   Busbar Fabrication BGD5 Part No.41800

Based on an embeded Windows XP System, the BGD5 offers simple WYSIWYG programming, with full graphical interface. No CNC programming skills are required with even the most complicated busbar configurations easily created / edited.

During bending operation the digital angle measurement with full automatic spring back compensation will ensure an accuracy of +/- 0.2 degrees from requested value. The automatic length stop will travel up to 800mm positioning your busbar within seconds. With an intigrated 3Ph/400V power pack minimising cycle times to around 11 seconds for a 90 degree bend including the spring back competnsation

Large Step Bending Tool

Min. length for insertion L min = 39 mm (1.535“)
Bending radius R = 10 mm (0.394“)
Width of step W = 37 mm (1.457“)

Small Step Bending Tool

Small step bending tool O/N 31671
Min. length for insertion L min = 23 mm (0.906“)
Bending radius R = 7.5 mm (0.295“)
Width of step W = 21 mm (0.827“)

Supplementary Bending Tool

Small leg length of down to 25 mm (1“) can be bent using the supplementary bending tool.
With the standard set-up, 45 mm is the minimum

The maximum busbar sizes are as follows:
for aluminium: 120 x 10 (4³/4“ x ³/8“)
for copper 120 x 6 (4³/4“ x 0.236““)
80 x 8 (3.194“ x 0.315“)
60 x 10 (2.362“ x ³/8“)

Small Edge Bending Tool

Busbars with a max. dimension of 50x10 mm (1.968“ x ³/8“) can be bend edge wise.
The bending radius is fixed to 40 mm, whereby
40x10 mm bars can be bend to 90°, and bars
50x10 mm finish at 45°.
