Application of the Month

  Crushing it at Ercolina


This trailer manufacturer needed special tooling to fabricate the support structure
for the outer skin of their trailers. These pieces will also be used as a conduit to
hide and route wiring. By modifying a stock R170 square former Ercolina was able
to save the customer money and lead time with this innovative solution. 2” x 1”
mild steel is shown being crush bent on Ercolina’s TB76. At the end of this video
you can compare the original bend sample we received from this customer with
the new bend - note the improvement in bend quality when using a modified former.


Did You Know...

  Time is money!

...All elbows are bends but all bends are not elbows. An elbow is a standard
fitting but bends are custom fabricated. You can save time and money with
an Ercolina bender vs. purchasing and welding elbows.



Product Highlights

  Large Capacity Packed into 110V Power

Ercolina’s SB48 Super Bender is an ideal choice for light production and portable
job-site use.  The convenient 110 volt power supply makes it capable of bending
virtually anywhere.

Standard features include a Microprocessor control capable of storing 30 programs
with 9 bends per program, Ercolina’s quick change tooling system, patented swing
away vise and digital display of bend angle as well as spring back compensation.

When paired with the optional A40/P, two axis positioner, and bending software,
the SB48 is an excellent choice for handrail fabricators and tube chassis component
Simple, easy to use and loaded with features make the SB48 and Ercolina the
“trusted” name for pipe, tube and profile bending equipment.

Tech Tips

  Protect Your Investment!

Always know the capacity of your Ercolina bending machine. Avoid potential
machine damage when you are bending close to or at the stated capacity
of your machine by using a roller counterbending die and tie bar accessory.

Available for round and square profiles, Ercolina roller counterbending dies
and tie bar accessory should always be used when bending heavy wall profiles
and solid materials.
