Tube bending is a metal forming process that is used to shape pipes or tubing. Bending machines take straight tube stock and create a shape involving single or multiple bends. This allows the tubing to be formed in any fashion to fit the application’s specific needs. Round tubes are typically used for tube bending, but square or rectangular tubes can also be bent in order to meet your specific needs.
During the bending process, a tube is placed against a die, and a force is used to bend the tube to the die’s shape. Bending processes can also involve rollers for simple curves, and mandrels which are placed inside the tube in order to keep the inside from collapsing or deforming during the process. We offer rotary draw bending, roll bending and compression bending in order to give you the widest possible range of options for your project.
