The new SD-VBHB small-diameter vertical hairpin bender from Burr Oak Tool Inc. produces eight parts per cycle for a throughput capacity of up to 4,000 hairpins per hour. The compact machine, with a size reduction of 102 sq. ft. from the previous design, uses less floor space.
The new bender handles tubes up to 0.375 in. dia., making it suitable for air-conditioning and refrigeration applications. A servo hitch feed eliminates the belt feed used on the previous design.
Other features include an intuitive operator interface using the touchscreen and independent tube clamping to handle diameter variations without causing clamp marks on the hairpins.
