In the world of bending there are a ton of options, features, controls and concepts that can overwhelm a perspective buyer. Many of these options can be removed or narrowed down by discussing what type of bender you need: semi-automatic or CNC? At AM Industrial we work with all shapes, sizes, options and brands of benders. Below is a brief overview of semi-automatic vs. CNC that can help you determine...

CFM or cubic feet per minute is used to measure the rate at which air is moving.
Horsepower or HP is used to measure the power of the blower in a dust collection unit.
This ratio of CFM versus Horsepower is important as the goal is to get the ideal CFM with the lowest horsepower to save on energy costs. In dust collection, you must also factor in static pressure.
To move a given...

Anytime air is moved through filters there is resistance. Measuring the resistance is important on a dust collection system because it is an indicator of filter effectiveness and filter cleaning performance. The difference in pressure between the clean side of the filters and the dirty side of the filters is referred to as differential pressure.
Differential pressure is measured in inches of...

THE FLARE: Perhaps one of the most common tube end-forms in the tube world, the flare is a relatively simple form. There are many machines and methods to get the job done. Flared tubes are used in nearly every industry - be it a hydraulic line for a tractor, a fuel line for an airplane or a transition on a leg for a table.
The two primary methods of flaring are Ram-Forming and Rotary Forming.

Have you ever thought about changing your filters on your dust collector because it is not drawing sufficient airflow?
The principle role of a dust collector is to control and minimalize emissions created by an industrial process. When new, clean filters are installed, the filter media captures dust particles, and allows clean air to pass through. Over time the dust accumulates, often increasing...

There is widespread marketing to convince buyers that cartridge-type dust collectors are the new and improved way to collect dust. There are many applications very well suited to cartridge-type filtration.
While the stereotype is that baghouses are old fashioned, experienced engineers know, that they excel in certain applications.
Bag filter dust collectors are particularly useful in...

There are many types of fans, including material handling fans, backward inclined fans and pressure type fans. The fan creates the air movement within a dust collection system. With a material handling fan, it not only moves the air but also is capable of moving the material.
Material Handling Fans Capabilities:
Handles Abrasives: Material handling fans are built for heavy duty applications...

The varying words and definitions that describe the world of bending:
Tube Terminology PART 1: Tool-set
Have you ever tried to describe tube bender tooling without the proper terminology? It can get interesting very fast. From phrases like “Mandrel”, “Bendy-Thing”, and “Pressure Die”, this blog will help make every tooling conversation going forward...

A functioning and efficient pulse clean system will extend filter life and minimize operating costs. Make sure your pulse cleaning system is effective without wasting compressed air.
Troubleshooting tips for your dust collector’s pulse clean system
Check the pressure in the air manifold – should be 85-100 psi – clean, dry air, with sufficient volume to maintain pressure
