All our plate rolls are ensured to have the maximum torque throughout the entire speed range, not like many competitors only at low speed. We use hydraulic drive for all three rolls as standard. Naturally we have variable speed as standard for all models, to help the operator to produce the best results.
SweBend designs and produce the strongest and most user friendly machines on the market. You can be sure to get the highest drive torque and strongest bending power compared to any other plate roll of the same size.
Perfect for bending companies & job shops (see the PB4 for series production). The PB3 series which is the strongest 3 roll machine series ever made is versatile and universal machines. Through advanced engineering and knowledge of components we can guarantee the highest pre-bending power and torque in comparison to all similar sized machines on the market. The machine power is the key factor in bending.
SweBend has developed a new complete standard range of three roll plate bending machines, starting off with the PB3-4-2 (top roll Ø100mm, length 650mm) and stretching all the way up to the giant PB3-40-12 (top roll Ø1000 mm, length 3650mm).
- Double-pinch pyramid design, enabling pre-bend at both ends of the plate
- Razor sharp electronic control of roll parallelism (0.1mm tolerance)
- Wireless control unit with joysticks and display
- Hardened & ground rolls with extremely high roll finish.
- Easy pre-bending and rolling in either direction
- Tilt-able bending rolls
- Rotational speed variation
- Four digital readouts (= both roll ends)
- 3 hydraulic powered rolls
- SKF bearings only
- Top electrical & hydraulic components from the best suppliers.
- Hydraulic opening mechanism for unloading finished roll
- Emergency stop button
- Special rolls with contour, grooves etc, to allow bending plates with flanges and/or ribs
- Changeable top roll for small diameters (extra top roll)
- Cone bending device (key or roll)
- Special color and design
- Oil cooling system
- Top support/lifting device with electric or hydraulic operation
- Side supports
- Calibration Systems
- Much more …
All machine sizes are designed with the know-how SweBend engineers achieved over a long period of year and with extra attention to even the smallest details that truly will make a big difference in the long run. Anyone can build a plate roll but very few know what is required to make it perform and last for decades!
All our plate rolls have hydraulic drive for all three rolls as standard. For the smaller sizes we use one motor but for the bigger we use two or even three, depending on model and requirement. We ensure maximum torque throughout the entire speed range, not like many competitors only at low speed.
Naturally we have variable speed as standard for all models, to help the operator to produce the best possible parts in the machine.
SweBend design and produce the strongest and most user friendly machines on the market. You can be sure to get the highest drive torque and strongest bending power compared to any other plate roll of the same size.
- Heavily proportioned machine frames and mechanical parts
- Top components from the best suppliers.
- High quality, hardened rolls
- SKF components, The world famous Swedish Bearing Company.
Special requirements – Demand the best, demand a SweBend
With our standard range of models as foundation, we also design & produce special tailor made plate rolls. This can be with a unique roll diameter, roll length or even the shape of the rolls. Request help with integrating the machine in your product line, demand special features and ask for what you think is impossible, we’ll gladly prove you wrong!
Made in Sweden
Means a machine that guarantees the highest quality in all details resulting in longer lifetime, less maintenance & repairs, higher output, better production quality and an unmatched return-on-investment!
