All you need for tube bending in a single application
Kolli supports both simple mandrel bending machines as well as modern right- and left-bending machines with multiple bending heads and levels. In addition to standard mandrel bending with bending die Kolli also simulates roller and induction bending.
Generating CNC Data & Reporting
Apart from machine data Kolli generates according bending reports containing the material and bending parameters. The appearance of the reports is highly customizable.

Machine and Tool Management
The Material Manager administers the material-specific properties of the tubes, bars and profiles. Especially in unit production of tubes it is essential to achieve a precise bending result on first try. Using the Material Manager empirically derived material properties can be collected and recorded easily. The information serves the fitting accuracy of the pipelines to be bent and the generation of CNC data. It is used to calculate precise cutting lengths, considering the material’s springback, the reduction in traction lengths caused by overbending and the bend’s radius increase, as well as the material stretching inside the bend.
BATCH Testing of Multiple Products on multiple Machines
Bending with End Preparations or Flanges
For each tube geometry Kolli determines a machine-dependent theoretical cycle time. This way the speed and efficiency of axis movement sequences or several machines and can be compared directly for optimizations in mass production.
