Ben Pearson Model BPC-09
Huth / Ben Pearson is excited to announce the new BPC-09, combining Huth's and Ben Pearson's strengths, quality design and features in one
The BPC-09 is a manually operated bender using a knee control for bending and the Huth I-beam construction with the maintenance-free guide plate. This bender is our
new low-cost alternative for shops just starting up, adding a second bender or replacing an old bender.
The BPC-09 package includes the 62898 Super 110 die package. The combination of another great bender and a great tooling package make our Huth / Ben Pearson family of
benders even better. The bender without tooling is Model BP-08.
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 techniques 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 great
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 repeated
On the other end of the swage box is the expanding cylinder. Using segmented tooling and Huths unique AccuSizer system, you can quickly and efficiently create slip
fits, flares, ball joint connections, AND MORE! Custom Solutions Available Upon Request.
