There are many components of a manual rebar bending machine, and some of these components include the following:
The first component is the bend die, also known as the radius die, and is an essential part of the machine. It contains a tube that allows the bending of the metal, so choosing this die carefully is very important.
The clamp die is a clamp that leads to a pressing tube on the bend die, and it holds the pipe or the bar from slipping away and tightly secures it.
The pressure die, as the name suggests, is a component that adds pressure on the object or rod that has to be bent and formed into something. The role of the pressure die is to ensure that the force is maintained to turn the bar against the bend die.
The wiper die comes at the back of the bend die, and it ensures that there are no humps formed in the inner radius.
The process of forming might cause wrinkles to form along the materials subjected to bending; it happens when there are large deformations. However, by adding a wiper die, the wrinkles may be avoided, and hence a smooth surface is obtained.
Mandrel is used in bending aluminum or steel tubes, carrying out the problematic bending task. When tubes of a smaller radius or a thinner size are bent, there is a risk of having an outcome that is not satisfactory enough. In this case, the mandrel helps to be a perfect choice, protecting the tube against collapsing.
