Let’s dive into the fine details. What is tube bending? How does it work? Who can do it? How long does it take? One misconception that people may have is that tube bending is a fairly quick and simple process. This could not be farther from the truth. There are many “tools” and honed skills that need to be used in order to bend a tube properly…
Tube Bending: How We Do It
Tube Bending is an important step in the process of manufacturing industrial pipes and tubing, which serve a vital role in both construction and the transportation of materials. Most bent pipes and tubes function as structural components or as “passageway” units that facilitate the transfer of substances.
Tube bending is a craft often required to bend metal tubes and bring them to customized shapes for performing a number of important functions. They are required by various types of industries, such as aerospace, construction, military and furniture sectors.
We at AWC Industries specialize in high end metal bending, fabricating and finishing services. We offer tube bending services for ferrous as well as non-ferrous substances such as aluminum, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel. Our state of the art CNC tube bending and fabricating facilities can produce the highest quality finished goods and we can bend and fabricate metal tubes of up to 3 inch diameter.
As a tube or pipe is being bent, the exterior wall at the point of the bend begins to stretch and thin out. Simultaneously, the corresponding interior segment of the workpiece becomes thicker and more compressed. Controlling these degrees of physical deformation is important for creating a smooth rounded bend. Thick walled tubes bent at a wide radius are likely to have a relatively low degree of deformation, but thinner tubes may not.
