The biggest gains in productivity when utilising the Variobend DB are made when bending heavy, long and awkward parts. On this type of part a great deal of time is wasted turning and flipping the part. In fact far more time is spent handling than bending. Users of Variobend DB benders are quoting a minimum doubling and often as much as quadrupling the output on common profiles compared to conventional single bending machines. Complementing the productivity improvement gained by elimination of turning and flipping is the advantage that many jobs are reduced from a two man operation to a single man operation.
