The TRIDAN® Model MB-2-36 is a Durable heavy duty bender that is precision build to last while making Accurate Production Quality Bends. This manually operated tube bender is designed for copper and aluminum tube having outside diameters’ between 3/16″ (4.76mm) and 7/8″ (22.22mm). The MB-2-36 bends one tube per cycle and is capable of producing multiple bends in the same tube with a minimum tangent length between successive bends.
The MB-2-36 is constructed on heavy-duty weldment base on which are mounted the Bend Head and the adjustable Follower Block Retainer – Mandrel Rod Support Weldment. The Bend Head rotates on twin precision ball bearings and features a calibrated protractor with adjustable mechanical stops and settings for bend angles between 0 and 180 degrees. The lower bend die retainer is fixed to the bend head with the upper bend die retainer pivot mounted to retract vertically when bend hand is moved upward.
All pivot points of this adjustable eccentric clamping mechanism are fitted with sealed needle bearings to minimize clamping force requirements. The Follower Block Retainer – Mandrel Rod Support Weldment is key-way mounted to be weldment base, and is adjustable for various tube diameters and bend radii.
The Model MB-2-36 Bender was designed with the unique requirements of heat transfer coil production in mind, and their versatility make them particularly adapted to the production of bends for many air conditioning and refrigeration applications.
