Busbar bending systems are produced to facilitate bending busbars for switch boards and switch gears manufacturers these systems are present in 4 types:
1-Manual busbar bending tools
2-Hydraulic busbar bending tools
3- Simple hydraulic busbar bending machines.
4-Professional busbar bending machines.
At Manual tools operator should bend busbar via hand force and it is suitable just for small size if busbars, it could bend busbars at normal axis and measurement is possible just with operator eyes . repeatability and accuracy depends on operator skills.
At hydraulic busbar bending tool, We have some condition for accuracy and repeatability but operator needs low force for doing job. This type is suitable for sites or places that electricity is not available and for small jobs.
Simple hydraulic busbar bending machines are a good choice for small shops or factories that need bending busbar in normal axis away. Measurement of angles are by mechanical or digital angel indicators. Mostly they have “V” type head that cause two lines behind of busbar after bending they don’t calculate spring back and operator should consider and compensate this fault at bending process.
