A-Series Machines

Model A-1

Pipe & Tube Bending Machine

The Model A-1 is the smallest bending machine manufactured by Pedrick. We call it “The Small Wonder”. It was designed in response to requests for a bench-top bender for smaller materials. It is very popular for hydraulic tubing, furniture tubing (1 IN OD), and a variety of manufacturing applications requiring bending of small metal rods and straps. This bending machine is manufactured with the same high quality components as its larger counterparts. We use heat treated alloy steel forgings, spherical roller bearings, NEMA 12 electrics, and right-angle, helical gear drives. The bender is shown bending 7/8 IN OD CREW tubing to a 2 5⁄8 IN (3D) centerline radius. In addition it is shown with optional auxiliary limit switches and a selector switch for multiple angle selection.

Model A-3

Pipe & Tube Bending Machine

The Model A-3 is the smallest of the floor mounted bending machines manufactured by Pedrick. Like all Pedrick bending machines, it is a rotary head compression bender that is driven with a mechanical drive. It produces 9,000 IN pounds of bending moment. It is capable of bending 1 1⁄4 IN schedule 40 pipe. It is popular for many furniture and extrusion bending applications. This model shares the same platform as the Model A-5 shown. They both provide a very large bending capacity with a small footprint.

Model A-5

Pipe & Tube Bending Machine

The Model A-5 Bending machine has the same housing as the Model A-3, with heavier gears, bearings and a 5 HP gear drive. It has the capacity to bend 2 IN schedule 40 IPS and #12 rebar. This machine is very popular for handrail applications. Pedrick benders can be tooled to bend a variety of materials including channels, rectangular tube, structurals, and many others. The adjacent bender and insert show an application for bending 1 IN OD solid bar stock to 1/2 IN inside radius. These parts are used for lifting eyes for concrete products.

Model A-7

Pipe & Tube Bending Machine

The PEDRICK Model A-7 is our most popular bending machine. It is a heavy duty version of the Model A-5. The Model A-7’s primary application is for bending 1/2 IN – 2 IN schedule 80 pipe for small bore process piping for plant maintenance and many original equipment manufacturing (OEM) applications. The Model A-7 is also used to bend heavy wall tube and structural sections. Pipe & tube bends produced on a 3D bend radius meet American Petroleum Institute (API) & ASME B3 specifications for ovality (flattening) and wall thinning. Pipe & tube bends produced on a 5D bend radius meet Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) & United States Navy (USN) specifications.
