Bending machines are one of the most basic tools used in busbar processing . They are used for bending busbars made of copper or aluminum. The bending can be either lateral or axial. ERKO has in its offer three high quality tools in this group.
The first machine is a bender-puncher HGD 125, as the name suggests it is for bending as well as hole punching. It is useful in busbar processing of busbars with the width from 30 to 125 mm and the thickness from 5 to 10 mm. An electric bending sensor enables repeatable bending. It works with electric hydraulic units produced by ERKO e.g. pump H 800 or aggregates AH 100, AH 500 and AH 550.
The second machine is the bending machine for axial bending of busbars HSK 5010. The axial bending is commonly called “propeller like” and it is possible with the rail width from 20 to 50 mm and the thickness range of the rail is from 3 to 10 mm. The working pressure is 380 bar, while the weight is 42 kg. It works with electric hydraulic units produced by ERKO. It is equipped with:
- – electric sensor which turns off the device after the use and enables repeatable bending at the right angle,
- – spacer insert for rotatable handle for busbars with the thickness up to 5 mm,
- – adjustable busbar width bracket .
The third device is the bending machine for lateral bending HGP 5010. It is suitable for Cu and Al busbars with the width from 20 to 50 mm and the thickness from 5 to 10 mm. It is equipped with jest we:
- – bending insert,
- – set of rollers: two supporting rollers, stamp with punch clamp.
It is possible to order rollers made of aluminum for Al busbars. It works with electric hydraulic units produced by ERKO, and its working force is 190 kN.
