HAEUSLER calibration of cones
THE ONLY MACHINE that can calibrate cones

By inclining all three rollers, the cone can be brought into a position on the machine where it can be held stably. This allows continuous calibration of cones.
Cones can also be calibrated without manipulators.
Manipulators and the upper support ensure time saving in positioning the welded cone on the machine.

HAEUSLER EVO
Manufacturing Equipment

HAEUSLER “WIND-EQUIPMENT” is designed for maximum productivity, reliability and ease of operation.
In addition to the actual bending machine, the accessories and the control system are of crucial importance!

HAEUSLER
UPPER SUPPORT – WIND

HAEUSLER UPPER SUPPORTS are modular and therefore available in a wide range of sizes and support heights. Capacity range from 0.5 t to 150 t supporting force / Supporting range from 1.5 m to 15.0 m.

The boom is pivot-mounted.
Special versions with cone retrieval system are available.
If requested, the upper support can also be fully integrated into the machine CNC.

HAEUSLER
SIDE SUPPORT – WIND

HAEUSLER SIDE SUPPORTS are available in a wide range of sizes. Capacity range from 2 t to 100 t supporting force.

Special manipulators are mounted to the side support. These manipulators optimally support the operator in bending, as well as in aligning the sheet ends before welding.
When bending conical workpieces, the sheet can be aligned with the help of the manipulators.
If requested, the side support including manipulators can also be fully integrated into the machine CNC.

HAEUSLER
ROLLER TABLE – WIND

There are basically two different types of HAEUSLER WIND ROLLER TABLES available:

  • Roller tables that are firmly fixed to the floor (for plates > 80mm)
  • Roller tables that can swivel during pre-bending (for plates up to 80mm)

Special manipulators are mounted to the roller table.
When bending conical workpieces, the sheet can be aligned with the help of the manipulators.
If requested, the roller table including manipulators can also be fully integrated into the machine CNC.

HAEUSLER
LASER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

Simple and fast QUALITY CONTROL
Two laser distance sensors continuously measure the inner shell surface during calibration and create a graphic on the control system showing the deviation from the preselected tolerance and the position of the out-of-roundness. Operators can thus approach any out-of-roundness with pinpoint accuracy and check the result immediately.

Facts
Accuracy of Lasers = +- 0,5 mm
Accuracy of read out = +- 0,1 mm
Control and display = Integrated in control panel
Data exchange = PDF Document

During the calibration process, the operator can easily detect the out-of-round areas and correct the workpiece accordingly.
After calibration, the operator can easily and quickly generate a quality report.

HAEUSLER BENDtronic® BENDING BECOMES CHILD’S PLAY

  • The revolutionary BENDtronic® from HAEUSLER makes it possible to control the bending result yourself.
  • The software is graphically supported and allows bending in one or more passes.
  • It can be used for any type of product shape such as cylinders and tubes, ovals, tanks or other more complex geometries.

HAEUSLER bending machines are not only THE choice for a high quality production but also for the best economical performance.

HAEUSLER HHDS®
HIGHEST EFFICIENCY combined with
SUPERIOR PRODUCTIVITY

The HAEUSLER Hybrid Drive System HHDS® provides an unmatched efficiency due to the consequent usage of electrical motors in combination with planetary gearboxes. In practice this means savings of up to 50% of the running costs.

Additionally, the Hybrid Drive System allows a step-less adjustable rotation speed from 0 – 8 m/min. This is, compared to other machines that are available on the market, an increase of 60% and the basis for a high productivity.

WORKING SPEED IN COMPARISON

ENERGY COSTS IN COMPARISON

RUNNING COSTS
VERSUS WORKING SPEED

• More than 60% faster rotation speed
• Less than 50% operation costs

CONVENTIONAL
HYDRAULIC DRIVE

Roll adjustment and rotation are actuated hydraulically

  • high oil volume required
  • system is always running
  • high running costs
  • limited rotation speed (due to oil-volume)
  • efficiency of system ~ 60%

HAEUSLER’S HIGH EFFICIENT
HYBRID DRIVE SYSTEM

roll adjustment and rotation are actuated independently

  • low oil volumne required
  • system is only running if necessary
  • low running costs
  • high rotation speed
  • efficiency of system ~ 85%

HAEUSLER VSA®
Allows bending of thicker plates

and smaller diameters

The new and patented VSA® – technology allows the operator to bend either very heavy wall thicknesses or alternatively very small diameters. This can be realized by a unique adjustment of the bending geometry.

By using two instead of only one pivot point for each side roll swing arm fixation, the machine can individually be adjusted either to create a wide bending geometry for heavy wall thicknesses or a tight geometry if small diameters shall be bent.

The EVO is worldwide the only 4-roll plate bender with this unique feature. For our clients it means that they are now in a position to get a machine with up to 85% more bending moment compared to conventional bending machines.

HAEUSLER VSA® –
SHIFTING UP THE LIMITS

FLEXIBILITY VERSUS OUTPUT

• Up to 85% more rounding power – “EVO can bend thicker plates”
• No geometrical limitations – “EVO can bend very small diameters”
• Changing geometry is done in minutes

THE INSPIRED IDEA BEHIND
THE VSA TECHNOLOGY

Two pivot points are better than one

Performance
has a reason

With HAUESLER equipment you significantly reduce running costs and therefore increase your economical output. That‘s the true value of HAEUSLER bending machines.
