Model 3012 is designed to allow you to bend completely around the bending dies on the same centerline creating smooth, clean
The 3012 offers the convenience of a knee pedal control along with manual and automatic push buttons. A reduced size control panel allows the operator
to get closer to the work area for more precision and less fatigue.
The Smart Automatic Mode features an adjustable return-to home position control. This unique, timesaving feature increases efficiency by assuring fast
and easy transitions between multiple bends. In the automatic mode, the automatic depth-of-bend selector ensures precise bending control through the use of an easy-to-read, easy-to-adjust depth of
Model 3012 comes with a 5 horse power motor and provides 58,000 lbs of bending force.
The heavy duty swager/expander gives you complete end finishing capabilities. The swager end accommodates 1 to 3 inch tubing. The expander end allows
for expansions from 1-1/4 to 4 inch. With the bulls-eye expanding system, you can dial in precise expansions every time.
The 3012 bender uses BEN PEARSON tooling; choose the tooling package that best fits your needs. Bending dies are also available for square

End Forming Wizardry With The Swage Box:
Most Huth and Ben Pearson benders have a long unique looking contraption on one end known as the swage box... It is also featured on our popular 1673
expander/reducer/swaging machine as well. Swage (pronounced swedge) is an uncommon word, and it most commonly refers to forming different shapes with metal tube. The swage box is an extremely handy
device for many tube end forming techniquesÃ¢â¬Â¦ some think of it as almost magical in that it allows the operator to fabricate a myriad of end-forms.
In the swage box, you can do Solid-Tool Expansion with a swage die. The advantage of solid tool expansion is controlled uniformity around the perimeter of the
expansion (a segmented expander has microscopic indentations between the expander fingers).
Tube Diameter Reduction is possible in a swage box. This allows fabrication slip fits where one tube is slid inside the other in a way that appears
practically seamless from the outside.
Creating Flanges And Flares can be done in the swage box with flange and flare tooling. Want a flange that goes 90 degrees out from the tube end?
Simple. Use a 45 degree flare tool to create the 1st 45 degrees, then spin the tool around and push it the remaining 45 degrees until it sticks out perpendicularly from the tube
Doming And Both Male And Female Ball Joint Ends are possible in the swage box. Ball joint connections can be used to help hold two tubes together in a
way that allows some movement at the joint.
One of the keys to forming in the swage box is holding the tube firmly with the collets and collet holder. The forces required to form the new metal shapes are
greatÃ¢â¬Â¦ 25,000 lbs of force exerted across just a few inches of diameter. We have created a cool time-saving accessoryÃ¢â¬Â¦ the dead stop systemÃ¢â¬Â¦ to help people locking in the length when making
On the other end of the swage box is the expanding cylinder. Using segmented tooling and HuthÃ¢â¬â¢s unique AccuSizer system, you can quickly and efficiently create slip
fits, flares, ball joint connections, AND MORE! Custom Solutions Available Upon Request.
