Product Specifications

J&S Machine offers several styles of loaders for connecting with the YLM CNC tube benders. The addition of an automatic tube loader to the pipe bender will increase production and save operational cost by reducing the manual labor required to produce your products. The most popular models shown below include the side loading / unloading system designed for working with the smaller CNC benders and the larger front loading model for the larger CNC tube benders.

Model SF016 side loader

The model SF016 side loader feature a tube storage area that sorts and loads the tubes one at a time utilizing a double grip actuator arm to side load the CNC tube bender in a non mandrel bending operation. At the end of the bend cycle this model also grasp the bent tube and unloads the part placing it in a storage bin for ease of handling. Communication with the bender insures a smooth consistent operation.

YLM Auto Loader

FD 045 and YFD- 90C

The model FD 045 and YFD- 90C front loader is designed for working with CNC tube benders in either a mandrel or mandrel less bending operation. The loaders use a seam finder image inspection system for alignment of the tube to the tube bender. The loaders feature the following:
  • PC base controlled system for ease of software program setting, maintenance or modification for user specific operations
  • Large LCD Touch screen for easy humanistic user interface
  • Servo motor drives for high stability, fast speed, and durability
  • Industrial camera and light source module for high stability and long life
  • CCD Image inspection. This is the newest camera technology resulting in far better accuracy than the older CMOS type which used to be the industry standard.
  • Software controlled resulting in fewer adjustments for a changeover. Mainly collet and cushion require change when changing diameter
  • Capable of working with robot or other auto unload devices as well as operator interface for unloading tube from bender and starting load sequence
  • Large container capacity for tubes from 1” to 3-1/2” diameter in lengths from 28” to 120”. Capacity in 2” OD size is 60 tubes
