In the manufacturing or metal processing industries, hydraulic tube benders are required to achieve precise bending without wrinkles. You can set the desired bending angle through specific settings in this device. Hydraulic tube benders can help you create accurate elbows. These hydraulically driven bending tools provide you with different sockets so that you can produce electrical or metal pipes that are bent to the desired angle.
Whether you need to bend metal pipes, pipes, or conduits, hydraulic tube benders are your ideal tool. But what type of pipe bender do you need? The answer of course depends on what you want to bend and how to bend it. In this article, we will take a look at different types of tube benders with a focus on hydraulic tube benders.

The four most common types of pipe benders are hydraulic tube benders, electric, manual, and mechanical. The hydraulic tube bender is extremely durable and strong and can produce precise angles with thick walls in large pipes. Electric pipe benders have electric gear drives and are usually programmable, making them ideal for producing multiple iterations of the same bend. Manual or manual pipe benders are cheap, easy to transport and manipulate, and can complete many bending tasks with sufficient elbow grease. Manual bending is an art form. It requires some skill but allows you to make custom shapes. In terms of bending angles, mechanical benders are between hydraulic benders and manual benders.
The highly versatile hydraulic tube bender can be used in many fields: from automotive hydraulics to interior design. Some examples of finished products that can be produced using 1 to 12 axis pipe benders, depending on the degree of automation required. The most common industries for hydraulic tube benders are:
And many more!
The manual hydraulic tube bender is a relatively simple tool that can provide precise and reliable bends on different pipes including copper pipes, steel pipes, and pipes based on aluminum. Although there are many automatic pipe benders that can be driven electrically and hydraulically, these machines are bulky and not suitable for field applications where proper power connections may not be available. The following are the main steps to operate a hydraulic tube bender:
All manual hydraulic tube benders are recommended to limit the pipe or pipe size that can be effectively bent. The limit can vary depending on the material of the tube and the cross-section and thickness of the tube. Your hydraulic tube bender will have an adjustment dial that needs to be set based on the radius you need in the tube and the total number of degrees you need to bend. You may need to adjust the calculation according to the radius you want to reach to get the desired result. Another factor that you need to remember is whether you can use a vise. Most manual pipe benders can be fitted with a vise, and if you want to bend thicker-walled pipes, you must use this environment.
