Tube or Pipe bender machines are available for pipes of all sizes from those used in ball point pens up to those for big pipelines. There are two different types of machines available that can process tubes of almost all diameters and wall thicknesses. Tube bending machines with a single clamp, clamp the pipe in on one side and then bend it into the defined profile. The tube is nestled along the whole area concerned and then only released when the desired radius is reached. This process works at a very high level of precision and can produce consistent quality, even for mass produced bent tubes.
The second type of basic structure of a pipe bending machine is the machine made out of three movable rollers. These rollers can be switched out to exactly fit the diameter of the tube. The rollers are positioned in an equilateral triangle. The tube is then placed into the machine and the middle roller is hydraulically driven in between the other two rollers. The distance between the two static rollers and the length of travel of the moveable roller depends on the radius of the curvature of the tube. This process is particularly suited for individual pieces, custom made products or assembly work on construction sites.
The Range of Pipe Bending Machines
Pneumatically operated tube bending machines are used to mass produce cannulas and small tubes of a similar size. The tube bending machines, which operate using a lever and muscle power, are most often used in workshops. Operating these tools requires some experience and one can quickly learn how to produce good results. The manufacturing or adjustment of exhaust pipes for automobiles can be offered very cheaply when produced using this method. There are even hand operated pipe bending machines available for stronger or particularly hard materials like stainless steel, which are partly hydraulically operated. Similar to hydraulically operated jacks, these machines bend the tube using a pressure cylinder and a radius profile. More powerful CNC controlled pipe bending machines are used for industrial settings. These undertake the whole forming process in one stage. Particularly high-end workstations of this kind also offer laser processing. Using this feature, one machine can produce a complex and high-end component for special application within a series.
