American Metal Fab: Innovating Pipe Bending Four Methods Unveiled

As detailed in the article “4 TYPES OF PIPE BENDING METHODS” by MetalExponents, pipe bending is crucial for modifying pipes to achieve specific angles or directions, essential for various applications like plumbing, HVAC-R systems, and fluid transfer.

Compression Bending, the simplest method, applies pressure to deform the pipe. Despite its simplicity, it ensures precision and is ideal for electrical conduit pipes.

Rotary Draw Bending offers higher precision and consistency by pulling the pipe towards a specific shape. This method is suitable for tubing parts used in machines and structural frameworks.

Roll Bending and Mandrel Tube Bending, though not elaborated in this summary, provide additional techniques for bending pipes with specific requirements.
