Eliminating Elbows and Reducing Cost
To reduce downtime, this customer decided to bend his own pipe rather than purchasing and soldering joints. You can see in this video how quickly and easily Ercolina’s Erco 76 3 Axis CNC Bender can bend 2½″ copper pipe. A bent joint is less costly and labor-intensive than a purchased elbow. In addition, bending allows more flexibility in design and layout.

How Much Money can Section 179 Save You?
… Under Section 179, a qualifying taxpayer can choose to treat the cost of certain property as an expense and deduct it in the year the property is placed in service instead of depreciating it over several years. Section 179 offers small businesses a great opportunity to maximize purchasing power. The current deduction limit is $500,000. This means businesses can deduct the full cost of qualifying equipment from their 2014 taxes, up to $500,000. Most of the equipment your business will purchase, finance or lease qualifies for the deduction. The equipment must be purchased and put into use by midnight, 12/31/2014.

Expand Your Capabilities
Often, the first bending machine purchased for fabricators is a rotary draw bender. Ercolina offers a complete line of open, rotary draw benders as well as internal mandrel benders in NC and CNC versions. However, large radius bending jobs are often passed over due to available equipment options. The CE series of angle rolling machines by Ercolina provides a cost effective solution to large radius bending. Starting with the CE35, (a single phase, portable, work center) and ranging up to the CE100 , (a robust, 3 roll drive machine with capacity up to 4” angle), Ercolina produces fixed pyramid rolling machines with higher section modulus ratings and packed with standard features others consider as options. In addition, accessories are available to increase the versatility of the CE ring roll machines. The combination of an Ercolina bender teamed with and Ercolina ring roll machine will not only increase your shop’s versatility but most importantly your profitability.
