Made from rugged I-beam construciton, Huth's Model 3012 tube bender bends round and square tubing.

Huth Equipment Inc. has introduced its Model 3012 tube bender with a raised bending platform area, delivering unlimited bending possibilities for exhaust replacement service.

The 3012 bends both round and square tubing and provides more clearance around the bending die area than the typical exhaust compression style benders, allowing you to make unique designs and giving you flexibility to bend completely around the bend die.

The 3012 bender utilizes all of the Ben Pearson-style tooling, with bending capability from under 1-inch through 3-inch  diameter round tubing, expanding up through 4-inch diameter round. 

It features push button control and easy-to-use manual knew pedal control and comes with a 5 hp motor providing 58,000 pounds of bending force. It has a deluxe tool tray and is made from rugged I-beam construction.

The smart-automatic mode features an adjustable return-to-home position control that increases efficiency by assuring fast and easy transitions between multiple bends. In the automatic mode, the depth-of-bend selector ensures precise bending control through the use of an easy-to-read, easy-to-adjust depth of bend plate.

Tooling to bend square tubing is available as well as custom bending. End finishing tooling also can be made for your specific requirement.

Using 'Return on Sales' Measurement to Guide Purchases

Let’s look at two hypothetical tire and service stores, in the same town, a few miles from each other. Both stores do about $1.2 million in sales with about a third of their business in tires, the rest in service. Both see business is up and getting even better. It’s time to hire another salesperson. My advice to one of the owners is, “Go ahead, you need the extra help,” to which he thanks me for my expert opinion. To the other owner, I say, “It will make you lose money,” and he quickly tells me how wrong I am.

Anne Forristall Luke believes as the USTMA better explains the part it plays in consumer safety, consumers will be more likely to ask what part they need to play to keep travel safe.
