Extrusion Benders

A two-axis, PLC controlled bending machine provides for a unique functionality in the tube bending world. Designed specifically to bend parts that do not require a rotation, these machines are ideal for fabrication of window and door frames as well as similar parts shapes. This hybrid bender design is powered by a hydraulic bending system and electric servo control for the Y axis. The pusher style carriage and unique gripper system can move the raw material easily without excessive grip pressure or marking of the part. Special tooling can allow for bending two extrusions/profiles at the same time. Available in either draw or compression bending styles, the Pines Extrusion Bender series offers a unique solution for your specialized bending needs.
