A line bender, also known as a strip heater, is just a long skinny heating element that makes it easy to soften a sheet of plastic along a straight line, so you can bend it with your hands to an arbitrary angle, and/or against a jig for more precise control of the bend.

The Formech Line Bender 500 is a manually operated line-blending machine that heats plastic sheets (up to 500mm wide) for bending. It is great for making items like boxes, menu holders, price holders and machine guards. Use the dedicated cooling jig to maintain the desired angle of the heat-bent plastic while cooling.
