CNC tube benders offer users a number of advantages that increase efficiency, speed, and accuracy. Because of the many advantages of a CNC tube bender, there is a wide range of uses for these machines.
Precision and Consistency
Two of the greatest advantages of CNC tube benders are precision and consistency. CNC tube benders are able to control for bend angles, complex bending formulas, and tooling specifications which allows them to create consistent precision bends. These types of bends are often found in automotive applications.
In fact, some of the most common CNC tube bender uses revolve around bending for the automotive industry. Fuel line and exhaust components, in particular, benefit greatly from high volume, precise, consistent bends. So, it is not surprising that these machines are so often used for these applications.
Other automotive applications include interior components and tubular systems that are found in cars, motorcycles, trucks, and buses. Often, for larger components, boost benders are used to ensure accurate bending without breaking.
As time goes on it is becoming more and more common for complex bends to be the norm. Across all industries, the demand for complex bends has never been greater. CNC tube benders are often the best solution for operations that need to meet these demands.
CNC tube benders allow manufacturers to quickly and efficiently set tooling, perform calculations, and meet customers demands for custom orders.
CNC Tube Bender Uses
CNC tube benders can be used to perform bends for a huge variety of applications. We already discussed some of the automotive applications, but there are many uses and applications for CNC tube benders including:
- Ship building
- Heaving industry
- Manufacturing equipment
- Consumer goods (like work out equipment and furniture)
This is just a small sample of a CNC tube benders uses!
