PHI 246 Precision Bending Machine


With this powerful 246, you can virtually eliminate the need for welded elbows in your pipe systems and cut labor costs by as much as 70 percent. Even greater savings can be achieved by eliminating the need to inspect and test the welds.

The 246 can accurately duplicate welded elbows by bending up to 4" schedule 80 pipe to a minimum 2 D centerline radius. Wall thinning is controlled with a pressure die booster that moves the follower die forward reducing drag on the pipe. In addition, a clamp booster forces the pipe into the bend area. Further control over wall thinning is obtained with our infinitely variable speed control for the bend arm.

PHI's user-friendly programmable digital controller, the DT5600, is specifically designed for bending. It is laid out logically for proper bending sequencing. It has a capacity for 100 programs consisting of one to 10 bends per program. One of the many versatile features is the ability to switch readily from a manual bend mode to a semiautomatic mode.

Features of the PHI 246 Precision Bending Machine

The 246 is equipped with an automatic lubrication system that keeps all necessary machine parts lubricated. A carriage assembly hydraulically powers the distance-between-bend movement and the plane of bend movement to speed production and to help prevent operator fatigue.

The 246 is an ideal bending machine for mass production of large diameter pipe and tube where quality of the bend and maximum control over wall thickness and ovality are important.

PHI 270 Precision Bending Machine

The PHI 270 Precision Bending Machine is a powerful hydraulic bending machine for large tubes (up to 7" OD) and pipe (up to 6" IPS Schedule 80).

With this powerful 270, you can virtually eliminate the need for welded elbows in your pipe systems and cut labor costs by as much as 70 percent. Greater savings can be achieved by eliminating the need to inspect and test the welds.

The 270 can accurately duplicate welded elbows by bending up to schedule 80 pipe to a minimum 1.5D centerline radius. Wall thinning is controlled with a pressure die booster that moves the follower die forward reducing drag on the pipe. In addition, a clamp booster forces the pipe into the bend area. Further control over wall thinning is obtained with our infinitely variable speed control for the bend arm.

PHI's user-friendly programmable digital control, the DT5600, is specifically designed for bending. The clear digital control layout ensures proper bending sequencing. It has a capacity for 100 programs.

PHI 295 Semi-Automatic Precision Booster Bending Machine

PHI revolutionizes the fabrication of elbows and fittings with the PHI 295 Semi-Automatic Bending Machine. Now you can automatically fabricate 2" through 8" IPS elbows and fittings (1D minimum centerline radius). Forget about welding, polishing and X-rays. Save 30-50 percent on material costs over cold forming, and reduce labor costs by up to 85 percent (especially with thin wall pipe).

The machine typically takes less than an hour to set up. Once the PHI 295 Semi-Automatic Bending Machine is set up, simply load the pipe and push the start button. The bender automatically clamps the pipe and bends it. Your production will skyrocket from the start, and so will your savings in labor and material costs.
