The 1042E is a tube bending machine with double bending direction from the Up&Down series for tubes up to 42mm in diameter. The bending head performs cross movements to create tube geometries during the automatic cycle without operator intervention. Normally, these parts would require post processing operations. The wide range of accessories for specific and unusual processes that it can mount and its ability to produce bends with CLR/DIA ratio even lower than 0.8, or bends with variable radius make this machine suitable for use in sectors requiring high production and precision. The Siemens 840D sl control unit manages the nine electric axes.
