Bus Bar Bending MachineMolds Explained
Busbar bending systems are produced to facilitate the bending of copper busbars for use in Switchgears and electrical panels, these systems exist in 4 types:
1- Manual Busbar Bending Tools
2- Hydraulic Busbar Bending Tools
3- Simple Hydraulic Busbar Bending Machine
4- Professional Busbar Bending Machine
In manual bending tools, the operator performs the bending process with their own hand, and this method is more suitable for small sizes of copper busbars. In this method, very simple bends can be created and the size of the bend is clear and measurable with the naked eye. The accuracy of the operation in this method depends on the skill of the operator.
In hydraulic bending tools, different conditions govern the accuracy and repeatability, but the operator needs less force to do the work. In addition to the bending head, this type of bender requires a pump model (manual-foot-electric-gasoline) to provide hydraulic power. This type of tool is suitable for places without electricity and for small workshops.
The simple hydraulic busbar bending machine is a suitable device for small places and workshops that need simple bends.In this device, angles are measured by a digital ruler. In these devices, the clamps are usually V-shaped and do not calculate the reversibility property and make the bend in one step. Based on this, the operator must consider possible errors and find a way to compensate for them.
The professional BusBar Bending Machine is suitable for professional manufacturers. The rollers installed in the bending section prevent any fraction during the bending process. This device has a “reversibility compensation” system that performs the process in two steps to calculate the reversibility of the copper busbar and brings the user to her desired angle.This is the reason why we are faced with different needs and orders in the field of panel making in the area of copper busbar bending.
One of the pioneer Hydraulic Busbar Bending Machine Manufacturer Companiesis PAYAPRESS Industrial Company which has a complete range of products in this field. Busbar bending machines of this company have fitted into “BE” series which divides into 4 machines; Two machines with Automatic metering system and Two with Handy metering system which Two could operate on aluminum and copper busbars up to 120×12 mm and Two of them up to 160×15 mm. Automatic ones are (HBC-BE160 ES, HBC-BE120 ES) and Handy ones are (HBC-BE160 EH, HBC-BE120 EH).PAYAPRESS busbar bending machines are all equipped with “Spring Back Compensation System” which is explained above to calculate bends with high accuracy. All machines have double acting hydraulic system, 3600 pulse encoder and can be equipped with electrical metering system to create series of high-precision bends.
Sometimes in electrical panels, there is a need to bend aluminum or copper busbars in shapes different than simple bends. In those cases, operators require Special bending molds such as Edge-bending mold, Z-shape bending mold and Twist bending mold. These are some of the most popular busbar bending molds of PAYAPRESS company manufactures which at the end we have explained about below.
Different Types of Busbar Bender Machine Molds
1- Edge Bending Mold:
In the switchboard industry, it is sometimes necessary to bend the busbar from the edge, especially in electrical switches that require more space for connections. The edge bending mold is a very good solution for this problem and can also be easily installed on a professional Busbar Bender Machine.
2- Z-shape Bending Mold:
In some drawings, designers need two bends close to each other and it is not possible to obtain this bend with simple bending molds, so they can get a great result by using the Z-shape mold. The Z-shape mold is designed and built according to the applicant’s drawings.
3- Twist Bending Mold: In some cases, the connection direction of the busbar is not in the same direction and most operators have to use several pieces of busbar, but by using the Twist Bending mold, they can turn the copper busbar to their desired degree. This Twist bending mold, which is installed on the professional PAYAPRESS Copper Busbar Bending machine, twists the 60×10 busbars up to 90 degrees. This mold is also known as the Twist Bending Mold.
