It’s worth a mention firstly that there are two common terms used in industry, tube bending and pipe bending. Tube is measured by the outside diameter whereas pipe is measured by the inside diameter. Pipe sizing refers to the nominal inside diameter, sometimes called nominal bore, rather than the actual inside diameter.
When it comes to bending pipe or tube, there are several techniques that can be used to achieve a quality, custom-formed part. The primary types of bending used for tubes and pipes are compression bending, roll bending, freeform bending, and mandrel… Read More »4 types of bending processes of tube bending
Tube design When designing and arranging pipes, avoid excessive arcs, arbitrary curves, compound bends, and arcs greater than 180°. Excessive arc not only makes the tooling bulky, but also is limited by the size of the pipe bending machine; The… Read More »5 Points to note for bending pipes of cold bending

Ovality or distortion Ripple on the pipe surface is a common problem that occurs during the bending operation.Understanding the reason behind Ripple can help avoid this problem.Corrugations are caused by high compressive forces inside thin-walled pipes or tubes.The thicker pipe… Read More »Surface deformation of pipe bending
Bending stainless steel pipe/tube is a process that can be used to shape stainless steel pipe into many useful configurations.
The difficulty of bending a section of pipe depends on the thickness of the pipe.
Although thick-walled pipe requires more force to bend, it is less likely to fail during the bending process than thin-walled materials.
Pipes of different sizes need their own set of molds.
Description Although stainless pipe is an intensely hard material, stainless steel is ductile and malleable and can be formed using various mechanical means into a wide variety of shapes. Bending stainless tube is a process that can be utilized to… Read More »how to bend stainless steel pipes
Introduce Mandrels are a commonly used tool when bending pipes. Proper use of the mandrel can help prevent some of the most common problems and problems you might encounter when bending a tube. However, if the positioning is not correct,… Read More »How the mandrel bends the pipe?
Foreword: Tube bending is one of the most common forming processes when it comes to manufacturing metal parts for different industries. In fact, tube bending is considered the main operation to form tubing and piping as the final product or as part of a… Read More »Bending characteristics of new version 2021 steel and aluminum tubes
NPS, or nominal pipe size, is the North American set of size standards for pipes that are used for temperatures and pressures of all ranges. The nominal pipe size identifies the size of the diameter of the pipe’s hole with a non-dimensional number. Using the NPS, a pipe is identified by its diameter and then with another non-dimensional number for the pipe’s wall thickness.
