Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken: Tube Bending and Piping Facts

Fully automated bending enables the auto industry to produce complex fabrications and contours. Through tube bending and piping, metal or steel fabricators can easily create flexural tubing with varying diameters for highly complex applications.

JCM Equipment shares some further information below.

Specifics and Standards

Typically, the process of tubing produces steel pipes ranging from 6 – 50 mm diameters. Depending on the versatility of the tubing equipment, the auto shop can quickly produce tubing dimensions of the following proportions:

For Rolled Steel St37

  • 26.9 x 2.65 mm
  • 33.7 x 3.25 mm
  • 42.4 x 3.25 mm
  • 48.3 x 2.9 mm

For 1.4301 Equiv. Plates

  • 26.9 x 2 mm
  • 33.7 x 2 mm
  • 42.4 x 2 mm

For Carbon Stainless Pipes/Tubes St35 NBK

  • 19 x 2 mm
  • 25.3 x 3 mm
  • 30 x 3 mm
  • 38 x 4 mm

Tube Bending Coverage Areas

Tube bending and piping allows auto repair shops, metal workers, companies, and industrial manufacturers to make their own unique brand and specs of tubing. As a highly contested necessity responsible for all kinds of machinery, from automotive to multifunctional use, its demand is an ever-present force in technological development.

In Comparison to Welded Counterparts

Tube bending is particularly effective compared to welded designs because it can exactly produce fine details. It is also able to produce efficiently and effectively despite large fabrication demands, making it the preferred equipment for the busiest and most successful industrial-type businesses.

Tube Bending Price Points

Before, fabrication and construction companies have no other options besides welding. Typically, industries who weld their tubes and pipes use up more resources than normal, as welding needs consistent replacement of rods for connecting steel together. But, thanks to the increasing popularity of tube bending equipment, it’s now possible to produce massive steel piping products in a more cost-effective way.

Tube bending and piping is the modern way to fabricate steel products. It offers a better alternative to the traditional process of welding.
