Tube and Pipe Forming Company Buys Eighth Unison Tube-Bending Machine

Sharpe Products has purchased its eighth Unison Breeze all-electric CNC tube bender. The machine, an 80 mm (3″) single-stack model, will be installed at Sharpe’s Wisconsin-based manufacturing center.

Posted: June 13, 2021

The 80 mm single-stack Unison Breeze machine was chosen by Sharpe Products for its ability to deliver the accuracy and reliability necessary to meet the strict tolerances required by the company’s customers in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical device.

The tube bender is equipped with Unison’s recently upgraded Unibend software, which offers cycle time speed improvements in the region of 25 percent compared to earlier versions and incorporates new teach routine and simulation features.

Like all Unison Breeze tube bending machines, the 80 mm (maximum tube diameter) Breeze offers rapid setup, fast tooling changes, exceptional power, rigid mechanical design, and all-electric control for right-first-time repeat sub-contract work, or immediately after producing a single trial part.

Other Unison Breeze machines operated by Sharpe Products include a 50 mm (2″) Unison Breeze-Revolution tube bender, a machine equipped with a novel rotating head, enabling it to make left-hand and right-hand bends in one continuous manufacturing cycle. Sharpe also has 76 mm (3″), 80 mm (3″), and 130 mm (5″) multi-stack Breeze machines–machines able to accommodate several tools for rapid changeover in between bending cycles–and a 100 mm (4″) single-stack model.

An ISO 9001:2015 certified company, Sharpe Products (New Berlin, WI) provides expertise in pipe and tube bending, laser cutting, and custom fabrication services for commercial and industrial applications.
