Unison Launches New Range of Tube Bending Machines

Unison Ltd., which provides all-electric tube bending machines, has launched a new range of hybrid models to make its products available to a wider range of companies involved in tube manipulation.

The new machines are called Synergy HBM (hybrid, multi-stack) and will be available initially in a version with a maximum tube diameter of 50 mm and another version with a maximum tube diameter of 80 mm. The versions will feature the company’s latest Unibend Lite control system.

“In developing the Synergy HBM range, our objective was simple: to offer all the values associated with the Unison brand to a greater number of tube manipulation businesses,” said Alan Pickering, managing director of Unison Ltd. (Scarborough, North Yorkshire, U.K.). “The new Unison Synergy HBM range is the result of an extensive development program and will provide a lower-cost entry point for businesses that do not require the extensive capabilities of our all-electric premium range of Unison Breeze machines.”

As hybrid machines, Unison’s Synergy HBM range combines electric and hydraulic operation. As with Breeze models, bend arm, carriage, plane of bend, and carriage side shift are servo driven, while mandrel, pressure die and clamping system are hydraulically controlled. Consequently, Synergy HBM machines are well suited to high volume, repetitive tube manipulation operations that don’t necessitate the rapid setup times and all-electric control provided by Unison Breeze machines.

“Each Synergy HBM machine is equipped with our user-friendly Unibend Lite control system, with touchscreen, 3D component simulation and measuring machine interfaces,” Pickering said. “We have used Eaton hydraulics, Yaskawa motors and drives and our own, tried and tested, Unison tooling mounts. Additionally, the Bendpro CNC control system can be specified as an optional extra by customers in the USA.”
