Authorized Dealer


Now you do have a choice. A bender that delivers superior performance at a highly competitive price. We took our standard bender and equipped it with a simple knee valve and degree plate combination. We made it simple but rugged, and oh yea, affordable. What more could you ask for? The knee operated valve gives you precise control and hands free bending capability with the convenience of trouble-free operation. Simply push the lever to the left to advance the bending die then to the right to retract it. Heavy duty cast iron construction means the valve will stand up to years of heavy use.

    • Quick-Change Bending Dies - Who has time to waste? Especially when you have a car in the air and others lined up. When we first came up with the idea of twist-lock tooling and quick-change bending dies others said it wouldn’t work. Well it did, and it still does. In fact it still does so well that others copied. Imitation really is the best form of flattery.

    • 180-Degree Bending Capacity - You say you have to bend deep. Well, how does a U-shape sound? Be sure to ask for our 180-Degree dies if you’re planning to bend more than 170 degrees. You’ll get perfect deep bends on a 5” radius without the pipe sticking or hanging up. That’s because we use an exclusive relief cut design on our bending dies that helps maintain the pipes uniformity throughout the bend cycle and eliminates excessive “crimping” or deformation.

    • 3” Bending Capacity - We’ve purposely built 3” bending capacity into every BendPak bender so that you can order three inch dies when you need them. Our three inch bending dies are a fine example of our commitment to quality. Sure there heavy, but take a close look at their design. We took ordinary bending dies and made them not so ordinary. No other manufacturer uses this exclusive step-cut process for the die rails that actually helps contain the larger size tubing better and gives you a more uniform bend. Not only can you bend three inch tubing but we’ve made it possible for you to expand it and flare it as well. We have all the dies you need to make your big tubing jobs small ones.

    • Long Stroke Bending Cylinder - Because every BendPak bender is equipped with an extended top cylinder, you no longer need to use pusher block extensions when bending with small radius dies. Also, because the 14” top cylinder can be retracted further, additional clearance is provided for changing dies or removing bent tubing.

    • Clampless Swager - All BendPak benders are equipped with our exclusive Clampless Swager which puts out an incredible force of over 30,000 pounds for quick and precise end forming. The Clampless Swager provides rapid set-up time and a high degree of accuracy for both I.D. and O.D. expansions, slip-fits, flares, ball-joints, reductions, and manifold flanges. All tooling is quick release. Take a close look at the clamp assembly. What you don’t see is a cumbersome, antiquated vise assembly to secure the tubing in the clamp area. What you do see is good old fashioned American ingenuity at it’s finest. The narrow hinged collars simple drop into position and allow you to flare tubing ends as close as 3” from a bend. Don’t worry about the clamps slipping either. The more pressure you put on the clamps the tighter they grip.

    • Internal Segment Expander - Our internal segment expander is just as unique as our Clampless Swager and can be used for both I.D. and O.D. expansions, slip-fits, flares, ball-joints, and manifold flanges. Our buttress canister has a single position setting for all I.D. expansions but can also be adjusted for special sizing requirements. A single arbor is used for all tubing sizes 1-1/2” - 3”.

With BendPak’s exclusive “Clampless Swager” and Internal Expander, you can easily perform all end finishing operations with ease. Reducing, Internal Swaging, Flares, Flat Flares, Ball Joints, Male Ball Joints, Female Sockets, Double Donut-Type Flares, and more. All tooling is quick release.

Our Blue-Bullet models are equipped with a double ended cylinder for both the clampless swager and segment expander. A single control handle operates the cylinder and is placed towards the middle so you can stand comfortably in one location and operate both sides.

    • Industrial-Grade Hydraulic Cylinders – Integrated into every BendPak bender are commercial-grade hydraulic cylinders that feature one-piece, pilot fitted, machined steel pistons wrapped with specially designed, pressure loaded U-cup piston seals, backups and wear bands that virtually eliminates any fluid bypass. Our micro-smooth chrome-rods are machined from high yield, ground & polished C-1045/50 micro-alloy steel then plated to a minimum of .001˝ diametrically, to ensure superior cylinder operation and life. Specially designed, high durometer, mechanically loaded rod seals virtually eliminate rod seal leakage and a specially formulated abrasion resistant urethane rod wiper provides exclusion protection. Our welded cylinder bodies are made from high yield-strength steel tubing produced to exceed ASTM specifications. This combination of superb base material and superior design ensures straight, smooth and long duty life cylinders.

    • Durable Powder Coat Finish – All Pipe Benders feature a durable powder coat finish that gives the metal a high-quality, extremely durable finish which can withstand even the harshest environmental or chemical conditions. Unlike other companies that claim to powder coat, we take pride in our meticulous 10-step process. First, all parts are visually inspected then sandblasted. After, the parts are washed in our five-stage phosphate tanks that can accommodate parts up to 25’ long. Once cleaned, they’re immediately dried, to avoid rust production then outgassed. Outgassing is a process we take pride in which pre-bakes the parts in a curing oven, reducing the possibility of blemishes that may be hiding in the pores of the metal. If not properly outgassed, imperfections in the metal may bubble during the curing process and most likely cause chips in the powder. After the parts are washed and outgassed, any surfaces and/or threaded holes that need to be masked or plugged are done so with high-temperature masking tape and silicone plugs. Next, the parts are given a quick thinner wipe to remove any light debris or fingerprints then hung on an electrostatically grounded conveyor line. The powder is then applied using an electrostatic spray gun. The powder “sticks” to the parts similar to how dust sticks to a television screen. Once the parts are powder coated, the carts are rolled into our curing oven and baked at 400 degrees for 15 for 45 minutes.

Our computer exhaust bend data covers over 10,000 applications. The simple computer program system guides you step-by-step when fabricating original equipment exhaust and tailpipes. Coverage includes domestic and light trucks as far back as 1965.
