Flanges made easy
Making flanges for ducting and pipe extensions just got easier! Ercolina offers an optional fourth roll accessory that can be fitted onto a standard CE40 or CE50 machine to aid in the production of angle iron coils. After this operation, the coil can be cut on one side to yield a perfect ring. The fourth roll is fitted between the two lower rolls and applies pressure upward supporting the leg, keeping it perpendicular. Custom tooling may also be required depending upon your material profile.
Did You Know…
…it’s time to take a cruise!
Almost every possible type of metal fabrication is required to build a cruise ship. On March 14, 2016 the world’s largest cruise ship touched water for the first time. Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas measures 1,187 feet long and stands a staggering 18 decks high. The mammoth vessel was constructed at STX Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France beginning in 2013. Before the hull was even assembled, the shipyard first had to machine 400,000 metal pieces out of 60,000 tons of steel. Final touches include a 10 story slide known as the “Ultimate Abyss” made up of two separate cylinders, a reflection of one-another, each with a diameter of approximately 2.6 feet and constructed of stainless steel. Scheduled to set sail in May, Harmony will host 6,400 guests and a crew of 2,100.

Consumption calculations made easy
There is an easy way to calculate the amount of material consumed during bending? You can easily determine the amount of tube (overall cut length) using this simple formula.

Will you be our friend?
The world’s most popular social networking sites certainly have changed over the years, and they’ll undoubtedly continue to change as time moves forward. Old social networks will die, popular ones will stick around as they’re forced to evolve, and brand new ones will appear.
So, what’s everyone using right now? Here are some of the most popular social networks and where you can find Ercolina on them.
Data in – finished product out
Recently, CML-USA completed the installation of an ErcoBender 76 CNC mandrel bending machine. This installation required the integration of Tekla software. Tekla is project management software that allows customers to design an entire project and then break apart and manage individual sections down to a bill of material level. In addition, this software was used to generate CAD files for the handrail needed within the project. The engineering staff in conjunction with product managers from Tekla worked together to achieve an equitable solution for the file importation into the bending machines operating system.
Now, a file can be created within the Tekla software and the specific design features can be imported into the machine control to produce the profile.
