Tube Bending Equipment: Essential for Plumbing, Cars, and Other Everyday Applications

Posted by Mike Thomas

When you think of tubes and pipes, what comes to mind? For many, plumbing is the first thought, but there are plenty of other everyday objects that use tubes and pipes. From pipes for fuel and liquids in our cars to objects such as musical instruments (think the U-bend of a trombone), any item that requires piping also requires those tubes to be bent at a specific angle or curve. After all, it's rare to see plumbing applications with nothing but straight pipes.

Tubes and pipes formed for specific purposes and machinery are often completed on tube bending equipment, which uses a variety of tube bending formulas and techniques to achieve the proper angle and shape for the pipe. Pipe and tube bending equipment can include such devices as dies, mandrels, and various types of presses that form the tube's shape. For the most part, this equipment is operated in factories, workshops, and other locations with professional manufacturers. However, some plumbers may also rely on tube bending equipment for custom piping jobs.
