BendPak BB-1 Blue-Bullet Bender with BB-1 Die Package
BendPak BB-1, with its superior performance and simple operation, the Blue Bullet BB-1 exhaust pipe bender will hold a special place in your shop. We took our standard bender and equipped it with a knee valve and degree plate combination for a straightforward, rugged design that will never let you down. The knee operated valve gives you precise control and hands-free bending capabilities. Simply push the lever to the left to advance the bending die and then to the right to retract it. Heavy-duty cast iron construction guarantees that the valve will stand up to years of heavy use.
Quick-change bending dies
Who has time to waste? Not you. Especially when you have a car in the air and others lined up. Our competitors tried for years to come up with an effective way to swiftly switch out the bending dies. But BendPak actually did it. Our twist-lock tooling and quick-change bending dies are so effective that they are copied across the entire industry. We choose to think of imitation as the best form of flattery, but you should make sure that you get your innovative equipment from the originator and not a knock-off.
180° bending capacity
You told us you needed a bender with an extremely deep bending capability. Is a U-shape deep enough? Thought so. Be sure to ask for our 180° dies if you’re planning to bend more than 170°. You’ll get perfect deep bends on a 5″ radius, without pipe sticking or hang ups. That’s because we use an exclusive relief cut design on our bending dies to help maintain the pipe’s uniformity throughout the bend cycle and eliminate excessive crimping or deformation.
Clamp less swager
All Bend-Pak benders are equipped with our exclusive clamp less swager which puts out an incredible force of over 30,000 lbs. for quick and precise end forming. The clamp less swager provides rapid set-up time and a high degree of accuracy for I.D. expansions, O.D. expansions, slip-fits, flares, ball-joints, reductions and manifold flanges. All tooling is quick release. Take a close look at the clamp assembly. You won’t see a cumbersome, antiquated vise in our clamp assembly. What you will find is American ingenuity at its finest—the narrow hinged collars simply drop into position and allow for flare tubing ends as close as 3″ from a bend. Don’t worry about troublesome slippage either. The more pressure you put on the clamps, the tighter they grip.
