A wide range of bending work can be carried out using the radial bending principle with a rotary disc (rotary bending or round bending). Compared to horizontal bending, radial bending can be used to bend larger angles such as 180° or greater without difficulty. Flat steel, metal plate, round profiles and various other profiles can be bent using this principle.
With radial bending, the rotating drive bends the material around the bending pin. The bending pin is a simple rotating part, which we can supply to you or you can easily make yourself.
A modern control system, combined with a CNC stop system, makes it possible to create bending programs with several bending sets. This turns the radial bending machine into a production machine that solves your difficult bending tasks efficiently.
Bending with a bending program - round bending (rotational bending) up to 360°
Parts with several bends, including bends greater than 90°, can be bent cost-effectively with a bending program.
Special tool design / By Stierli or the customer
The radial bending machine has often solved difficult bending problems.
Along with the standard bending pins (round bending pins), special tools can also be set up.
The customer often has a precise idea of what the bending tool should look like. We provide a robust, reliable machine and the customer or his toolmaker manufactures the tools. Or our company provides the tool solution.
Bending container brackets
Heavy container brackets can be bent extremely effectively with our Radial 5000 or Radial 10,000. Diameters up to 50 mm are possible.
Bending reinforcing steel
We offer 3 different bending solutions for bending reinforcing steel:
- Bending with forming tools on our horizontal bending machine (for series production)
- Bending with special tools on our horizontal bending machine
- Bending with the radial bending machine
Bending chain links
Bending chain links with 180° bends is possible with the radial bending machine.
The stock does not have to be heated, bending is completed while cold (cold bending).
Mandrel diameters up to 50 mm can be bent with our radial bending machines. (Larger diameters on request)
Bending anchor bolts
The radial bending machine is perfect for bending open anchor bolts. The two bends are completed with the same bending tool (bending pin). A manual hinged stop or an automatically controlled 1 m stop are suitable for this.
Bending closed anchor bolts
You can bend closed anchor bolts that are welded after bending with the “Radial” round bending machine. The two bends are completed with the same bending tool (bending pin). A manual hinged stop or an automatically controlled 1 m stop are suitable for this.
Bending brackets by 180° into padlocks
