Tube Benders


All Electric Pipe Bending Machines
Left and Right Tube Bending Machine with 7 ~ 10 Electric axis

The new SOCO CNC Tube Bender  which is equipped with Left and Right Bending Technology for maximum flexibility and minimal interference. The “ U type” pipe bender is especially suitable for complex parts and shapes, such as automotive head rest, fuel lines, heating and cooling systems. This pipe bender is equipped with 7 ~ 10 electric CNC axes, 2 bending stacks and uses SOCO’s unique DGT technology ( Direct Gear Transmission ).

  • Left and Right Tube Bending capabilities in the same cycle
  • DGT technology – Gear Transmission Bending for Highest Speed and Accuracy
  • Easy Programming – Setup a part in the same way as a single directional bend
  • Elongated bending neck for maximum working area
  • 7 ~ 10 Electric servo controlled axes pipe bending machine
  • 2 speeds + Early mandrel extraction
  • Automatic Groove Detection System for ensure the tube in right direction before bending (Optional)
  • Automatic mandrel lubrication
  • Touch Screen with IPC ( Industrial PC )
  • Multi-stacks + Multi-Radius
  • Independent pressure die system for each bending stack
  • Optional Automatic Loaders (AF), Groove and Seam Detectors and Automatic Unloaders (AUL)
Automation Cells
Tube Bending Machine with Robot ( Auto Loading + Unloading ). 
Advanced DGT
SOCO’s unique DGT technology ( Direct Gear Transmission ) is the worldwide patented bending system that brings you the most efficient and stable bending process, offering the highest accuracy and repeatability in draw and roll bending. Most SOCO CNC tube bender equipped with this technology.U series Pipe Bender equipped with SOCO DGT technology.The Advantages of DGT : 
  • Chain free transmission
  • Built-in gearbox with direct connection to electric servo
  • Highest transmission performance ( 90%+ efficiency ) against other gear based systems
  • High tube bending accuracy ( +- 0.05° ~ +-0.1° )
  • Low noise level
  • Maximum Working Area = Minimal Interference
  • Elongated neck for superior clearance (***)
  • Compact bending head
  • Side carriage and bending head (***)
