Its unique design and a proprietary agile U-Axis facilitates speed and productivity. The programmable angle of the B-Axis enables bevel cutting of the material thickness, making a better surface for welding, multiple tube assembly, and fit and finish.

It’s extrusion-tapping process uses a rotary spindle and eight tool positions—any tool position can be deployed for direct tapping or combined with extrusion, providing proper thread depth.

Options include a spatter guard that protects the inner tube from cutting debris and reduces secondary processes. A part sorting system with dual belt conveyors offers optimal part processing, while a weld seam detection camera orients the workpiece for proper geometry orientation.

The FT-150 FIBER’s compact layout has an ergonomic design with the operator area, loading station and unloading station all located on the same side. The machine’s condensed footprint means it can be placed along a wall or between aisles. 

Auto-profiler calibration and nozzle cleaning further enhance productivity.

The Rules of X-Ray Micro CT (and When to Break Them)

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.

Hydraulics vs. Electrics: Selecting the Right Press Brake

by Mary Scianna

If the press brakes in your fabrication shop are more than a decade old - not uncommon given the solid construction of most press brakes - and you're in the market for new replacement equipment, you may be surprised by the technological developments on today's press brakes.
