DH4010VGP - the new twin head, all-electric bending system

DH4010VGP

BLM GROUP is consolidating its presence in the metal wire bending world with a new twin head bending system. The DH4010VGP is a further development of BLM GROUP in this product type and implements important new features to increase productivity and flexibility with respect to older systems.

 More news from BLM GROUP for the metal wire processing sector. DH4010VGP is the new, all-electric bending system with two independent heads capable of bending wires up to 10mm in diameter and bars, flat rods, wire-wound resistors and tubes.

The twin head makes this system well suited for bending medium to long parts with many bends, particularly when high planarity is required.

The two bending heads can work independently to make asymmetric parts. They have been entirely redesigned, capitalizing on the positive experience of the E-FLEX bending systems. Each head is provided with a twin bending turret which increases system flexibility with regards to the achievable bend types. The DH4010VGP can apply flexion bending on each of the two turrets, pressure die bending for minimum radii, edge bending, variable radius bending and strike bending on the same part. Various technical solutions provide answers to an ever-increasing number of needs.

The extra flexibility is demonstrated by the possibility of making parts which were once thought to be geometrically impossible. The reworking potentials, previously experimented on the E-FLEX, are used to manage bending sequences very dynamically and avoid impossible geometries. Some parts deemed infeasible because of the collisions generated during machining can be made by DH4010VGP by modifying the order of various steps in the bending sequence. This clever yet simply capability facilitates the operator's work making it possible to process an increasingly higher number of complicated parts.

Part feasibility also allows the possibility of minimizing the length of straight parts and the DH4010VGP has answers for this issue as well. The handler that turns the wire length being processed can retract and clear the working field. This allows the bending heads to move very near each other and make very close bends.

Higher system productivity is also guaranteed by optimized dynamics and cycles. For instance, the wire cutting and end-forming unit is fitted on a carriage having linear movement independent from the heads. This additional innovation contributes to increasing the productivity of the DH4010VGP by approximately 30% with respect to older systems.

The tried-and-trusted VGP3D programming and control software, with its three-dimensional graphic interface and easy programmed collision simulation and control system, is used.
