Triumph Hairpin Bender

Triumph Hairpin Bender

Quality. Speed. Accuracy. 

Quality, speed, and accuracy are not just words anymore – they define the OAK Triumph Hairpin Bender. Burr OAK Tool’s revolutionary bender is up to 70 percent more productive, has a smaller factory footprint, boasts quicker tooling changes, and produces straighter legs and more consistent leg lengths than any hairpin bender on the market.

A manufacturer's decision to purchase new production equipment requires the careful consideration of both the more apparent and the less obvious costs associated with the purchase. Complete analysis of all these cost factors is crucial to determining the true Total Cost of Ownership of a machine and the success of a capital purchase.

Hairpin Bender Case Study

The Problem

The global HVAC OEM recognized that their current hairpin bender had issues with quality, was creating downstream difficulties, and was incapable of meeting production output requirements for the upcoming year's forecasts.

The Solution

Burr OAK Tool introduced the Total Cost of Ownership Calculator and walked the OEM through the cost considerations included in the tool. A Burr OAK Tool Sales Engineer reviewed with the Global OEM the overall costs involved with downtime, quality, purchase, and other cost that many organizations forgot to consider when purchasing capital equipment. After all was said and done, the OEM realized that the overall value proposition of the OAK Triumph Hairpin Bender was superior to all other options. They determined that it was the most cost effective machine and decided to purchase the OAK Triumph. The machine was installed on the factory floor within three months of the signing of the purchase agreement, having been shipped overseas from Sturgis, Michigan USA. The Triumph has now been on the OEM's floor for just over one year and is improving efficiency throughout the entire production environment. 

The Results

  • Over 50% improvement in machine overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) measures.

  • OEM's 'Line A' coil braze joint reduction by 45% (immediate direct material cost reduction).

  • OEM's 'Line B' coil braze joint reduction by 50% (immediate direct material cost reduction). 

  • Able to meet OEM's next 5 year production requirements of multiple product lines.

  • Capable of quickly meeting different hairpin length demands on one machine.
