Pipe Bending

Pipe bending is used to create components for many different applications.  Curved pipes can be used on bridges, stairs and canopies, as well as machines in the agricultural and construction industries.  Pipes can be bent with a consistent radius, with as little or as much an oval shape as required by the client.  Pipes can also be bent on two planes, and multi-roll bending methods and rotary draw bending methods can be used.  This ensures that our team at A-1 Roll will give you a product that meets your exacting specifications.

While bending pipe has been around for a long time, it is often difficult to get it right.  With variances in thickness of the pipe walls, as well as springback of the material, an inexperienced metal bending company may not provide you with the pieces of bent pipe that you need to complete your project.  At A-1 Roll, we have years of experience in handling the difficulties of bending and will factor in the variables to make sure that our finished product fits your needs.

We use a variety of bending methods such as:

Pipe Bending
  • Ram-type bending, where a ram forces a tube against pivot blocks. While this is the least complex way of bending tube, it can’t be as easily controlled as other methods. Depending on your project specifications, this may not be the right choice for you.
  • Roll bending is regularly used for large construction pieces. Three rolls are positioned as a pyramid and can produce a very specific radius. This type of bending can be used to produce spirals and continuous coils.
  • Compression bending uses a roller or a compression die to bend the pipe around a die. It’s perfect for symmetrical pieces that have the same bends on each side. • Rotary draw bending is the most common type of bending in the industry for applications needing a tight radius. Wall thinning of the tube can be carefully controlled, while mandrels are used to maintain wall thickness.
