Inductaflex launches all electric CNC aluminium bending machine

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Inductaflex will launch its first ever fully electric CNC bending machine at Fabtech, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event in Chicago, between November 9th and 12th.

The AL-1 is intended to provide automotive, aerospace, commercial vehicle and other customers with a cost effective, high precision, multiple bend solution.

AL-1 is said to be able to bend most materials and profiles, from complicated aluminium extrusions to polished stainless steel tubes. During development, the machine successfully curved a 45 x 65mm extruded aluminium window section to a 165mm outside radius and 120mm inside radius – a task that has traditionally been considered to be beyond normal limits for such an extrusion. Inductaflex claims that the AL-1 is opening up new possibilities in aluminium glazing section design.

The Inductaflex unit is also said to be capable of automatically curving up to 10 radii per bar and can operate with running costs reduced by 70%, in comparison with an equivalent hydraulic machine.
