Quality must be present from the very start of any successful manufacturing process.

On most hydroform and structural frame systems, this entails a CNC type bender and related automation in what is often referred to as the ‘pre-bend’ or ‘pre-hydroform’ portion of the production line. Wayne Trail provides benders and automation specifically designed for these functions.

Stand-alone programmable benders, or complete bend systems are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate tubes ranging from 1” to 6” in diameter.

Typical automation includes a debundler and a weld seam detector/positioner. Debundlers can be of the hopper-conveyor type, strap type or overhead magnetic pick and place. Camera based vision systems are used as standard for weld seam detection. Magnetic, eddy current or fiber optic systems are also available.

Tubes can be moved through these modules with a transfer or robot depending on customer preference or application requirements.
