Scott from WI... Easy to learn and takes the guess work out of the job. Blows the competition away.
Andy from CA... one of my friends asked me "is it worth it?" without trying to laugh I said yes, of course it was. ... I spend less time and waste nothing, I make more money!!! this program could sell for 10 times more and it would be worth it.
What is Bend-Tech SW?Bend-Tech SW is a software application that allows a user to design tubes, pipes and rods in SolidWorks™, then within SolidWorks™ send part geometry directly to Bend-Tech to calculate correct manufacturing instructions.
Which SolidWorks™ features are recognized? Bend-Tech SW will allow you to work with Sketch Lines, Sweeps & Weldments.
How does it work? After completing your tube design, select the Bend-Tech icon or pull-down menu within the SolidWorks™ framework and select the green check to send it to Bend-Tech. Within Bend-Tech, select the tooling corresponding to the radii in your part, or allow Bend-Tech to select if for you from a tooling to radius relationship table. In an instant your manufacturing details are available.
Can elongation be calculated? Absolutely!!! We have a simple testing procedures that you perform with your tooling and material. From this, you will obtain values in your Bend-Tech tooling library to calculate correct bend lengths.
Will Bend-Tech SW calculate spring back? Yes. Bend-Tech SW creates its own internal formulas from a data history file of your materials, tooling and machines. With this Bend-Tech calculates the Spring Back Angles for your job.
Will Bend-Tech SW work with my bender? Yes. Bend-Tech provides proper cut lengths, bend locations, bend angles and rotations for all machines. This includes all manual, NC or CNC machines which are rotary draw, rotary compression or center compression benders.
Do I need to design in SolidWorks™ with the correct tooling radius? No. This is a problem for many job shops. Often, part files from their customer’s engineers who may not be familiar with the shop’s production tooling. To solve this problem, once a part has been sent to Bend-Tech you can change a single radius or the tooling of the entire part with a single mouse click. Bend-Tech will then instantly adjust your part length and bending instructions.
Will Bend-Tech SW provide XYZ or LRA data? Both!!! Bend-Tech SW provides proper centerline apex XYZ values and LRA data (LRA; Length Rotation & Angle; also known as YBC). Bend-Tech have several different charts to choose from and accommodates the variation in structure formats for bend locations and rotations.
What versions of SolidWorks™ does Bend-Tech SW support? As of the date of this document, Bend-Tech SW supports 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012
