Tools of the Trade – Soft Tube Cutter and Hard Tube Bending Tool
EK®, the European premium liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is expanding its liquid cooling gear portfolio with two new tools from the EK-Loop portfolio that make the loop building experience an even easier task. EK-Loop Soft Tube Cutter and EK-Loop Modulus Hard Tube Bending Tool, of which the first caters to builders preferring soft tubing allowing precise cuts of PVC, EPDM, Norprene, silicone or any other flexible tubing, while the second one is for builders preferring rigid (hard) tubing enabling them to bend their tubing without hassle and achieve exact angles.
EK-Loop Soft Tube Cutter
EK-Loop Soft Tube Cutter is a small handy tool specifically made for soft tube cutting. It is compatible with various flexible soft tubing types such as PVC, EPDM, Norprene, silicone, etc. The maximum size compatibility of the cutter is 16mm (5/8”) OD. This soft tube cutter makes a precise even cut allowing perfect fitment onto the fitting and superior aesthetics if you’re using barb fittings.
EK-Loop Modulus Hard Tube Bending Tool
The Modulus is the EK approach to an easy and straight forward way of bending hardline acrylic and PETG tubing. The tools act as a mold which helps the user to form the tubing in the desired shape. These bending tools are made to be timeless and sturdy, as they are machined out of a solid piece of black POM acetal.
EK-Loop Modulus tools come in 3 variants depending on the outer diameter (OD) of the tubing. Available models are for tube size of 12mm, 14mm, and 16mm.
