Baileigh offers a line of metal bender accessories that complement our line of tube benders. These items are not necessary to run your machine, but they will save the fabricator thousands of dollars throughout the life of the machine in setup cost, loss of material, and speed of production. Thus, for the investment these tube and pipe bender accessories are highly recommended depending on your application and the model you have or will soon acquire.
The angle finder or rotational dial line comes in handy with any bender on the market that isn't using a 2-axis positioning table. The fabricator simply puts the devise on the trailing end of the material starting at zero degrees. When the first bend is complete and it needs to be rotated for example to 45 degrees upward, the operator simple watches the angle finder until the tubing has been rotated to the desired angle, then they commence the next bend. When there is a need for creating angles on varying planes, this is a great devise to have to save material and time.
We offer the 2-axis bender positioning table in varying lengths that fit our computer programmed RDB models. This devise allows the fabricator to do higher production runs. This unit clamps the end of the trailing piece of tubing or pipe into the chuck. There are also linear stops that can be set up for the beginning of each consecutive bend required. Thus, the operator would create bend one, then the bend is rotated to the plane of angle desired by turning a hand wheel that is coupled to a scaled gearbox, finally the positioning carriage is moved forward over a hard stop for bend two, etc. etc. This 2-axis positioning table saves a lot of material and production time and helps with repeatability when doing large runs that require multiple bends on varying planes.
The tube bending software comes in several versions and is perfect for laying out the sequence of bends before you touch a stick of material. This saves a lot of time and material during setup on any bender. It is highly recommended that the fabricator make this small investment in the tube bending software with the purchase of any of our rotary draw or mandrel tubing Benders.
The universal bend plate is a great addition to our models RDB with electronic programmable controllers. Coupled to those model machines, the fabricator can bend flat, bar, or round bar left or right into many different configurations. Super tight left or right bends can be put in 1/8" X 1" mild steel for shelving or ornamental applications, or 360 degrees for eyelets, and much more. Easy to move pins and tooling allow for hundreds of different configurations and applications.
