The RD5 bends semi-rigid cable using a rotary wipe process. This technique has proven to be the most gentle bending technique on the semi-rigid cable providing for excellent signal transmission when the cable is in its final assembly. The collet closer that holds the coax during the bending process is designed specifically to grip yet be gentle on the cable’s outside jacket. The design of the carriage spindle allows the end of the coax cable to get right up next to the bend tooling on the very last bend. This often translates into avoiding a trimming operation after bending.
Software features include hitch feed, pause before bend, XYZ to LRA conversion, interference checking, 3 axis per bend speed settings and more. An optional STEP file converter allows a user to read in a CAD generated STEP file direct from CAD right into the bender’s controller. This eliminates the need to type in the cable’s bend data standing at the RD5's controllers. Simply read in the 3 dimensional bend data direct from your CAD system and the bender is ready to run. It’s that simple.
