3-D Wire Forming and Welding
TBE Multibend Wire Forming Machines utilize features such as multi-axes servo control, wire rotation, component indexing, plus fast and accurate transfer systems which allow total automation of complicated wire parts for 3-D, 2-D, or assembly applications. Welding of 2-D or 3-D components is ideally suited to the flexible TBE Multibend platform. TBE perfected transfer systems simplify the process of moving finished forms to welding stations (plus, in the case of spring steel, into the required annealing stations) and additional secondary operations.
Special Spring Automation
TBE specializes in automation of springs and wire forms which normally require costly secondary operations. Servo controlled mandrel winding heads provide high speed, excellent positioning, and excellent diameter control. This translates into world class Cpk capability for load and dimensional requirements. By incorporating their unique transfer technology, TBE automates such spring making processes as trimming short hooks, chamfering ends, flattening, twisting, & crimping.
