The pipe bending machine SPB 36-48 is one of the best-selling and more frequently tested machines of the SUPERIOR fleet. 

The machine is equipped with an excellent load sensing LUDV hydraulic system, which makes it unique and unprecedented on the market in terms of specifications. The proportional system enables the operator to “dose” bending power and speed, which is a very important feature when high-yield pipes are bent. Thanks to its frame and the load-bearing structures that are sized to bear the highest pushes, the new SPB 36-48 also bends the most recent and robust pipes like the x-80 and x-100 pipes. The new generation electronic injection Caterpillar engine supplies more power, thus favoring and further enhancing the potential of the Bosch Rexroth system.

The operator’s platform has been redesigned for fitting the new cabin (optional), which offers great comfort, especially when the machine is at work on projects where weather conditions are difficult. The controls have been repositioned in such a way as to give the operator a wider operating visibility. The long undercarriage pitch prevents the pressure exercised by the machine on the ground from increasing and keeps it at regular levels. The standard machine is equipped with quick disconnects for the hydraulic connection of the mandrel.

Bending Sets

Bending Set
Each bending set will fit one pipe size only and it includes: a stiff back liner; a bending die; two pin-up clamp liners; and a pin-up liner.

Bending sets are available bare or with linings to accommodate special conditions and non-standard pipe or coating. Standard bending sets will accommodate pipe manufactured to API-5L.

The largest pipe size in a given pipe bending machine range requires a bending die only.
