal camera contains a display located on the back side of the device on which an operator can easily notice detected marker on the middle of a profile.
  • Laser device with thermal camera contains gyroscope which determines an angle ie. inclination of laser device in regard to a profile. Information about inclination of a laser device in regard to a profile is very useful during positioning of the laser device in regard to the profile.
  • Laser device with thermal camera contains a sensor which measures a distance between a laser and a profile which makes positioning of the device in regard to the profile easier.
  • Laser device with thermal camera contains a light sensor which clearly marks the reading zone of the laser device with red horizontal line on a profile.

Automatic pneumatic platform for laser and encoder

  • Automatic pneumatic platform is a device which serves to carry the encoder and the laser device and it is placed on the middle of the control board right behind the back machine axles. novo
  • Automatic pneumatic platform has a direct communication with a machine's computer so that an operator has a possibility to position the platform in regard to a profile in following 3 ways:
    1. First method is for a pneumatic platform to be positioned on its own on the required height based on previously selected profile which in the program has already saved predefined height position of the platform in regard to the profile.
    2. Second method is to position platform manually with 4 buttons on the monitor.
    3. Third method is to position platform manually with 2 buttons placed on the right side of the platform.
  • Automatic pneumatic platform enables faster, more precise and easier process of positioning of the platform before bending initiation to an operator.

Permission to input new profiles into the machine's program

  • Permission to input new profiles into the machine's program is charged extra and it enables an operator to input without limits and completely independently new profiles into the machine's program since this option is disabled in the standard equipment package on all machine models. novo
  • Permission to input new profiles into machine's program enables an operator to independently insert all the necessary parameters as well as desired corrections for each new profile.
  • Permission to input new profiles into machine's program is quite significant and it refers only to the customers who want to make independently new tools for bending profiles after buying the bending machine.
  • Additional explanation:
    Machine buyer will get already inserted parameters for all the tools he ordered from the seller during the acquisition as well as necessary corrections for each tool ie. for each profile. If the buyer after certain period of time wants to order new tools from the seller he needs to know that tools price already includes the costs for inserting all the parameters and corrections for that new tool ie. new profile. However, if the buyer want to make the new tools on his own it is necessary for him to buy the permission to input the new tools and profiles into the machine's program. If buyer of the machine decides to make new tools on his own, input of new tools and profiles into machine's program can be done by the seller for an suitable financial fee. Inserting parameters and corrections into the machine's program by seller also requires certain time and effort so that work is also charged extra to a buyer of the machine.

Program for 3D scanner for scanning of arch patterns

  • Program for 3D scanner serves for scanning of arch patterns of both regular and irregular shaped arches. 3D scanner can scan patterns up to 2,5 meters wide. Pattern scanning lasts around 5 seconds. Upon completing the scanning program automatically determines the measurements detected on the pattern as well as all the radii. Based on this data program automatically determines the shape and measurements of the arch that machine needs to bend. novo
