Vertical Compression NC Tube Benders

The Pines vertical compression benders are unmatched in speed and versatility. Simple to use and simple to maintain these machines are pound for pound the most productive in the industry. With production rates of 1000-1500 bends per hour they pay for themselves in no time and continue to make parts for decades to come.
