EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Hydraulic Tube Bending Machines (HTBMs) provide Aviation Navy and Marine Corps intermediate maintenance facilities with the capability of bending tubing of various diameters to precise angles required for aircraft system being repaired. This tubing may be composed of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Thirty-four Land-Based HTBMs and eighty-six Table-Mounted Shipboard HTBMs were procured. The Initial Operation Capability date for the Land-Based HTBMs was June 1987 and January 1988 for the Table-Mounted Shipboard HTBMs. The Land-Based HTBMs are only positioned at shore activities, while the Table-Mounted Shipboard HTBMs are positioned at some shore activities, aboard ships, and at mobile aviation maintenance facilities. A follow-on contract for procurement of additional HTBMs was awarded to the Eaton Leonard Corporation in 1997. These units were ordered with the same capabilities as the Table-Mounted Shipboard HTBMs, to be used for shipboard support. However, they were manufactured with an integrated stand making the unit too large for installation aboard ships. HTBMs are in Phase III (Production, Deployment, and Operational Support) of the Weapons System Acquisition Process.

HTBMs are operated and maintained by Navy Aviation Structural Mechanic (Structural and Hydraulic) personnel and by Marine Corps Hydraulic Mechanic personnel. Existing skill levels and manpower are sufficient to support the HTBMs, and no changes to current manpower requirements are identified.

Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC) Engineering Services Division personnel conduct training of fleet personnel on an "as required" basis. There is no formal follow-on training required for HTBMs.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The land-based and shipboard HTBMs are dedicated support equipment used for making accurate horizontal rotary draw bends of tight radii in standard and thin wall aircraft quality tubing of both ferrous and non-ferrous materials. The "land-based" HTBMs are positioned only at shore installations. The "shipboard" HTBMs may be positioned aboard ships, ashore, or at mobile maintenance activities.

2. Foreign Military Sales. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) of the shore based HTBMs (A/E 27M-9) have been processed. For additional information concerning FMS contact the Program Manager, Air (PMA)260.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. A Technical Evaluation (TECHEVAL) was conducted on the land-based HTBM (A/E 27M-9) from August 1983 to April 1984 at the Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD), Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, California. A supplemental TECHEVAL to determine the correction of deficiencies identified during the original TECHEVAL was conducted at AIMD NAS Oceana, Virginia, from March to June 1987. The results of the supplemental TECHEVAL were published in SY50-87-043, dated 23 September 1987. A TECHEVAL on the shipboard HTBM was not conducted. An Operational Evaluation was not conducted on either the land-based or shipboard HTBM.

    • Kit F/A-18 and AV-8 (same part number) containing special mandrels and wiper dies for bending titanium

a. Major Components, Land-Based. The land-based HTBMs consists of the following components.

(1) Tooling. Tooling consists of bending dies, clamping dies, pressure dies, follower dies, wiper dies, mandrels, mandrel rods (quick disconnect type), collets, collet pads or inserts, and mounting adapters. All tooling is self-aligning and interlocking.

(2) Nose. The nose assembly is steel casting bored to accommodate precision tapered roller bearings, top and bottom.

(3) Spindle. The spindle is made of precision ground alloy steel sufficient in size and strength to withstand the forces applied when the machine is operated at maximum rated capacity.

(4) Bending Machine. The stationary and swing arms are steel castings sufficient in strength to withstand the forces applied when the machine is operated at maximum rated capacity. The arms are accurately machined and fitted with tool holding slides. The mounting boss of the swing arm is fitted with keys and a locating ring for accurately locating the bending dies.

(5) Pressure Die Assembly. A pressure die assembly is provided to apply pressure during the bending cycle. The pressure die holder is mounted at right angles to the tube to be bent and is operated by means of a direct acting hydraulic cylinder. A gauge for reading the pressure and a control for setting the pressure is provided. A pressure die assist is provided to minimize required clamp lengths.

(6) Clamping Assembly. The clamping die assembly is mounted on the side of the swing arm and operates by means of a direct acting hydraulic cylinder. A gauge for reading the pressure and a control for setting the pressure are provided. The clamping die assembly is designed to provide easy alignment and uniform clamping pressure over the entire area.

(7) Mandrel Extractor. A hydraulically operated mandrel extractor assembly is furnished. The assembly is sufficient in stroke to extract the entire ball assembly of a three-ball mandrel from the bent section of the tube. The extractor provides the lateral adjustment to allow alignment of the mandrel with the centerline of the bend radii. Longitudinal adjustment is provided for mandrel tangent positioning. Quick-disconnect type mandrel rods are supplied.

(8) Wiper Die Holder. A wiper die holder is provided to use wiper dies to produce wrinkle-free bends with minimum distortion. It provides for horizontal, longitudinal, and vertical adjustment.

