Bending machines for ship’s profiles

Bending machines for ship’s profiles

The SE series bending machines are designed specially for bending ship’s profiles for frames of ships. Along with the typical HP ship’s frame (also known as a Holland profile, HP frame or bulb flat), it is also possible bending profiles, like L profiles and T profiles. The profiles are bent individually or in pairs. The machine can also be used for pipe bending and for straightening work. Both manual and modern CNC control systems are available. The machines are used in shipyards as production bending machines or for ship repairs.





See the benefits of our ship profile bending machine for yourself:

  • Various, universal applications for ship profile machining:

    • Bending of ship’s frames (HP profiles)
    • Bending of L-profiles
    • Bending of T-profiles
    • Edge bending of flat steel

      Other applications:
    • Bending pipes
    • Carrying out straightening work
    • Bending flat steel
    • Bending round steel
    • Forming tools, etc...

  • Control systems that are easy to learn
    Our controls are designed in such a way that the operator can learn how to use them very quickly. 

    The modern CNC control system has a clearly designed user interface. Graphical symbols support and facilitate the operating process.

    The manual control system is very popular and has been tried and tested in practice over decades. The control system can be picked up in just a few minutes. 

  • Very strong, robust machine design
    The rigid, robust design of the machine guarantees precise working with excellent long-term accuracy.

  • Strong abutment bars for precise bending results
    Our abutment bars are extremely solid, which is essential for precise bending results.
  • Very strong cylinder guiding system
    The very strong cylinder design means that open guides are not required. The entirely enclosed guide system offers many advantages that help to maintain a long service life and long-term accuracy:
    - The guide system is protected against wear 
    (in contrast to open guides)
    - No additional lubrication required, no need for servicing.
    - Our guide concept allows the working table to be completely enclosed.
    Scale cannot enter the guide system.

  • High repeat accuracy
    The combination of a very rigid machine design, precise hydraulics and the use of high-quality control components results in high repeat accuracy.
  • Stopping under load
    For set-up work or manual straightening work, the straightening press is able to stop under load.
  • Continuously adjustable working speed from 0-10 mm/s
    A continuously adjustable working speed is a big advantage for precise adjustment work. Bending can be carried out at full speed in automatic mode without reducing the speed when the bending point is reached.

  • Mobile or crane
    If necessary, the Stierli bending or straightening machine can be moved to a different set-up location.

  • Easy loading of ship profiles
    The open design with large insertion width allows easy loading and parts handling by crane or motorised roller conveyor.
