Vertical Plate Bender

  • For bending cylinders from large to small diameters used in the production of pressure vessels, boilers, nuclear plant and legs/piles for oil platforms and modules
  • Sizes from 300 5000 Tonnes or more for plate widths up to 4.5 metes and thicknesses to 200mm cold
  • The vertical machine requires minimum crane attendance and occupies minimum floor space
  • Complete cylinders can be formed in a floor to floor time of 20 mins or less depending on diameter
  • Plate edge pre-setting is easily carried out using the direct acting hydraulic force of the machine
  • Adjustable bending centres provide the most suitable conditions for bending all sizes and thicknesses of plates
  • Crane attendance is not required once the plate is entered into the machine
  • RE-rounding and correction of weld seam can easily be carried out
  • Machine can be used to form cones and for plate straightening and with nosebar attached to roller can be used for heavy duty flanging work including closed boxes
