What is Rotary Compression ?
PEDRICK benders are manufactured to give many years of trouble free service. Heat treated alloy steel shafting, spherical roller bearings, massive bull gears and pinions allow our benders to meet the most demanding industrial requirements. Whether they are used in a high production, plant maintenance or OEM application, our benders will produce cost effective bends year after year.
Easy to Maintain
PEDRICK benders require minimal maintenance. They do not make use of hydraulics or pneumatics. High efficiency helical-bevel gear drives with TEFC motors that require minimal maintenance. With a little grease applied to the bearings, our benders will produce bends with virtually no maintenance, year after year.
Easy to Operate
An operator with minimum skill can produce high quality bends with a PEDRICK bender as efficiently as the highest skilled worker. Setting up to produce accurate bends is quick and easy and is accomplished with standard hand tools.
While PEDRICK benders are used to bend pipe and tube. Our bending machines can be tooled to bend solid round bar stock (hot & cold), structural sections (channels, angle iron etc.), extruded and roll-formed sections. PEDRICK benders can used to cold bend almost anything except thin wall tubing. PEDRICK benders can bend many things that are not considered bendable.
Changing tooling (dies) on a PEDRICK bender is straight forward. It can be accomplished with standard hand tools in a few minutes. The center spindle can be removed so smaller tooling sets, for smaller bend radii, can be used.
Our Model A-1 can produce a 90° bend in four seconds. The Model D-15 can produced a 90° bend in 4 IN schedule 80 pipe in forty seconds. In most cases the handling time of the material being bent is the limiting factor.
Our customers frequently ask us for a portable bender. We can provide a machine that is mounted on casters, steel pallet, and with lifting holes. While a permanent foundation is desirable, our benders are also mounted on trucks and on board ships.
PEDRICK benders are limit switch controlled for duplicate bending. Digital controls are also available as an option. Our benders can be supplied with automatic reversing for high production applications. They can also be supplied with manual controls for job shops and plant maintenance applications. Bend angle accuracy is +/- .5 degree. We can adjust the dies for the inherent radial springback of the material. When required, we can maintain an accuracy of it +/- .030 IN on the bending radius. The bend radius accuracy can be affected by the material being bent.
