The characteristics of different bending methods

The team here at Multiform is one that prides itself on being able to deliver top of the range tube bending services. Our assistance is useful for when you require tubing of a certain composition and don’t have the skills or machinery necessary to make it yourself. No matter what your specifications are, we intend to supply you with the products that you deserve.

After a tube has undergone the fabrication process, it must also experience post-fabrication treatments so that it can be formed into a usable product. Bending stands as one of the most typical procedures out there and is usually conducted via machines or through manual methods. Depending on the chosen operation, the mechanical as well as the physical properties of the original material can change.

Despite its age, ram bending is still one of the most cost effective techniques around. During this procedure, tubes are fastened at two exterior points while bending rams press into the object’s centre axis. Power is transported by way of a vertical ramming cylinder, with the ram thrusting the tube against a couple of fixed rollers. This leads to it forming around the die. This technique is a go to approach when creating electrical conduits and vehicle exhaust pipes.

Mandrel bending is another widely used method, being rather precise and resulting in minor deformation. It’s able to bend thinner mediums to a radius that’s nearer than they could commonly endure without deforming or breaking because of interior augmentations. A somewhat flexible mandrel is introduced to the tube’s shaft at the angle it’s to be bent at.

At Multiform Tubes, we use various techniques in order to obtain the desired results. We are capable of providing tube bending services for all sorts of tubing materials, including the likes of brass, copper, and steel to name some, making ours an immensely versatile company.
