3D simulator speeds development of tube bending programmes

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

Unison has launched an advanced 3D simulator to help metal fabricators accelerate the development of control programs for all-electric tube bending machines.

Using artificial intelligence techniques, the simulator provides programme analysis and optimisation facilities, together with realistic real-time visualisation of the tube bending process.

The simulator is based on true CAD models of the target machines, resulting in detailed computer-generated imagery. The simulator is designed specifically to help users develop high quality production-standard tube bending programs without the need to test and optimise them on the target machine.

Used in conjunction with Unison's Windows-based Unibend control software, it enables fully validated bending programs to be created entirely off-line, and is suitable for any machine in the Breeze range of all-electric tube benders.
