RIDGID® (Elyria, OH) has introduced easy-to-use hand tools to its product line-up, including the 600 Series Instrument Tubing Bender. The latest member of the RIDGID stainless steel product family, the 600 Series Benders are capable of bending tubes 3/16- to 1/2-inches in diameter with bend radiuses ranging from 5/8-inch to 38 millimeters. It offers a two-stage handle system to allow bends from 90 to 180 degrees without ever crossing handles, keeping bends in-plane and accurate, says the company. Product features include clear gain marks for properly aligned bending angles, extra-long handles for increased leverage, a vise clamp block that provides extra stability, cushioned handle grips for improved bending ease, and roll dies in the product’s heavy-duty bending carriage to reduce tube flattening.
