Stierli Benders for Ship Building

When Bends Need to Be Ship-Shape


Stierli has created a series of bending machines designed specifically to meet the needs of the global ship-building industry. The SE series was created expressly for accurate bending of ship frame profiles.

Along with the typical HP ship frame, also known as a Holland profile, HP frame or bulb flat, the SE series can accommodate other bending profiles – including L and T profiles. The profiles can be bent individually or in opposing pairs. The machine can also be used for pipe bending and for straightening. Both manual and ultra-modern CNC controls with laser systems are available. The machines are used in shipyards as production bending machines or for ship repairs and retrofits.

With a centralized clamping system to hold material in place during the bending operation, Stierli benders are both productive and space efficient. The SE series features a spacious work platform for easier bending of large parts. Inching functions, straightening functions, or automatic bending programs can all activated via remote hand control or foot pedal. Options are available to deliver high degree of process reliability and automation. A long stroke and movable support rollers allow a high degree of workpiece adjustability.

Support plates with dovetail mounts make for fast and easy tool changes. Abutments can be adjusted electro mechanically.
