Benderlink in action
More About Benderlink for Chiyoda and Keins
TRANSLATION TO/FROM MEASURING CENTERS
Benderlink is designed to make corrections-loops between measuring centers and KEINS or CHIYODA benders a snap. Take your part-shape bender setup from hours down to minutes with the Benderlink system attached to a tube measuring center. (Note: We've documented actual cases that prove our claim.)
Supported Measuring Centers:
Supravision based Measuring Centers (like FARO with VTube-LASER, Romer, Aicon, Romer France, Addison, Axila, Multi Systems)
Eaton Leonard Vector based Measuring Centers (like Laservision)
STANDARD TCP/IP NETWORK
Because of the network capability of Benderlink, all connections use standard Ethernet cables. This means that your bender can be placed wherever Ethernet cables are run. In most modern plants, Ethernet connections can be easily extended everywhere.
Customers can also choose to purchase an additional wireless Benderlink Modules that communicate through a standard WiFi Network
The software allows for the storage of bender data on the Benderlink hard drive. Data can be both RECALLED and SENT. Benderlink also allows for all 20 channels to stored as one "Block"
The software also supports full corrections loops between the measuring center and each bender.
Sophisticated translation logic allows MQ41 operators to insert extra rows of avoidance moves in the FPB data without confusing measuring centers in corrections-loops. Data is correctly re-translated when sent to the bender so that the special avoidance moves are not disturbed.
180 DEGREE BENDS
Benderlink is the only bender to measuring center system that automatically handles the 180 degree bend problem when communicating with measuring centers. (Measuring centers cannot handle bends that approach 180 degrees.)
Benderlink automatically positions the carriage when adjustments are made by the measuring center to the tube lengths.

Use Included VTube-STEP to import Solid Models to the Bender
Using VTube-STEP (included) - you can convert universal SOLID MODEL data to bender data for transfer through your network - NEVER re-enter the bender data again.
