DRIVE UNITS

Roll Bending Machine Supplier

One geared motor per series roll.
We have been fitting our roll bending machines with Danfoss motors for more than 35 years. Rotation of the rolls is synchronised in the factory by a hydraulic device which prevents any variation over time.

Advantages: maximum torque, optimum performance, speed synchronisation, reliability.

+

LINEAR GUIDANCE

Roll Plate Bending Machines, 3 roll bending machine, 4 roll bending machine

The most appropriate technology because of its lack of friction and its performance in all operating modes: cylindrical and conical bending.

A strategic choice too for optimal prebending on the 3 roll bending machines and 4 roll machines bending machines.

Advantages: maximum performance from the hydraulic pressure, no wear.

+

PROPORTIONAL DISTRIBUTION

Bending Machine Supplier, 3 roll bending machine, 4 roll bending machine

All our roll bending machines are equipped with roll position and rotation control with proportional adjustment.
From a standard machine with manual control to one with Danfoss proportional valves, roll bending quality is assured through progressive and high-precision movements. The valves fitted to our machines have been specially designed to Picot’s own specifications and developed with Danfoss.

Advantages: progressive movement, quality of sensitive areas, ergonomically designed for the operator.

+

SYNCHRO-ALIGNMENT

> Hydraulic adjustment (Hydraulic valves on standard machines)

> Numerical control of each cylinder to ensure perfect alignment throughout the roll bending machine’s service life. Cone rolling is controlled by those same devices. Position control and measurement are provided by absolute linear scales: no need for calibration on start-up and confidence that the part will be held in place even after an emergency stop or power outage. The coupled lever simplifies movement and controls the synchronisation between prebend rolls with a single hand.

Advantages: manufacturing process efficiency, precision of movement, ergonomically designed for the operator.

BEARING SYSTEM

Roll Plate Bending Machine Supplier

All our roll plate bending machines are fitted with bronze bearings which will withstand heavy loads during the roll bending phases.
This technology is unrivalled both in terms of capacity and of longevity..
Lubrication is centralised and requires no maintenance.

+

ROLLS

Rolls are made from high quality steel with selected, traceable characteristics.

> Made-to-measure dishing
> Polished finish to guarantee no marks, even in very sensitive materials.
> Induction hardened: hardness of 50-60 HRC.

Advantage : made-to-measure production for our roll plate bending machines

PREBENDING of sheet metal

Respect for materials

High-performance prebends. The best are made with 3 rolls: shorter flat edges and greater power with Picot thanks to their construction and the optimal spacing of rolls.

Watch our sheet metal prebending video

Cone ROLLING MACHINE

Ease / efficiency

Easy cone rolling with maximum torque on 3 rolls bending machine for ease of production (loss of torque with 4 rolls due to pinch retraction).

On PICOT 3 or 4 roll machines, each roll is independently driven.

See the video of cone bending

Profile BENDING MACHINE

Intelligent design

Wide gap between the rolls allowing the bending of certain additional profiles. Watch our profile bending video

3D with no lamination

Respect for materials

Roll bend all types of materials or products without lamination, including 3-dimensional shapes. Technology which also offers the possibility of post-welding calibration for precision to the mm, without spoiling joints.

Symmetrical roll bending
ROLLING

Ease of use

The symmetrical position of the rolls during roll bending ensures perfect control of the final result (distancing between contact points describing the diameter of the circle being made: precision and minimum variation).
