Tube Bending ToolsTo ensure you always get a good bend, it is critical to select and properly use the correct set of tools for the job.
Using bad or unsuitable tools will lead to defects and problems which could end up having an effect on the funcationality of the bending parts.
The best way to avoid unpleasant complications is to buy the tools as part of a set. Buying them individually can lead to problems.
When choosing tools it is necessary to consider the applications for the tools.
For example, for bending strong-walled tubes around a large radius, you can use standard tools with no modifications.
On the other hand, if you need to bend thin-walled tubes around a very small radius, you will need precise tools, which have special modifications like INTERLOCK or LIP. These specifications are usually found in the aeronautical industry. You can find more information about this in our Bending Guide.
