Heavy-Duty Bending
The new WEGENER BV 306 bending machine is suitable for processing sheets in up to .” thickness. In its standard version, the machine is capable of bending PE, PP and PVDF. For these semi-crystalline materials, a V-shaped top heating bar is used to achieve a permanent corner. When equipped with a flat bar, the machine can easily handle PVC, CPVC, PC and acrylic.

The heating element travel limitation, which is offered as an option for the upper and the lower bar, allows the bending of see-through materials without leaving any markings. So even in heavier gauges, a cosmetically pleasing bend is achieved economically with accuracy at full repeatability. The heating times, bending times and the temperatures are set by way of a modern Siemens 7” touchscreen. Operation is performed with easy to follow displayed symbols. Once the parameters are set, the operator can insert or relocate the sheet and let the machine do its job. For added versatility, a lateral quick- release fastener on the clamping beam allows for easy removal of closed profiles.
