Delivery and commissioning of a mandrel bending machine S8003 in May 2017, together with our distribution partner WELEBIL at KTM (WP Performance Systems GmbH) in Munderfing in Austria.
KTM is an international Austrian motorcycle and sports car manufacturer with more than 180,000 vehicles sold per year (as of 2015).
In prototyping demanding tasks are on the table here: tight bending radii, short clamping lengths, special profiles (4eck + 8eck pipes), etc. In addition to the motor frame, the exhaust systems are also bent. One of the challenges here is that the workpieces are processed with the tube laser before the bending process. After the sample parts have been released, the bending data obtained via the bending machine and tube bending software are passed on to the production. The freely programmable export interface of the software, which supports almost all standard file formats, helps here.
We thank Mr. Denk and his team for their trust.
