Power Operated Benders • Model 6 and Model 8
A wide range of standard tooling options are available for bending various shapes of tubing, angle, channel as well as flat stock, round stock and round tubing. Four adjustable stops allow bends with varying degrees to be progressively made. Modernized controls aid operator safety, improve reliablility and provide programmable bends as a standard feature.
PLC controlled bending improves reliability, repeatability, and reduces set up time. The new control package includes an ergonomically positioned two-hand safety switch for added operator safety. An encoder and adjustable "home" position proximity switch provides manual/auto selection with a programmable function. Also included is a "real time" bend angle display and parts counter.
The Di-Acro power bender uses the proven and robust rack and pinion design to rotate the tooling head. The head is actuated with the larger, now standard 4" bore cylinder. The self-contained hydraulic power unit with larger 10 gallon reservoir provides additional cooling. A variable volume, pressure-compensated vain pump provides volume control for bending speed. A double solenoid directional valve replaces the manual valve for improved reliability and repeatability.
