New Small Diameter Hairpin Bender
The new Small Diameter Vertical Bend Hairpin Bender (SD-VBHB) from Burr Oak Tool Inc. features throughput capacities of up to 4,000 hairpins per hour or 70% higher production due to eight parts per cycle, versus seven, and a faster cycle time. This small diameter hairpin bender delivers cost savings via reduced scrap, perishable tooling costs, labor costs and floor space. The machine utilizes less floor space due to a more compact design, with a size reduction of 102 sq. ft. (9.5 sq. m). Typical payback is under 2 years.
The new bender handles tubes up to 3/8" (10 cm) diameter, making it a great choice for air conditioning/refrigeration applications. Maintenance time is also reduced with a servo hitch feed eliminating the belt feed used on previous design, which required additional care and attention for proper operation. Other features include intuitive operator interface using the touch screen and independent tube clamping for variations in tube diameter without causing clamp marks on the hairpins.
