Electric CNC Tube & Pipe Benders

The world of electric benders has a new leader. We combined enhanced controls with easy setup and operation, then applied these features to the Pines bender product line. The results are the new e40 and e75. They represent a ground-up electric bender design that builds on our foundation of rugged and durable dependability, and adds the latest in bending technology. Features include programmable clamp and pressure die pressures, quick change tooling, roll forming capability, carriage push for shorter grip lengths and X and Z axis head shift for multi-stack tooling. And they’re quiet, too. Get ready to step into a new world of bending technology – a new leader is on the board.
