Kersten bends bigger profiles in even tighter radii

Kersten currently invests in a new PBT roll bending machine as a respond to increasing customer need for bigger curved profiles in even smaller radii .

The Helix roll bending machine is particularly suitable for bending steel and aluminium profiles with cross sections of up to 500mm height.

It is the first machine of this size to use a mandrel feeder. This reduces the risks for deformation of the cross section significantly, and enables us to bend profiles with minimal tolerances and in very small radii.  The machine has an advanced software system to realize a smooth transition from the straight to the curved part of the profile. The software monitors the bending process carefully and compensates even the smallest fluctuations.

The machine is a welcome addition to the already extensive machine park of Kersten in Steisslingen. It will be used for many different applications where large profiles with tight radii are required. Such as façades, machine constructions, vehicles and conveyor systems.

In May 2018 the machine is expected to be ready for the production of curved parts for all kinds of projects.
