Digital Bending Bench BGD-5.1 Ref.No. 45640

BGD-5.1 is the ideal bending machine for small series of busbars and individual bending work.

During bending operation the digital angle measurement with full automatic spring back compensation, will ensure outstanding accuracy of +/-0.25 degrees. The automatic length stop, will travel up to 800 mm, positioning your bus bar within seconds and a precision of 0.5 mm. Last but not least, the integrated power pack takes care of convincing cycle times, at only 11.5 sec. for a full 90 degree bend including spring back compensation.

The BGD-5.1 has a USB interface to which optional a PC can be connected. There is the possibility to program serial parts either directly on the machine or from your PC. No CNC, or whatsoever programming skills are requested, but only the Novobend Software. Even complicated busbars can be created using the Software Novobend and are displayed graphically on your PC before starting the initial bending operation.

Offset-Bending-Tools Ref.No. 31671 (small), Ref.No. 31188 (large)
Two different Offset-Bending-Tools enable very short and 100% parallel offset bendings for your switchgear. One for copper busbar up to 80 x 8 mm (small) and the second for 120 x 10 mm busbar (large).

Flat-Bending-Tool Ref.No. 31221
With our unique Flat-Bending-Tool copper busbars up to 50 x 10 mm can be 90° flat bended. Especially on grounding busbars in the switchgear, many 90° bolt connections can be saved.

Supplementary-Bender-BGD Ref.No.31850
The L-Bending-Tool allows extremely short L-bends with only 25 mm leg length. Thus, even on switchgear with very tight installation space, circuit breaker connections can be made with ease. Indispensable for modern switchgear or panel manufacturers.

Z-Bending-Tool Ref.No. 45470 (small), Ref.No. 45810 (large)
By using the bending extension "Z" special step bendings can be produced. For this purpose we offer two different options. With the smaller step bending tool can be bent a 90° "Z" in copper with a maximum of 120 x 6 mm and an internal dimension (inside to inside) of 27 mm. The larger step bending tool allows bends of a 90° "Z" in copper material with a maximum of 100 x 10 mm and an internal dimension (inside to inside) of 30 mm.


Software package "NovoBend"
With our additional software package "NovoBend" bending programs can be edited on any external PC.
