Application of the Month
Reducing tooling costs
When you are using an internal mandrel for bending, the bending force and wear occur on the “nose” and spheres of the mandrel. This area becomes worn over time and can cause the quality of your bends to suffer.
A new option for customers is to replace the one-piece body design with a new, two-piece body system. The two-piece system features a replaceable “nose” section that is coupled with the mandrel spheres. This system is less expensive and still provides excellent, mandrel-quality bends.

Meeting a Success
Great group of enthusiastic participants
Ercolina employees and representatives were pleased to welcome members of the Upper Midwest Chapter of NOMMA (National Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metals Association) on Friday April, 22, at our facility in Davenport, IA.
After brunch and a brief chapter meeting, demonstrations were offered on several Ercolina machines and available software. We hope that all attendees found the meeting informative and worthwhile. Our primary goal was to increase understanding of Ercolina machine operation and availability, and provide resources for any bending questions.
A light lunch was offered before attendees were off for more adventures at Boyler’s Ornamental Iron in Bettendorf, IA.
Remember Ercolina has an expansive showroom stocked with a full line of Ercolina equipment under power. Customer demonstrations are conducted by factory-trained personnel and can be tailored to your unique application. See how an Ercolina machine can produce your new or existing project. Call our sales team today to schedule a demo.
Taking the human factor into account
Why do so many customers become enticed by bending speed? When discussing machine operating speed with any potential customer, it is extremely important to emphasize additional factors that determine actual part production time. These factors include part handling time (loading and unloading of the piece) and material characteristics. Certain materials need to be bent or formed at slower speeds to allow the molecular structure to “flow” and be formed without breakage.
Bending speed is the time it takes the machine to attain a pre-determined position. The human element is NOT accounted for during this calculation.
