   Busbar Fabrication BGD5-eco novopress bending bench bgd5 eco

The all new BGD-5eco is a landmark in economical busbar bending, with high end bending features. Offering full automatic spring back compensation, plus digital stroke measurement, the BGD-5eco is unique in it’s class. No other bending machine offers similar technology and performance at entry price levels.

New 3 phase hydraulic power pack and digital stroke limiter are pushing bending performance to new levels.

Compared to the earlier BGD-4 models, bending speed is increased by almost 100% (11,5sec. vs. 22,5sec.)

New digital stroke measurement allows easy and precise settings for accessories like step- and edge benders.


Combined with the "HSBL-2 Professional System 2" including 160 cutting tool, DigiPunch 160, conveyors and all accessories, at very advantageous net prices. Contact us for more information.

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°.