(9) Tube Positioning Device. A tube-positioning device is provided. It consists of a data input keyboard, automatic collet equipped carriage, and all necessary electrical controls. Distance between bends, degree of bend, and planes of bend are input through the keyboard along with springback factors. The control includes a display feature and full editing capabilities. The system is capable of displaying operating and programming instructions in an easily understandable form.

(10) Base. The base structure has adequate strength and rigidity to support the components mounted thereon and has the stability required to maintain tool alignment when used at full capacity. The base and oil reservoirs are integral.

(11) Electrical System. The HTBM requires a three phase, 220-Volt Alternating Current (VAC), 60-hertz electrical power source and draws no more than 33 amperes of current. The unit is designed to withstand voltage fluctuations of +10 percent and frequency fluctuations of +5 percent without damage.

(12) Hydraulic System. The hydraulic system is a manifold type to minimize maintenance and facilities repair. An electric motor driven pump provides hydraulic pressure. All lines, fittings, valves, and other parts of the hydraulic system, including the manifold, are designed to withstand all pressures, surges, and stresses imposed by 200 percent of the rated pressure of the system. A filtration system is provided to prevent particles larger than 25 microns from entering the valves. Gages are installed to show hydraulic fluid level and hydraulic pressures.

(13) Numerical Control System. The numerical control system includes memory storage, program data edit, and display capability. The control directs the machine functions from stored part number program data entered by using the Manual Data Input Keyboard.

(14) Operating Controls. The operating control provides the ability to store bend programs for future use. When the angle of bend, plane of bend, and distance between bends data is input into the machine and a good part is made, the control has the capability to store that data, plus the springback factors, under an assigned numerical part number. When that part number is encountered again by the operator, it can be recalled. This data is retained in the programmable electronic control. The solid state, non-volatile storage module can store up to 50 different part programs. The control is on a movable stand to optimize operator efficiency and provide the greatest mobility for safe positioning of the control. The control includes diagnostics to verify proper operation of the electronic controller and the output and input functions of the machine. It also has the ability for solid state, non-volatile storage of up to 50 part programs.

(15) Manual Controls. In the event that the programmable electronic control or any of the electronic components are malfunctioning, the machine is capable of making parts in the manual mode. Dials and scales are provided to accurately position each axis. These are entirely separate from the programmable electronic control to provide totally independent operating capability from the electronic control.

b. Major Components, Shipboard. The shipboard bending machine consists of a base and cover subassembly, angle indicator assembly, hydraulic cylinder subassembly, adjusting screw and handle subassembly, and the clamp arm subassembly. The shipboard bending machine consists of the following components.

(1) Powered drive. A chain and sprocket are powered by a separate hydraulic unit.

(2) Hydraulic Unit. A separate stand-alone pump provides 10,000 pounds per square inch of adjustable hydraulic pressure. The Hydraulic Unit is driven by a 1-1/2 horsepower electric motor (120 VAC, 60 hertz, single phase) and provides 45 cubic inches of hydraulic pressure per minute delivery maximum.

(3) Maximum Bend Angle. The maximum bend angle is 180 degrees with standard dies. (The bend arm will actually bend to 195 degrees to provide springback compensation.)

(4) Degree of Bend Control. The degree of bend control is adjustable in one-degree increments from 0 to 195 degrees.

(5) Bend Arm Return. The bend arm return will position the bending machine spring return to zero after the completion of a bend.

(6) Clamping. The clamp die and pressure die use speed screws to adjust the clamping pressure.

I. ONBOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development

a. Maintenance Training Improvement Program. Training associated with this system is not covered by the Maintenance Training Improvement Program (MTIP) criteria.

b. Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System. The Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System (AMTCS) will provide career path training to the Sailor or Marine from their initial service entry to the end of their military career. AMTCS is planned to be an integrated system that will satisfy the training and administrative requirements of both the individual and the organization. The benefits will be manifested in the increased effectiveness of the technicians and the increased efficiencies of the management of the training business process. By capitalizing on technological advances and integrating systems and processes where appropriate, the right amount of training can be provided at the right time, thus meeting the Chief of Naval Operation's mandated "just-in-time" training approach.

Included in the AMTCS development effort is the Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System - Software Module that provides recording of training [Electronic Training Jacket], and a Feedback system. The core functionality of these AMTCS tools are based and designed around the actual maintenance-related tasks the technicians perform, and the tasks are stored and maintained in a Master Task List data bank. These tools are procured and fielded with appropriate Commercial Off-The-Shelf hardware and software, i.e. Fleet Training Devices - Laptops, PCs, Electronic Classrooms Learning Resource Centers, operating software, and network software and hardware.

Upon receipt of direction from OPNAV (N889H), AMTCS is to be implemented and the new tools integrated into the daily training environment of all participating aviation activities and supporting elements. AMTCS will serve as the standard training system for aviation maintenance training within the Navy and Marine Corps, and is planned to supersede the existing MTIP and Maintenance Training Management and Evaluation Program (MATMEP) programs.
