The Pipe Bending Die Data node (the PipeBendingDieData sheet in the Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules.xls workbook) defines die data for pipe bending machines.

Absolute Pipe Bend Radius (Optional)

Type the largest pipe bend radius for the die.

Default Minimum Tangent Length Between Bends (Optional)

Enter the minimum distance between two bends that the die can produce. You can enter zero. This value is used as the minimum tangent length between bends when you do not define the minimum tangent length in the minimum bend-to-bend tangent length data on the basis of the bend type.

Minimum Grip Length (Required)

Enter the minimum grip length for the die. You can enter zero length if applicable. This length overrides the applicable value from the Minimum Pipe Length rule.

Minimum Pull Length (Required)

Enter the minimum pull length for the die. You can enter zero length if applicable. This length overrides the applicable value from the Minimum Pipe Length rule.

Nominal Piping Diameter (Required)

Enter the die NPD.

Nominal Piping Diameter UOM (Required)

Specify the units of measurement, for example in or mm, for the Nominal Piping Diameter column.

Pipe Bend Radius Multiplier (Optional)

Type the pipe bend radius multiplier that apply to this die.

Pipe Bending Machine Name (Required)

Enter the bending machine code for which you are defining die data. The bending machines codes are defined in the Pipe Bending Machine Name column on the PipeBendingMachineData sheet. The sheet is located in the Pipe Bending Manufacturability Rules.xls workbook.
