How to Buy a Tube and Pipe Bender

The key to purchasing the correct tube and pipe bender for your application is often accurately gathering all of the specification data and providing that data to the distributor or manufacturer you are working with.

Some of the specifications that are important include things like the tube OD, tube WT, tightest bend radius, how many bends are in your part, annual volume expectations, the material type, and if a fully automated or integrated system is necessary. These specifications are a good starting point, but the more detail you can provide the better a supplier or manufacturer is going to be able to match you to a bending solution.
