BLM Group USA has introduced the 4-Runner, a multi-purpose compact tube bending machine for a variety of applications.

 The 4-Runner can be configured as a dedicated tube bender for a specific production application or a complete process that includes straightening from coil, bending, end-forming and cut off. The system provides maximum flexibility and manufacturing capability, while lowering investment cost due to process integration of a variety of operations.

The new tuber bender allows, within the same cycle, the ability to bend both right hand and left hand, in fixed and variable radius bends, in single and three-dimensional planes. The possibility of combining different bending technologies with different bending radii in the same part offers maximum flexibility, productivity and accuracy. Although used in a variety of applications, the 4-Runner is ideal for the HVAC applications helping manufacturers achieve their lean manufacturing objectives.

The 4-Runner is ideal for machining small to medium sized tubes and can bend tube to 22 mm (0.89 in.) diameter with accuracy to ± 0.05” in. on the X axis and ±0.05° on the Y and Z axis. Unit comes standard with 2.76 in. maximum bending radius, but increase bend radius option is available.

The unit incorporates VGP3D, a 3D visual graphic program for constant monitoring of the machine to assist in performance and operator ease of use. With VGP3D operators can generate a single machining program simply by entering geometric part data, automatically simulate the feasibility of the bending operation, change the running sequence directly in simulation mode and can calculate the real cycle time in advance.
