Precision aerospace engineers choose new tube bending technology

Unison has won a significant order for tube bending machinery from the precision aerospace engineering company, Supercraft.

The machinery will help Supercraft to expand operations at its new manufacturing facility in Brough, UK, in preparation for contracts recently secured from major aerospace customers. It will also provide the software flexibility needed to enhance productivity of specialist low volume parts through use of ‘closed-loop’ manufacturing techniques.

The order calls for two Unison machines. Supercraft wanted another Evbend 1000 low-cost CNC tube bender – a novel machine which minimises the costs of producing small-batch high value parts by means of manually powered tube feed, rotation and bending, but with smart CNC-controlled braking on these axes to ensure precision.

The second machine is a 30mm model from Unison's Breeze family of all-electric tube benders. The Evbend machine was installed at Supercraft’s Brough facility in December 2014; the 30 mm Breeze is scheduled for delivery in Q1 2015.
