Today, airports are making great strides in reconsidering how technology is used in order to meet this objective.

New Bending Tool from Schwarze-Robitec Reduces Cycle Times and Waste

Previously, three process steps were required in order to manufacture bent pipe components: cutting the pipe under consideration of span length and commercial length, the bending process itself, and the final cutting of the component. In order to make this process more efficient and economical, the pipe bending machine expert Schwarze-Robitec developed a new tool solution: a cutting device integrated into the bending tool. This makes it possible to bend and cut pipe components of commercially available lengths in a single process step. The users' benefit is a reduction of material waste of up to 90% and production times that are reduced significantly.
