Tube Bending Tool
of the most crucial aspects of any tube bending job is
choosing the proper bending tool. Tools for Bending,
in its FREE Tube and Pipe Bending Manual, offers information and advice
on the most common types of bending tools.
There are several methods of bending, including compression bending,
press bending, crush bending and rotary draw bending. Each of these methods
of bending requires a different bending tool.
Tools for Bending’s quality design of the tube bending tool will
ensure the bending job is accomplished without wrinkles, scratches or
slippage. Proper set-up and use of the bending tool
will insure maximum tube ovality and cosmetics, while maximizing tool
Tools for Bending can extend the life of your tube bending tool through
its proprietary surface treatment, Kro-Lon. Kro-Lon also prevents tube
scratches. Bending tools (mandrels and wiper dies) treated with Kro-Lon
outlast bending tools with hard chrome by 2:1, according to testing
and customer reports. Kro-Lon can be re-applied as long as the base metal
is not worn down for less than 10% of new.
Tools For Bending Assists You:
- Quality design tube bending tools for every type of bending (compression,
press, crush, rotary, etc).
- Kro-Lon surface treatment extends life of your tools
and prevents scratches.
- SpeedShift Tool Set bending tool kit gives
you more versatility in tube bending applications while increasing productivity
with its quick interchange technology.
- Empty Bend bending tools are easy to set up,
and do not require mandrel or wiper dies.
Tools for Bending has also patented its Empty Bend Tools. This type of
bending tools provides just-in-time manufacturing for rotary
tube bending machines. These tube bending tools are easier to set up,
no mandrel or wiper die. Lubrication is eliminated, so cleaning becomes
much simpler. Clamp pressure can be reduced with these tube bending tools.
A typical application for Empty Bending would be a one or two ball mandrel
with a wiper die.
