Pipe Bender Guide

Pipe benders can bend hollow-shaped workpieces through the force of a hydraulic or pneumatic source, and sometimes the force can also be a mechanical force, such as a servo motor.

The pipe bender is a special type of machinery in the metal forming industry. The pipe bender is the main production equipment, as well as professional equipment and customized production equipment in the industry.

Pipe Bender Types and Application

Many pipe bending machine manufacturers offer a variety of pipe bending machines. For example, NC pipe bender, universal pipe bender, pipe bender, double-head double pipe bender, and CNC pipe bender. For those bending machines used for pipes, the corresponding applications include furniture industry, automotive industry, sanitary equipment and fitness equipment.

According to physical properties, pipes are tubular cross-sections or hollow cylinders, usually but not necessarily circular cross-sections, and are mainly used to transport flowable substances, namely liquid substances and gases, such as fluids, slurries, powders and a large number of small solids. Pipes can also be used in construction applications.

Pipe Bending / Pipe Making Process 

Before bending, the pipe must be formed by a pipe making machine from the beginning, and the pipe making machine usually uses a drawing method to make the pipe. Pipe drawing is a procedure for determining pipe size by shrinking large diameter pipes. The tube is made into a smaller tube by pulling it through the end of a so-called die.

The pipe making process is a process that can produce high-quality pipes. The pipe has precise pipe size, good surface finish and increased cold working strength. Therefore, the program can be used for a variety of materials. Due to its versatility, the drawn tube is suitable for both large-scale and small-scale production.

The formation of pipes is a series of quite complex production processes involving many types. For example, materials, raw materials, temperature, speed, heating, process control, etc., so the pipe bending machine suppliers usually does not involve the pipe making process.

Most pipe bender suppliers and users will only purchase and customize pipe specifications from pipe suppliers. Since this is a highly customized business model, just like a bent pipe, the formation steps of the pipe will be discussed in detail throughout the procurement process, making the final product hopeful to be an ideal choice for further bending mechanisms and will not cause unnecessary technology And mechanical issues. These problems may lead to reduced profits for business owners. 

Pipe Bender Measurement

In common usage, the term "pipe" is usually interchangeable, but in the field of industrial engineering, these terms are uniquely defined in specific definitions. According to applicable manufacturing standards, the term "pipe" is usually specified by a schedule with a constant outer diameter and a fixed thickness, while "tube" are usually specified by outer diameter and wall thickness.

Just like the EPR paradox once highlighted in the scientific community, there are many hypothetical manufacturing models that have been very popular in futuristic research and corresponding papers. However, with the improvement of the technological level of scientific research, this hypothesis may be dismissed by reliable evidence.

When we reviewed the history of pipe production, experts proposed many measurement methods, which claim to shorten the cycle time of pipe production. However, with the development of bending science, pipe bending industry insiders' evaluation methods of bending has also changed...
