One problem we encounter from time to time is this: "What is the difference between a tube bender and a tube pipe bender?" Similarly, sometimes we are sometimes asked to clarify the difference between a tube and a tube.
What is the difference between a tube bender and a pipe bender? The difference between a tube bender and a tube bender is very simple, there is no difference. If the machine can bend the pipe, the pipe can be bent. The only exceptions are very large or very small tubes and pipes. However, in this case, it does not matter whether the material to be bent is a tube or a tube. Whether it is large or small, you need to use a machine that can handle both specifications.
So, although there is no difference between the pipe and the pipe bender, there is a difference between the pipe and the pipe. And, as it turns out, fixing this difference can be a bit difficult.
If you quickly search for a pipe and pipe bender, you'll find many answers. Prevailing wisdom would suggest that the difference is in the way they are measured. The pipe is measured by its internal diameter, while the pipe is measured by its external diameter. Many sources also mention using a schedule when measuring a pipe, referring to its wall thickness.
In addition, the pipes do not have to be round and can have different shapes, such as a square or an oval. On the other hand, the pipes are always round.
However, it seems that the best distinction between pipe and pipe is to use the inside diameter and schedule for the pipe and the outside diameter for the pipes.
To use a pipe bender, you must first choose the right bender. You should mark the tube with bending directions and reference points. This line should remain in the opposite direction to the desired bend direction.
Then the pipe should be leveled and placed in the pipe bender. Then raise one of the bending arms to insert the tube, making sure the reference points remain visible. When it is in place, lower the bending arm to secure the tube in place, and when you are ready to bend, grasp the support arm and pull down. You should be able to see the reference points.
After reaching the desired bend, release the support arm and disconnect the tube from the pipe bender.
The mandrel tube bender is a very accurate electric tube bender, working with a patented vertical clamping system. This allows you to bend complex and complicated shapes into strong tubes without wrinkles. Wrinkles appear when the tube is unsuccessfully bent.
When the thin wall is bent 45 degrees, wrinkles may occur. For bending thin-walled pipes for use in bicycles and furniture, use a manual pipe bender.
It is important to use the right tube matrix because it supports the inner bend radius of the tube, which shrinks as it extends outward. Keeping oiled dies on the pipe bender will help move the tube along, helping to preserve the dies.
Many bending machines for stainless steel pipes are available. It will depend on the strength of the pipe, as well as the radius to which you plan to bend the pipe. The likelihood of wrinkles appearing will depend on the bend radius of the tube. Stem pipe benders are ideal for stainless steel pipes.
