Crushing it at Ercolina
This trailer manufacturer needed special tooling to fabricate the support structure for the outer skin of their trailers. These pieces will also be used as a conduit to hide and route wiring. By modifying a stock R170 square former Ercolina was able to save the customer money and lead time with this innovative solution. 2” x 1” mild steel is shown being crush bent on Ercolina’s TB76. At the end of this video you can compare the original bend sample we received from this customer with the new bend – note the improvement in bend quality when using a modified former.
Did You Know…
Time is money!
…All elbows are bends but all bends are not elbows. An elbow is a standard fitting but bends are custom fabricated. You can save time and money with an Ercolina bender vs. purchasing and welding elbows.
Large Capacity Packed into 110V Power
Ercolina’s SB48 Super Bender is an ideal choice for light production and portable job-site use. The convenient 110 volt power supply makes it capable of bending virtually anywhere.
Standard features include a Microprocessor control capable of storing 30 programs with 9 bends per program, Ercolina’s quick change tooling system, patented swing away vise and digital display of bend angle as well as spring back compensation.
When paired with the optional A40/P, two axis positioner, and bending software, the SB48 is an excellent choice for handrail fabricators and tube chassis component suppliers.
Simple, easy to use and loaded with features make the SB48 and Ercolina the “trusted” name for pipe, tube and profile bending equipment.
Protect Your Investment!
Always know the capacity of your Ercolina bending machine. Avoid potential machine damage when you are bending close to or at the stated capacity of your machine by using a roller counterbending die and tie bar accessory.
Available for round and square profiles, Ercolina roller counterbending dies and tie bar accessory should always be used when bending heavy wall profiles and solid materials.
