Lander recently invested in a BLM Elect 150 Tube Bending machine for our Malvern factory.
One of only 3 in the UK, the Elect 150 is the largest tube bender in world leading machine machine manufacturer BLM’s range, weighing in at a massive 18 tonnes.
With the capability to bend tube up to 6 inches in outside diameter with a wall thickness of up to 6mm, the heavy duty machine is extremely versatile and provides greater control when processing larger diameter tubes.
The BLM’s software systems ensure that quality, repeatability, and right-first-time every time are guaranteed, which is invaluable in the low-volume and high product complexity environment of our Malvern facility.
This machine will also provide more consistent quality through reducing potential leak paths by eliminating the need to cut, fabricate and weld larger diameter tubes. In addition, the reduced processing times will help to lower costs and provide a more competitive end product.
