What is Bend-Tech HD? Finally a tool is available to remove the trial and error out of tube header manufacturing. Bend-Tech HD allows any user to be able to design his own tube headers in minutes, providing detailed step-by-step instructions where to cut and rotate each tubular segment. Bend-Tech HD is the only product in the world to help you design custom tube headers and break it down to fabrication instructions to use pre-bent mandrel tubing.
How hard is it to use? Bend-Tech HD was designed for the fabricator. It uses terms and technology you will understand. We don’t expect our customers to have any CAD experiences and in many cases any computer experience. We are bringing a software product to your world of fabrication and we have worked very hard for you to feel comfortable with it in minutes.
How do I get started? Getting started with any project is always the hardest hurdle to overcome. Creating your own header tube designs is as easy as locating points in 3D space using our state-of-art special tools; our Tri-Star and Tri-Globe. Each of these tools allows a user to place points in 3D space using familiar terms, such as; front, back, left, right, floor and ceiling. Place points at each of the tube for the header and the collector and place 2 more points showing the direction for both ends.
Creating the tube is a 3D game of “connect the dot”. Start from one end of the tube, select the 2 end points and the 2 directional points and a 2-bend tube is completed. That’s it!!!! Everything else is nearly finished.
How do I move the tube around to create the shape I am looking for? HD provides 2 unique ways to move the tubing on the screen. Big increment moves are best made with our “Directional Spike Collar”. Select a spike and pull the tube in that direction until it looks close to what you desire. Small increments are made easy with a function called “Nudge”. This function allows you to nudge the tube in a precision direction with ease
I would like to even out the lengths? As you are moving and altering your design, HD displays the length for each tube at the bottom of the screen. The length display is updated dynamically at all times.
What control do I have? Create your own material libraries, radii and an inventory of pre-bent mandrel bends (“J” or “U” bends). At any time you can change the radius of an individual bend, alter the material diameter or even “step” the material. Adding and removing bends are 2 clicks for completion. At anytime you can rotate and zoom your project.
Collision Checking? Yes, HD will check to verify your tubes are not intersecting as well as allow you to create interference tubes and feature collision wires.
How do I build my header tube? Bend-Tech HD will output a small instructional packet giving full descriptions (graphical and text) of each tube section, including; length, angle, radius and material. HD will also provide the amount of rotation needed between each tube section.
For customers using pre-bent mandrel tube, we went the extra mile. Select one button, “J-Bend Calculator” and Bend-Tech HD will optimize your tubing and graphically show you how to cut each section out of your inventory.
If I have a mandrel bender, will Bend-Tech HD provide me proper instructions? Yes it will as long as it is coupled with our Bend-Tech SE software product. SE is our commercial tube bending software product that will give you the proper length, rotation, angle and XYZ information as well as calculated cut length.
Start your next custom header project with Bend-Tech HD. It will save you a ton on time and pay for itself on its first project. Stop guessing and start fabricating with Bend-Tech HD.
