The Basics: Tube Bending Dies

Why tube bending dies

Tube bending dies are essential to the tube bending process because they prevent the tube from flattening or buckling and ensure that the bend is performed correctly.

A clamp die will hold the tube in position while it is being bent. A bend die prevents the tube from flattening and forms the radius of the bend. Finally, the pressure die forces the tube into the bend die.

Types of Dies Available

There are many different types of tube bending dies available, and finding the right set of dies is necessary to ensure a proper bend without buckling or wrinkling. Unsurprisingly, the right set of tube bending dies is often determined by the given application.

This is why we offer a full complement of wrap-around tube bending tooling services.
