Clamp DieThe role of the Clamp Die is to apply the pressure between the tube and the clamping part of the Bend Die to hold the tube firmly during the bend.
A solid grip on the tube is necessary for successful bending. Any slippage of the tube will have a significant impact on the quality of the bend.
The Clamp Die always has the same length and the surface finish as the clamping part of the bend die.
There are many ways to fix the Clamp Die to the machine and it depends on the equipment used. One common way is to use a T-nut.
