Workers who manually work with rebar are likely at risk of injury. Musculoskeletal problems may not be evident now, but may occur and become chronic later in life because of manual materials handling. That’s because working with reinforcing steel bars could cause injury to the nerves, muscles, ligaments and discs of the lower back. Injuries to the joints and muscles of the hands and arms could also occur down the line. To protect yourself and your workers, it makes sense to invest in a high-quality rebar bender, which will make it easier and quicker to bend steel bars!
Why it matters
Bending rebar involves working in awkward positions, handling heavy materials and doing repetitive movements with force. Over time, these actions could lead to serious wear and tear on your body. When you use special tools, such as the rebar bender, the process of bending steel bars will be automatic and require minimal effort. For instance, with an electric rebar bending tool, you simply need to pull a trigger and it will perform a clean and efficient hydraulic bend with its industrial strength machine head. The tool is lightweight with an ergonomic handle to reduce strain on the arms while you’re at work.
Heavy-duty for the most demanding projects
An industrial rebar bender can make a difference in ensuring utmost safety and higher productivity on concrete construction projects. It can bend anywhere from 4mm or 6mm to 25 or 32mm rebar up to 180 degrees without risking a worker’s safety. Some benders come with a built-in cutter, providing you with an all-in-one machine that will also make it easier, quicker and safer to cut the extra length of the steel bar. Bending machines are portable and easy to use, so they can be used in any concrete construction project.
