Bend Tech Software

The Bend-Tech line of metalworking design software includes both sheet metal and tubular design products. Each tubing software product can be upgraded to the next level of software if desired. These easy-to-use programs will help you save time and wasted material without needing prior experience with CAD software.

The new Bend-Tech Dragon A400 is ready to take on all your industrial needs. It is the complete solution for tube notching, cutting, and marking round tubing from 19mm to 150mm in diameter as well as 19mm to 150mm square and rectangle tubing. The Dragon is capable of taking a full length of tubing, cutting it to length, notching the end profile, making holes or slots as needed, and then marking any bend locations with rotation and degrees. Bend-Tech Dragon obtains all of the necessary information from Bend-Tech Industrial software automatically.

Included with the Bend-Tech Dragon is two powerful software packages; Bend-Tech Industrial and Bend-Tech Dragon Software. Working side by side, these products will allow you to create 3D CAD designs from scratch or convert from SOLIDWORKS, AutoCAD, Inventor, PRO Engineer, etc. into a readable format for the machine. Dragon Software will automatically create your cutting, marking and etching paths directly from Bend-Tech Industrial and comes with a nesting ability to allow several parts on the same length tube.

Bend-Tech SE is a must have if your job, business or livelihood depends in part on bending tube, pipe, rod, wire, and bar. We have provided SE with the tools that will allow you to be productive no matter what problems you face in your tube bending fabrication

Design with Manufacturing in Mind

SE has extra tools that you will need when you are concerned about setup and production times. What separates SE from the rest is its focus on manufacturability and flexibility in design.

Focus on Design Flexibility
  • SE has an XYZ interface.

  • SE has an advanced LRA “Length, Rotation & Angle” design interface.

  • SE has a very powerful reverse engineering feature.

  • SE allows for dxf/step/iges/ interfacing (with the Import/Export function).

  • SE allows for unit conversion (inches vs millimeters).

Focus on Manufacturability
  • SE checks to verify sufficient material is available for the bending process.

  • SE can provide a “spring back” bend angles.

  • SE provides extra checking tools to verify part validity.

  • SE allows for multiple dies to be used on the same part.

  • SE has extra functionality for roll bending.

  • SE provides a graphical layout interface.
