If you're tired of guessing the angle of rotation on complex bends and cringe at the thought of how much material you have "wasted," we have a cost effective solution for you.
The SWAG Plane of Bend Bracket is ideal anytime your work requires an accurate rotation of the previous bend completed, prior to performing the next bend operation. With the tube bending computer software that is out in the market place today, knowing where the plane of bend is in your tubing will save you time, materials and money.
The top portion is CNC machined out of 6061 Aluminum and is easily secured to your material using the adjustable lockable pliers that feature large V-pads that provide a superior clamping surface to any other PoB bracket out in the market. The SWAG Plane of Bend bracket will fit tubing ranging from 7/8" OD material up to 2.5" OD. Through product evolution and customer feedback, we now machine dual grooves on the bottom of the Aluminum Digital Readout (DRO) bracket. This latest feature allows the DRO to be turned 90 degrees on the clamp; allowing clear visibility for complex bends when the original orientation wouldn't be visible without moving away from the operating position.
The iGaging digital indicator accurately detects where the plane of bend is and provides you a read out of 360° rotation in 180° increments. Just set the unit on a flat reference surface, press the ZERO button to calibrate the display then clamp it to your tubing.
