Product Highlights

  Increased versatility for your equipment

Ercolina pipe and tube notching machines are now capable of being converted
to a conventional belt grinder in addition to their superb notching capabilities.
The accessory quickly and easily adapts the notching machine into a belt
grinder for general shop use. The accessory includes a rubber-faced contact
wheel for rapid material removal, an adjustable tool rest and one abrasive
grinding belt. EN100-KS2 is the accessory number for the EN100 machine
and EN180-KS2 is for the EN180 machine. Efficient and innovative accessories
have become synonymous with Ercolina, the trusted name in metal fabrication

  Rotary Draw vs. Roll Bending – How to decide?

Most applications are well-suited for either rotary draw bending or roll bending
but not both. As a general rule, if your desired bend radius is greater than 5D
(5 times the diameter or your pipe or tube) look at a roll bender—5D and
smaller is a rotary draw application.



Tech Tips

  Quality mandrel bends every time with 030 Mandrel!

When setting up mandrel bending tooling, the most common mistake operators/
technicians make is over tightening the pressure die system.

Excessive pressure die force causes poor bends and unnecessary wear on
mandrel tooling and bending machine components.

Use the following trick for your initial setup and your boss will think you are the
new mandrel bending guru in town!

Manually rotate the machine’s mandrel center former and clamping die system
as shown, so it is not in interference with this adjustment. Advance mandrel into
bending position and slide the pipe or tube onto mandrel. Loosen the bolt securing
pressure die and tie bar bracket. Next, through the machines control panel, manually
advance the hydraulic pressure die system inward to the operating position.

To ensure proper pressure die force, rotate the tube or pipe simultaneously by
hand while rotating the machine pressure die handwheel, advancing the pressure
die inward, until the tube or pipe can no longer be rotated by hand. Tighten the bolt
securing pressure die and tie bar bracket. Open the pressure die, remove the tube
and return all machine components to home position. Bend a trial piece and see
the results for yourself!
