Transformed tube: cutting and bending
Talleres Grala desarrolla desde hace tiempo un trabajo de transformado de tubo. Principalmente cortamos y curvamos.
For tube cutting we have Adige automatic feeding CNC machines, capable of cutting tube and rod (lengths 65 mm – 3000 mm). For auxiliary operations we work with 2 semi-automatic saws, 1 small band saw, 1 tilting saw and a manual saw.
The section of the tube that can be cut depends on the shape:
- Round Tube: Up to 102 mm in diameter
- Square Tube: Up to 80 mm side
- Rectangular Tube: Up to 100×60 mm
Tube bending is a cold forming process that is applied to metal tube to give it curvature.
For tube bending we have 3 bending machines. Two of them are multi-radius capable of bending tubes up to 65mm in outside diameter, and the other is one-level capable of bending tubes up to 42mm in diameter.
