Bar Bending Machines

Bar Bending Machines commonly known as Bar Benders, Rebar Benders, TMT Steel Bar Benders, Rebar Bending Machines, TMT Steel Bending Machines, Rod Bending Machines. Hydraulic Bar Bending Machine.

The Consolidated Machines (CM) line of hydraulic bar benders are in use since 1997. The CM line of Bar Benders have proven to be the reliable workhorse behind hundreds of thousands of square feet of reinforced concrete construction in India and overseas. Discerning builders of concrete structures seeking a robust, reliable, high-performing bar bender will not hesitate to order our B-Series of bar benders to have amongst their assets a bar bender that has a long-life and is maintenance-free.


Consolidated Machines (CM) Series B and BA are Identical bar bending Machines, except for the PLC Controls that are fitted to the BA-Series.

Project Managers of modern high-rise concrete structure and critical infrastructure projects follow a precisely-defined Bar Bending Schedule (BBS). Accuracy in construction is the key to the structure’s long-life. The BA-Series of bar benders from Consolidated Machines (CM) perfectly match the site’s exacting specifications of accuracy. The highly-reliable Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) fitted on the BA-Series of Bar Benders delivers the steel with a Bending Angle to a precision of one degree. The automation in the BA-Series of benders enables the machine operator to pre-set successive bending angles and continuously execute the bending operations. EXTREMELY HANDY when large quantities of steel has to be bent multiple times at differing angles!! This Feature also plays an important role when our Bar Bending Machines are used to Form Stirrup Rings.

Bending Speed Control – an Optional Feature
Our Hydraulic Drive Bar Benders are fitted with Bending Speed Controls, which is an ESSENTIAL Requirement when Bending PU (Epoxy) Coated Bars

The XL-Sized bar benders from Consolidated Machines (CM) are special application bending machines which are in demand for use in critical infrastructure projects and where pre-coated bars are deployed.

As per Bend Test Requirements in IS standards A615M, A706M, A996M,Clause 8.3, the minimum Bending Radius for rebar steel is as high as 5XD and 6XD, Where D is the metric standard Bar size, where again the Bend speed specified is very low. These special large Bar Benders are presented to meet diverse specifications.

The Extra Large benders are available in three variants to suit maximum bar size 32, 36 and 40 A control to adjust very low Bending speed is a standard feature in these models. All related tooling and mandrels also included.

In appearance this model of Consolidated Machines (CM) bar bender looks like the standard Rebar Bender, but the Split-Die Design enables the bar bender to bend steel in both directions. The BI-DIRECTIONAL SPLIT-DIE DESIGN bender matches the bending requirements from the BBS of End Lap Joints (Joggle), Cross Beam Support Members (Double off-sets). The PLC (Automation) fitted on the machine makes the operation easy as child’s play. Multiple bars can be processed in a single bending thereby multiplying by several times the bar bender’s production capacity.

Multiple Bars Bending capacity:

32 / 25 size X 1 no   |    20 size Bars X 2 nos.  |   16 size Bars X 3 nos.

Maximum Bar Bending Angle: 120 degrees in either direction

Instant Bi-directional Bending limited to 40 degrees

Machine Controls:

Electro-Hydraulic Power Transmission + PLC Controls

Rebar rolling mills and rebar pu coating plants require to perform bend test to meet specific quality criteria. Wherein the bending inner radius and the bending speed is specified as per is and such standards.

Typical pu coated bar – test as per a615 /706/996m specifies inner bend radius = 4/5xd and bending speed as low as 0.3 rpm. Hence this machine is designed to accept large mandrel rollers and variable speed bending controls is provided to comply with such requirements.

These machines are custom built to suit maximum bar size 32 / 36 / 40

Machine controls :

Electro-hydraulic power transmission with bending speed control
Variable bending speed 2 rpm to 0.5 rpm

For the convenience of transportation of rebars, the 12 meter length rebars are bent in the center in a u-form, the length is now about 6 meters which is practical to load in normal lorry.

For handling ease each bundle is restricted to about 80 to 110 kgs weight and accordingly the number of bars is bent and bundled together.

Merits of Hydraulic Powered Machines

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.
