Engineering & Production Advantage
The mechanical and hydraulic systems on HRB4 machines are designed by experienced Durma engineers. These engineers
utilize parametric 3D engineering technology (Pro/Engineer) as well as static and mechanism analysis. All mechanical,
hydraulic and electronic systems are designed and tested by Durma electrical and mechanical engineers. Only following
lengthy tests and evaluations are the machines authorized to be manufactured into serial production.
Simple Operation
Four-roll bending machines, by design, are safer, faster, more
productive and user friendly than three-roll machines. The
bottom roll, which is positioned on the same Y axis as the top
roll, secures the sheet edge for accurate pre-bending and
minimized “flat” zones at the sheet edge.
The two side rolls are controlled independently. Parallelism is
assured by the support of the two side rolls during the bending
Forming is achieved by securing it between the top and bottom
roll. CNC bending of polycentric and elliptical shapes is easily
achieved with this design.
Planetary Guides
Planetary Guiding
All rolls with 17” or smaller diameter are equipped as standard
with a planetary guide system. In this system, swing arms are
used for guiding the rolls, allowing them to function as two
independent axes moving along an arc. Material spring back is
also minimized. Two rolls are driven as standard, with an
option to have all four driven. A 1.1” minimum diameter of the
top roll can be achieved.
The side rolls are guided by swing beds which hallow them to
act as two independent axes moving in a planetary plane.
Machines 1 3/8” have a dual planetary gear system. The
system allows bending of diameters as small as 1.2 times the
top roll diameter. Side rolls position in a planetary approach to
the top roll, allowing better pre-bending as well as minimizing
spring of the material that occurs during the bending process.
Precise Roll Positioning
Side rolls are triggered by four independent and oversized
hydraulic cylinders. Synchronization between the rolls is
realized by combination of magnetic rule measurement and
PLC’s achieving response within milliseconds. High precision
load-holding valves working with a torsion bar system is used
for roll parallelism. Sheets of different thicknesses are secured
without part deformation.
Hydraulic Drop End
For easy part removal, the end frame assembly is hydraulically
lowered to facilitate part removal.
Strong Guiding Systems
Top rolls are guided with spherical roller bearings. The bottom
and side rolls are seated in bronze bushings.
Induction Hardened Rolls
Stress Relieved Frame
The machine frame and connections are stress relieved after
the welding process. The completed frame is machined in a
single pass with one position on the five axis CNC machining
center. In this way, parallelism of all axes and surfaces is
precisely machined, assuring long-term durability and the
ability to produce accurate parts.
Four Rolls Drive System
Durable Rolls & Crowning
The most important element of plate roll bending machines are
the rolls themselves. In some cases, builders can use weaker
rolls, allowing bending diameters to five times the material
thickness. Durma machines can achieve diameters to 1.2
diameter of the top roll.
Highly durable carbon steel (C45) rolls are machined by CNC
lathes with high precision without creating a notching effect.
Work surfaces of the rolls are induction hardened to HRC
54+/- 2 and hardness tests are done from different points.
A crowning shape is machined into the rolls to compensate for
deflection that can occur during the rolling process. Special
crowning for different materials can be applied free of charge.
Conical Bending
With Durma’s strong frame and angular bottom and side rolls,
wide angles and small diameter conical parts are easily bent.
While some machines on the market allow minimum conical
bending of three times the top roll diameter, Durma HRB4
machines can bend to a diameter of 1.5 times that of the top
High Torque Roll Triggering
Durma Rectilinear Rolls
Because of its high torque, the HRB bends parts with fewer
steps. All rolls are activated by independent high torque
hydraulic motors and planetary gear boxes. The activation
system is positioned on the same axis as the roll, so high
torque is transferred to the sheet without any power loss.
On machines with roll diameter larger than 17” a rectilinear
guide system is used. This system moves in a straight line, not
a curve as in the planetary system. This results in a better,
more stable system for pre-bending and rolling heavier plates.
All four rolls are also driven in this system.
High Torque Drive
Hydraulic & Electrical System
Machine movements are triggered by hydraulic components. The system
consists of well-known electrical components, such as Siemens, Schneider,
Phoenix and Opkon. The system is protected by current overloadings for its
components, power supplies, electronics and motors.
Bosch Rexroth valves provide quick and accurate response time. Overload
pressure valves are used to withstand peak pressures and eliminate system
overload damage.
Planetary Swing Rolls
Control Systems
PLC Control System
A PLC control system ensures the machine’s bottom and side
rolls operate synchronously. Up to five steps can be
programmed with the touch screen. The PLC controls six
different axes, therefore reducing setup times.

Optional Features
Vertical Working Feature
When performing large scale bending, the horizontal floor
space required can be substantial. Providing there is vertical
clearance, vertical positioning and bending can reduce the
required floor space considerably.
Separate Power Cabin
If the working area is dirty, a separate hydraulic and electrical
system is preferable as it extends the life of the machine and
enables easy maintenance and handling.
Vertical format bending also eliminates the need for side and
vertical material supports that are required to reduce distortion
and stretching that occurs when horizontally bending. When
desired, the machine can also be used horizontally.
Optional Features
Extended Rolls
Automated Roll Bending
Extended shafts can be ordered for the bending of profiles
such as tube, square and round profiles.
When production volume requires, different automated
concepts are available.
Optional Features
Vertical or Special
Sheet Support Systems
Optional hydraulic side or vertical support devices are
available to reduce sheet stretching and deterioration during
bending of large sheets. Moveable gauges with hydraulic
double cylinders are produced from st52 steel construction. It
can be supplied according to different tonnage and height.
