The RAB-Series of Rebar Arc-Radius Forming Machine from Consolidated Machines (CM) is the PERFECT CHOICE for contractors needing to bend rebar in Large Arc-Radius or Rings at an economical price. It is available in 2 sizes – RAB-20 & RAB-32
✓ Variable Operating Speed 8-18 meters per min
✓ Multiple Bar Forming capable depending on Bar size and Machine geometry
✓ PLC controls Optional : PLC makes the Machine more user friendly and SMARTER
✓ Covers and Safety systems Ensures Safe operating Conditions
The RAB-Series of Rebar Arc-Radius Forming Machine are driven by the 3-rollers principle. The presence of the PLC in the machine ensures that the rollers are correctly positioned to form the desired radius profile accurately. Programs are stored in the PLC and can be quickly recalled for repeated requirement of orders.
As with every other rebar fabricating machine from Consolidated Machines (CM) the RAB-Series of machines are fitted with a robust Electro-Hydraulic Drive which are simple to maintain. In sum, the RAB-Series bender is a special application machine which is ECONOMICALLY PRICED yet equipped to deliver arc-radius formed rebar in HIGH VOLUMES.

A typical mechanical drive machine is built with non-standard electric motors, a customized gear box, clutch, fly-wheel, pulleys, belts (chain) each of which are pain points when it comes to maintenance. Because of the use of non-standard components in the making of the mechanical machines, the OE supplier is typically the only source of spares and after-sales support. Breakdowns can lead to long down times, high cost of spares or may even render the machine economically unfit for repair.
WHEREAS the Consolidated Machines (CM) range of Hydraulic Drive Machines are Powered with standard brands of Electric Motors, and the common hydraulic elements are bought-out from, for example, Bosch Rexroth, Eaton, Yuken Hydraulics. These are Time Tested reliable robust components whose spares are easily available and at a very fair price. Breakdown repairs do not require special skills.
Without any doubt Hydraulic Powered Machines guarantee a Win-Win situation when factors of Reliability, Machine Life, Down Time, and Ease of Maintenance are taken into consideration in purchasing decision.
In the event of improper power connections the mechanical machine will work in the wrong direction of Bending thus putting the machine operator’s life in Danger. WHEREAS under a similar scenario the Hydraulic Drive Machine will simply NOT Work, thus averting a Possible Accident.
Yet another scenario when the machine operator’s life is at risk with mechanical-powered machines occurs when the Bending Table could continuously rotate in the event of a Sensor Failure. WHEREAS in Hydraulic Bending Gear, rotation is limited to just over half-a-round, thus keeping the Operator safe even in the event of the sensor failure.
Hydraulic powered Machines are compactly built and lower in weight as compared to obsolete Mechanical Drive Machines – this is a very important consideration for project owners at construction sites who may like to swiftly mobilize their assets to match site conditions.
