Pipe forming technology is a complex matter – with ever smaller tolerances for advanced new projects from the different industries. These companies with their fresh ideas are, of course united by the wish of transferring the new product to serial production safely and reliably at once after development. This also applies to high-tech machine constructor transfluid, which uses its pipe processing technologies for research in its internal prototyping department. This is not only about sampling of its own new developments, e.g. in the area of tool technology. Companies without machinery of their own can have their pilot series analysed and precisely improved at transfluid.

„Support in this area is in higher demand than expected. Therefore, we have expanded our research and prototyping department once again just recently,“ says Stefanie Flaeper, managing director at transfluid. „We can perform diverse tests on components and tools with pipe diameters up to 65 mm here.“ A CNC-controlled type SRM rolling forming machine and two axial forming machines are used for this with a forming power of up to 25 tons. The entire process chain can be implemented with an additional CNC-controlled pipe bending machine and an orbital pipe separation system – to ensure that requirements, e.g. regarding burr formation, can be met.

Tests and documentation for light-weight construction components and high-strength materials as well
For specific customer projects, the experts in the department are testing new forming geometries and tool concepts for serial maturity and quality. The transfluid team relies, among others, on a tactile and visual measuring system for components and tools. The interim results up to the certain result are documented reliably.

The transfluid experts have special experience as a technology leader and initial developer of incremental pipe forming, which permits partial rotation-symmetrical forming of pipes made of high- and very-high-strength materials. In particular review and assessment with light-weight components and high-strength materials is possible as well. Depending on geometry, this can even be done tool-independently. Thus, the company can offer the pilot series or prototype production particularly cost-optimised.

transfluid Maschinenbau GmbH – the solution for tubes

transfluid is sought after worldwide as a partner for manufacturing tube bending machines and tube processing machines. Since 1988 transfluid has been further developing its technologies for tube machining, so that it can provide customer-oriented, tailor-made solutions – for plant and machine construction, the automotive and energy industries,
shipbuilding and medical device manufacturing.

transfluid\’s product portfolio offers perfect solutions in five different machine categories, that meet all the requirements in tube processing. t bend stands for a wide range of tube bending machines, which fulfil the highest demands in terms of industrial applications. The tube forming machines in the t form range offer the perfect tube shaping solutions. Tube forming is important as an individual or supplementary process, in order to obtain optimally tailored tubes. Automation systems are offered as fully developed concepts for bending and forming technology, under t motion. t cut covers the field of tube cutting machines. Here, transfluid is able to provide a range of different systems, for example for chipless orbital cutting and special knive separation processes. The category t clean encompasses tube cleaning machines. These ensure the cleanliness of workpieces and tubes. Additionally, with the new tu go range, transfluid offers a standardised portfolio of machinery, which is available from stock for immediate delivery. transfluid offers the powerful software t project for rapid and reliable tube processing. It can be used as an effective online solution for bending machines and the majority of CAD systems.
