BendPak Unveils Blue-Bullet Pipe Bender Series

BendPak has released its Blue-Bullet series pipe benders, based on the company’s original “Burgundy-Bullet” series that was introduced in 1979.

Designed to help fabricators reach production targets with ease and precision, Blue-Bullet pipe benders come with one of two quick-change bending die packages to handle any job. The company said the pipe bender has a full 180° bending capacity to give any pipe a true U-bend with a 5-inch radius. For normal bends, every Blue-Bullet is also capable of handling a minimum 3-1/3-inch bend radius with the correct die set.

The BendPak Blue-Bullet features a knee valve and degree plate combination for precise, straightforward bending, according to the company. The pipe benders have an industrial-strength, long-stroke cylinder, so pusher block extensions are no longer necessary. A clampless swager is capable of putting out over 30,000 lbs. of force for quick and precise end forming. The rapid set-up times and accuracy for expansions, slip-fits, flares, ball-joints, reductions and manifold flanges keep projects moving swiftly, leading to greater profits and less downtime, BendPak said.

The internal segment expander features a single arbor for all tubing sizes 1.5 inches to 3 inches, and a single cylinder operation control handle is smartly mounted in the center, so the operator can stand comfortably in one place to work both sides, according to the maker. Each Blue-Bullet has a durable powder coat finish to protect against damage.

As an optional accessory, BendPak offers itss BendData program, a library of bending specifications and step-by-step how-to guides for exhaust systems on over 10,000 cars and light trucks dating back to 1965, the company said.
