Wila introduces its line of RotaBend Dies, available in 3 models for bending up to 6.35mm / 0.250” material thickness. Rotabend Dies enable forming of short or tapered flanges. eliminate distortion at holes near the bend line, and greatly reduce part marking. The rotor wings are hardened to 55 HRC ensuring long term durability and accuracy.
The RotaBend Die is a specialized die, sometimes called Rolla-V or other trade names, which two semicircular rotating pads set inside the top of the die. As the punch moves downwards the work piece begins to bend and the pads rotate with the work piece. Below you can see the basic setup of a die.
Rotabend Dies will be available from Wila for delivery from stock during the first quarter 2015.
