Tube Bending

Pipecraft’s range of Tube and Pipe Bending machines provide solutions for a comprehensive range of tube bending and manipulation requirements from 2.0mm o.d. to 76.1mm o.d. in most wall thicknesses and also in solid bar.

Mandrel Bending

This form of Tube Bending is generally employed to produce tight radii bends with centreline radii from 1 ½ times the outside diameter of the tube upwards in perfectly formed and concentric bend forms. The bending plants are of Hydraulic/Electro operation. Specialised tooling is involved for each outside diameter of tube, radii and wall thickness.

An important feature of these tooling sets is the “mandrel” which is generally an articulated multi ball component and which the machine positions inside the tube.

This gradually retracts during the bending cycle and thus prevents the tube from distorting during bending to ensure a perfect distortion free and circular bend area.

The results are smooth, even and uniform and ensure repeatable consistency for all tube manipulation requirements.
