This equipment has been studied and designed to perform bending tests on steel bars for reinforced concrete.
– Max. piston load: 160 kN
– Max. piston stroke: 550 mm
– Piston speed adjustable from 0 to 6 mm/s
– Power supply: 230V 1ph 50 Hz 1500W
– Dimensions: 1540x800x1300 mm
– Weight: 350 kg approx.
The machine can perform two types of test:
– bending the specimen through 180° only with
mandrels up to max. 96 mm included.
– bending the specimen through 90° and then straightening it
again up to a minimum of 20° only with mandrels over 96 mm
This bending machine is composed of a rugged frame supporting a
beam having a cylinder with relevant load piston fixed on it, being
activated by an hydraulic cell complete with speed adjuster for the
piston, direction control valve, max. pressure valve, control gauge.
The whole is cased to protect every single component from the
dust, and the operator from any possible danger. A small bowl has
been fitted under the beam, where the steel bar is bent.
Two contrasting rollers are fitted on the beam. They may easily be
adjusted in distance to be in accordance with the Standards concerning
bars having diameter between 5 and 40 mm.
Fixing and changing the mandrels on top of the thrust cylinder is
easy and practical and grants the operator a perfect interchangeability of the same. A device prevents the unlocking of the bar under
test from the relevant rollers and the contrasting mandrel both
during the bending and the straightening operation.
The machine accepts bars up to Ø 40 mm and is supplied complete
with two series of rollers, having respectively Ø mm 50 and 100.
The mandrels, the mandrel-holders and the brackets are not
included in the standard supply and have to be ordered separately.
