For more than forty years, Unison Ltd has been manufacturing tube bending machines working with customers to design and build some of the most cutting-edge tube bending technology available on the global marketplace today. It pushes technical boundaries, whether this is in the manufacture of the world’s largest all-electric tube bending machine or an integrated software solution. This has rewarded the company with a global reputation for solving the most challenging customer problems.
In the mid 1960’s when Pneuform was founded, concentrating it concentrated its efforts on the design, development and manufacture of pneumatic and hydraulic tube and wire bending machines. Pneuform produces wire bending machines in both 2- and 3-axis models that cover a range of wires from 2 mm (0.08″) to 16 mm (0.63”). Pneuform also produces a range of tube machines that have been developed for specific industries. The 2-axis bending machine will produce serpentines, coils and spirals with either a static flat table for smaller parts or with an integrated 3 axis table to support large parts. The 3-axis bending machine provides the versatility to produce a variety of shapes.
