TEACH the Chiyoda or KEINS Bender the Correct Part Shape


Let Benderlink use measuring centers to steer the bender to the right part shape - FAST.


NEW - Use Included VTube-STEP to import SOLID MODELs to the Bender 

  • SolidWorks
  • Solid Edge
  • Inventor
  • AutoCAD
Using VTube-STEP (included) -  you can convert universal SOLID MODEL data to bender data for transfer through your network - NEVER re-enter the bender data again.
Throw away old FLOPPIES -

Manage 20,000 FILEs & BACKUP to Network

Use the unlimited capacity of your network to store tens of thousands of bender files.*

Backup all your Chiyoda and KEINS data to the network.

*Yes, we really can make that claim: We have a customer that regularly manages 16,000 parts with Benderlink. We have designed and tested Benderlink to search through huge databases of parts in a split second.

ENTER & Edit DATA in a REMOTE Location


Enter data in a Windows PC using the OFFLINE version of Benderlink - then send it to the full Benderlink for download to the bender.

More About Benderlink for Chiyoda and Keins


Benderlink is designed to make corrections-loops between measuring centers and KEINS or CHIYODA benders a snap. Take your part-shape bender setup from hours down to minutes with the Benderlink system attached to a tube measuring center. (Note: We've documented actual cases that prove our claim.)

Supported Measuring Centers:

  • Supravision based Measuring Centers (like FARO with VTube-LASER, Romer, Aicon, Romer France, Addison, Axila, Multi Systems)
  • Eaton Leonard Vector based Measuring Centers (like Laservision)
Because of the network capability of Benderlink, all connections use standard Ethernet cables.  This means that your bender can be placed wherever Ethernet cables are run.  In most modern plants, Ethernet connections can be easily extended everywhere.
WIRELESS CONNECTION Customers can also choose to purchase an additional wireless Benderlink Modules that communicate through a standard WiFi Network
The software allows for the storage of bender data on the Benderlink hard drive.  Data can be both RECALLED and SENT. Benderlink also allows for all 20 channels to stored as one "Block"
The software also supports full corrections loops between the measuring center and each bender.
TRANSLATION LOGIC Sophisticated translation logic allows MQ41 operators to insert extra rows of avoidance moves in the FPB data without confusing measuring centers in corrections-loops. Data is correctly re-translated when sent to the bender so that the special avoidance moves are not disturbed.
180 DEGREE BENDS Benderlink is the only bender to measuring center system that automatically handles the 180 degree bend problem when communicating with measuring centers. (Measuring centers cannot handle bends that approach 180 degrees.)
CARRIAGE POSITION Benderlink automatically positions the carriage when adjustments are made by the measuring center to the tube lengths.
DATA EDITING Edit bender data and and view tube shapes at the Benderlink computer.
