Using the Latest in Pipe Bending and Tube Bending Technology
UNISON 76mm & 130mm ALL-ELECTRIC CNC BENDERS: These benders make high quality parts with their unique capabilities such as high accuracy and repeatability, reduced set-up times, and reduced scrap. Our Unison CNC 76mm Breeze tube bender can bend up to 3" O.D., and the Unison CNC 130mm bender bends up to 5" O.D. Both machines include multi-radius stacking and rolling, and hole punching capabilities. By using all-electric tube bending machines we are able to deliver our customer quality American-made products in a cost effect and time efficient manner. Read Unison's Press Release on Sharpe's purchase of their 130mm all-electric tube bender.
LANG 90mm ALL-ELECTRIC TUBE BENDER: The Lang 90mm all-electric tube bender can bend tube and pipe up to 3-1/2" O.D. and has all the same benefits of our other all-electric tube benders with its multi-radius stacking and rolling capabilities. High accuracy and repeatability along with the reduced set-up times and reduced scrap are not only lean in the manufacturing process but they also greatly reduce customers' costs.
BLM E-TURN BENDER: This all-electric bender can bend pipe or tube up to 1-1/4" O.D. In addition to the many advantages of an all-electric machine, the E-Turn has the widest flexibility because of its in-process right and left bending with fixed and variable radius. It also has increased feasibility of more complex structures.
NISSIN 3D BENDER: This tube bender offers extraordinary advantages over conventional bending machines. A tube is continuously guided through a single die according to the programed specs. This single die technology offers flexibility in part design which is unmatched by other forms of traditional bending.
Advantages over conventional tube bending include:
- Ability to product multi-radii parts without additional tooling
- Little to no distance required between bends
- Tube roundness & thickness are maintained
- Ability to produce angles greater than 180 degrees
Minimal set-up and lead times are achieved for even the most complex parts making this bender ideal for production of prototypes to large volume production.
CNC TWIN HEAD COMPRESSION BENDER: The CNC Twin Head Compression bender bends up to 1-1/2" O.D. This bender forms two bends simultaneously, an dis ideal for high speed manufacturing of symmetrical shapes. Handles, furniture, and frames of many varieties are typical applications for this type of bending.
Bend Die Tooling
We offer a very large inventory of tooling with over 600 bending dies. This allows our customers to save on tooling costs. In addition to our already furnished inventory, we also have a tool and die design department, ready to meet any of your custom die needs. The tool and die department can build your die in a cost efficient manner with shortened lead times.
