3d Printing Designs For Bespoke Metal Bending Machines

Jun 11, 2016 | News

When new machines are developed, not only are Inductaflex able to provide a 3d simulation of the machine; a 3d printed scale model can be supplied to enable viewing prior to final signing off.

These models can have movable parts and simulate the bending environment when placed upon a scale outline of the site.

Sometimes this process highlights an improvement to the machine or processes surrounding this. Handling is one area that can be simulated and this can be quite a large part of the cycle time, especially when the pieces are large with two, there or even four point slinging.
