Brief Description

TS Fabricator's designers and plugins are aimed at users whom operate the bending equipment. It has easy-to-use designers but yet powerful enough to get the job done. Its plugins will improve setup time and decrease scrap. Work in full 3D and see how your tube goes through your die before touching a piece of metal.

Component Details

TS-Core: TS-Core is the backbone of the TS features, libraries, settings, and calculations. In addition, TS-Core adapts the TS Designers and Plug Ins in the product grouping and has open slots for additional TS Designers and Plug Ins you may purchase in the future. Following are some of the high points to the Core:

  • Video Help functions throughout the product.
  • Die Library including stretch calculation wizards.
  • Material Library (round, square and rectangular stock).
  • Manufacturing data; cut length, bend locations, bend angles, rotations between bends, straight tube lengths, bend lengths and weight.
  • Display LRA, YBC or XYZ results.
  • Spring Back recording and calculations.
  • Verify; double check your part design.


Designer-Linear 2D: A user using this designer clicks on a grid with his mouse to create his part. Tube and bend representation within the graphics is automatically handled from the die and material selected. After a part has been drawn out, length and angle adjustments are made within the designers field entry panel.

Designer-Linear Dynamic: This designer is a full 3D designer, however, it uses the simplicity of 2D. Grab the end of your tube with your cursor and pull it,reen lengthening and shortening a straight section of tube. Double click on the end of the straight section to add a bend. Grab the bend and change the angle and rotate the material between bends with the rotation rings. This interface works great if you know angles and rotations of your finished part.

Designer – Grapple: This designer is also a full 3D designer, however, it will define the bend angles and rotations for you. The user grabs one of the grapple handles representing the six different directions and gives it a pull or push. As the grapple moves across the screen the tube follows it in that direction. Grab a different handle on the grapple and the tube will begin moving in that direction giving it a 3D rise and run feel or like the movement of a knight on a chess board. As this happens the software will adjust the angle and the rotation as needed.

Designer - Template Advanced: The Template Advanced group includes dozens of predefined shapes of commonly bent tubes. Enter the dimensional values into the templates fields and you part will be created. Many of the templates include not only center-line of material for sizing, but also inside or outside.

Plugin - Simulation: TS's simulator shows general movements of the material moving through your die and how it bends and rotates. A user defines his bending type; clockwise, counter clockwise, rotary draw, rotary compression or center compression. Zoom, rotate and pan the screen as the action takes place. Simulation will help in many ways, especially rotation descriptions and getting a general idea of what is happening during the bending process.

Plugin - Manufacturing Checking: Set up minimum length distance in your die description for the first straight length the distance between bends and the last or holding straight leg length. This is not collision checking, however, it is a quick check to make sure the part has enough material between bends to be able to bend.
