For decades, transfluid solutions for tube processing have been used effectively in the production of tractors and towed harvesting machines, as well as self-propelled machines and smaller agricultural equipment.
One of the key topics is hydraulics, which is used in agricultural machinery to drive, lift and move. To process the tubes needed for this application transfluid offers a large range of machines, from the basic mandrel-bending units (also for small tube batches and mobile use) to the very flexible, CNC-controlled machines with short set up time and the option to bend both clockwise and counterclockwise. This guarantees faster processes and higher output.
Materials and geometries are real challenges, as the production batch are often small for hydraulics tubes with great diversity of geometries. Materials with higher strength are used in addition to the standard materials. That is why transfluid tube bending machines offer great flexibility.
It makes sense to have a one-piece flow and flexible production, because tubes of different diameters will be processed. This means less stock and the preparation of the tube can be done right before installation. Transfluid machines prepare the tubes perfectly for this, starting with the cutting.
The cleaning, cutting ring assembly and forming are also an option. The tubes can be processed from both sides and bent after the preparation is complete. With transfluid t motion you have the option to combine the processing options efficiently and with great results in a customized manufacturing unit.
Prototyping and software – safety from the very first tube
Prototyping is one of the key factors for success in tube processing. Transfluid machines can be operated manually to produce a first set of tubes. Transfluid are also offering tools that allow you to measure the component or entire sets of components directly on the item and in a flexible manner, and also to generate digital data.
The isometrics can be processed directly from CAD with transfluid t project software. Both the technical department and the machine operator can use different interfaces to import data and run collision tests. Thanks to transfluid software, the very first tube can be used for the installation. The tubes are produced in a way that is extremely close to the final assembly and ready to be incorporated, which is a requirement for a functioning and reliable hydraulic system.
