L & H is proud to introduce the latest in CENTERMARK technology
-- THE L&H CENTERMARK Bender.
Positive lock down
THE L&H CENTERMARK BENDER
The Latest in CENTERMARK Technology
Overbending is a method of cold forming U-bolts in which the legs spring back to proper configuration. The L&H CENTERMARK Bender with our unique overbend feature
accomplishes the following:
Bending arms and forming rollers move downward and inward on converging paths.
U-bolts are bent in one downward pass, creating equal,parallel legs.
Overbend is made low on the rod eliminating contact with the critical shoulder area.
Overbend -- not just a feature -- a necessity!
Single Screw Adjustments
Our main goal in designing the L&H CENTERMARK Bender is to combine our overbend features with a single adjusting screw. The L&H CENTERMARK Bender with our Patent
Pending Single Screw Adjustment accomplished the following:
Both overbend angle and width of bending arms adjust with one screw.
Simplicity of setup: One screw -- One adjustment.
Equal distance between bending arms and forming die
is assured at setup.
Quality U-bolts with identical legs are produced every time.
Single Screw Adjustment -- not just a feature -- a necessity!
Positive Lock Down
Our positive lock down does more than just hold the rod against the die -- it guarantees the accuracy of the U-bolt radius. The L&H CENTERMARK Bender with our Patent
Pending Wedge Lock Design accomplishes the following:
Exclusive wedge lock design holds the rod firmly against the forming
die during bending.
Proper radius is maintained because the rod does not raise off the die.
Exact fit of U-bolt to mating saddle of axle is accomplished thus
eliminating U-bolt distortion.
Proper U-bolt-torque is maintained after installation.
Positive Wedge Lock -- not just a feature -- a necessity!
Compare The Bend
The operating instructions for "old style" Benders, after the initial bend, read as follows:
"The U-bolt is still slightly open. Reaching the proper size requires closing the arms a little more."
This older process of "overbending" squeezes the rod and reduces the diameter of the U-bolt at its shoulder, the most critical area. The L&H CENTERMARK Bender overbends below the shoulder, assuring the integrity and diameter of the entire U-bolt, thus maintaining the strength levels for which it is designed.
