Huth HRP1620 Remote Performance 220V Pipe Bender
Huth's NEW Remote Performance Bender, Model HRP-1620 has a new pendant control station that allows you to move while you work.
Run the bender away from the machine (when you have a long tube to support) or work more closely to the bend area by simply moving the controls out of the way and using the knee control pad.
This unit is built on the time-tested HB10/1600 machine platform.
Purchase with any of our tooling packages.
** HRP-1620 shown above with optional tooling package.
The built-in heavy duty swager/expander gives you complete end-finishing capabilities - 1" to 3" tubing on the swager end and 1" to 5½" tubing on the expander end.
With Huth's Accu-Sizer™ automatic bull's-eye expanding system, you'll be able to dial in precise expansions every time.
Pendant Control Station w Knee Control
Slim Knee Control Activation allows you to get closer to your work for quick, precise bending.
An Easy-to-Read Bend Indicator shows how far into a bend you are.
The Easy to Use Pipe Bender
A compression pipe bender is an extremely powerful and versatile tool, but many who have not used one don’t fully appreciate how easy it is to use. When we get people to do their first bend, intimidation tends to fade away and enthusiasm to do more takes over!
There are two ends to the machine … the bending end, and the end-forming end. We’ll focus on the bending end to show just how simple this tool is. There are 3 things you need to know in advance … the distance between bends, the orientation of the desired bend, and the depth of the desired bend.
Plot your distances with a marker: Mark your pipe where you want your bends, working from left to right.
Now turn the bender on … you are almost ready to go: Apply lubrication and set your pipe in the jaws.
Setting a rotation dial to keep oriented: Prior to your 1st bend, setting a rotation dial on the far right end of your pipe, set to zero, will keep you oriented as your progress through multiple bends on each pipe. This is especially important if you are using bending program cards.
Choose Bend radius: Smaller radii give tighter bends, larger radii are more forgiving. Normally smaller tubes utilize smaller radii (larger tubes use larger radii) with a minimum 1.5-2X the tube OD.
Bend to the right depth: Every bender has a depth of bend indicator, and automatic benders let you pre-set the depth of bend. The pointer tells you when you reach your target bend angle.
Basically, that’s it. There are times when a bit more knowledge helps (When do I use a ½ shoe? What do I use for thin-walled material?). But these are compression bender basics for bending with your machine!
