BendingStudio 2.0: News for bending production

Three years after the successful launch, AICONs BendingStudio comes up with a new version. BendingStudio 2.0 offers many new features, which facilitate daily work in bending production.

The main innovation is “data service”. If BendingStudio is installed on several workstations, interconnected users benefit from a shared access to the same stored content. Users at the shop floor or in the office can create, call up, or even modify component data and inspection plans. This optimizes work processes: The planning process can be physically separated from production, so that operation there is not disturbed or interrupted. That saves time and money.

On top of this, data organization has been completely revised: Content is now arranged in tree structure, i.e. in thematic groups with up to four subfolders, which guarantees for a better and clearer survey.

Another new module is “CAD Reverse Engineering”. A component's bending data are automatically derived from CAD, and a bending program is created. Users simply upload their IGES or STEP data into the software, which are then displayed in the program. The bent part can be extracted, and a complete bending program is provided within only a few minutes.

The element “BD Freeform” is a new correction strategy for bend in bend and bends with correctable radii. For this, the user selects a freeform-gauge inspection. The optical measuring system TubeInspect captures tubes with freeform bends within seconds, and the program calculates the corresponding correction data.

In 2012, BendingStudio has its world premiere at TUBE in Düsseldorf/Germany. Since then, it has continuously been complemented and optimized. New customers and established TubeInspect customers use the program and appreciate the facilitations in their daily work. BendingStudio connects all data and processes around production of bended parts: from production and process planning to manufacturing and quality control. It is the only tool to meet and combine these requirements with emphasis on metrological processes.
