Unison Ltd has launched a brand-new range of hybrid tube bending machine models to make its uncompromising levels of quality, reliability and support available to an even wider range of companies involved in tube manipulation.
Called Synergy HBM (hybrid, multi-stack), the new machines will be available in 50 mm and 80 mm (maximum tube diameter) versions initially and will feature the company’s latest Unibend Lite control system.
“In developing the Synergy HBM range, our objective was simple: to offer all the values associated with the Unison brand to a greater number of tube manipulation businesses,” comments Unison Ltd managing director, Alan Pickering. “The new Unison Synergy HBM range is the result of an extensive development program and will provide a lower cost entry point for businesses that do not require the extensive capabilities of our all-electric premium range of Unison Breeze machines.”
As hybrid machines, Unison’s new Synergy HBM range combines electric and hydraulic operation. Just like Unison Breeze machines, each model benefits from exceptional power and rigid mechanical design. As with Breeze models, bend arm, carriage, plane of bend and carriage side shift are servo driven, while mandrel, pressure die and clamping system are hydraulically controlled. This makes Synergy HBM machines well suited to high volume, repetitive tube manipulation operations that don’t necessitate the rapid setup times and all-electric control provided by Unison Breeze machines for right-first-time repeat sub-contract work.
