Tab Bender

Levin Engineering created the semi-automated tab bender to increase manufacturing efficiency by automatically forming metal tabs on a hypotube and simultaneously measuring the distance between these tabs.

This increased the accuracy from the previous manual tab forming process and eliminated a separate inspection step.

Process Description

The operator uses a microscope to load a hypotube into the machine, which automatically forms the tabs while measuring and numerically displaying the distance between the tab ends.
