Our IMG machines are specifically designed for bending medium and high section aluminum profiles.
Although they admit profiles of any size, the optimal operation of our machines begins with profiles of more than 10 kg / m, both for open, closed or solid profiles. One of the main advantages of our machine compared to others on the market is that the production time doesn’t vary regardless of the size of the profile to be bent.
Our machines bending system allows the manufacturing of bends that integrate different radiuses onto each single profile, radiuses that can point to either the same side, or to opposing sides --S-shape bends, without the need to include any straight in-betweens, thus achieving a curve continuum.
Another of the main advantages of our models is that the profile doesn’t suffer any type of damage during the bending process, leaving the curve in perfect condition for subsequent surface treatment (lacquered or anodized).
For all curves, with one or more radius, our method make G2 curves thanks to the semi-continuos system.
Some extra, straight material will be needed in both endings of each profile produced. Pieces that do integrate straight ends will keep the extra material as usable, whereas fully-bent pieces will produce such extra material as a by-product to be disposed of later. This straight material doesn't suffer any damage.
