Pressure die

The Pressure Die maintains a constant pressure between the tube and the die throughout the bend.

The size of the groove will depend upon the outside diameter (OD) and the center line radius (CLR) the maximum degree of bend (DOB).. Most machines use a Pressure Die which moves with the tube in the direction of the bend and thus provides the best support. For older machines, you can still see stationary Pressure Dies, sometimes with several rotation valves located in a row.
Just as with the Clamp Die we see the same variety of parameters with the pressure die depending on the equipment used. One of the most common methods of clamping is a exchange Pressure Clamp with brackets and a wiper die.
