The BMS 63 is Sica's automatic machine for bending and socketing with exceptional rapidity PVC pipes common in electronic and telephonic systems. In particular, this machine can process pipes with a diameter from 16 to 63 mm, with possible final length from 140 to 650 mm. The machine is equipped with a versatile multi-bender and multi-belling system that can bend with a variable angle between 90 and 0° (so, it can also avoid bending) and with bend radius from 1 to 5 times larger than the diameter of the pipe itself.
At every end of each bend/pipe, the machine can also socket (through suitable thermoforming process) both solvent cement and O-Ring type (optional) in every desired configuration, such as:
- simple bend
- bend with single socket end
- bend with sockets on both ends (double socket)
- straight unbent pipe with single or double socket
- In this way, every possible production need can be satisfied.
The bending is hydraulic/pneumatic, and it is controlled through specific proportional valves and linear encoder that guarantees absolute precision and repeatability of the process. Every setting is automatically adjusted from the operational panel with the machine in operation, which prevents interruptions, manual changes or dangerous access into the unit.
Large glass panels on each side of the machine allow full visibility but contextual security of the
process, allowing the operator to follow the repositioning of the pipe through
the different units within the machine, which is composed by:
- 1 transport and sorting unit for pipes entering the machine
- 2 ceramic material heating units
- 2 multi-thermoforming units
- 1 multi-bending unit with logic control
- 1 ejection unit of final bent/belled parts.
The final product is unloading in a collection cart supplied with the machine. This allows easy removal of the product, while also permitting a check of the bent/belled product with total security during machine operation to make real-time changes to the necessary parameters for optimizing the process.
The machine can, if required, be equipped with a suitable AL/T63 storage feeder with which BMS63 becomes a system for creating bent pipes. In fact, the system can store pipes 3 m long, automatically generate pieces of desired lengths (with a specific cutting system with millimetric precision), and feed continually the bending machine, fully automating the process.
Security, management ease, rapid set-up and format change, minimal level of required maintenance, high productivity per hour and high precision in realizing the characteristics of the desired product, distinguish and confirm the quality and the technology of Sica products.
