The size of the groove will depend upon the outside diameter (OD) and the center line radius (CLR) the maximum degree of bend (DOB).. These parameters then have a major impact on the size and shape of the bend die.
The bend dies are most commonly bolted down. It is also possible to fix it directly to the machine using flanges. The die is usually fixed using a key.
The collets are produced in two variants with 6 or 8 segments and with different angles of the fixed section. The cone-shaped section of the individual segments of the collet must be the same size as the cone shape of the fixed barrel. That's why we recommend ordering both components together.
