The Kraken weld coupon bender and breaker is the patent pending invention of Trace. He has tested welders for various companies for the past 10 years. As a certified welding inspector and quality control supervisor, he has seen many different weld coupon bending and breaking units. All other units on the market required a power source such as hydraulics, electricity, bottle jacks, pneumatic, pumps and/or motors. The Kraken was designed to bend and break weld coupons with the weight of the body alone using lever action. This greatly reduces time spent bending and breaking weld coupons, allowing more time for parameter collection, observations, and measurements. See the videos below for sample bending and breaking operations.
