Tube Bending: Draw Bending vs. Roll Bending

Steel tube bending often involves choosing between two distinct methods: draw bending and roll bending. Each approach is suited to specific applications, making it essential to select the right one based on your project’s requirements.

How to Bend Stainless Steel Tubing: Basics, Methods, 90° Bending

Two factors, wall factor, and bend radius are used to determine the severity of a bend. little or no support is needed inside the tube when the tube diameter is small and the wall is thick.

As the tube diameter increases, the tube becomes weaker. If the wall thickness of the tube decreases this too makes it weaker. The forces acting on the tube also become greater as the bend centerline radius becomes smaller.
