Our techniques for pipe bending can be broken down into two categories, cold pipe bending and induction pipe bending.

Cold Pipe Bending

Cold Pipe Bending employs standard rolling and bending equipment to form the pipe at room temperature into the desired shape.

Induction Pipe Bending

Induction Pipe Bending employs a combination of heat (induced electrically into the workpiece) and mechanical force to form the pipe into the desired shape.

Cold Pipe Bending

At Advanced Bending Technologies, we have extensive experience in the bending of pipe and tubing for a wide variety of products, from simple bending for hand rails and bicycle racks to high-precision bends for industrial piping systems and instrumentation equipment. Our experienced staff provides precision bending for a wide variety of products, including everything from plain carbon steel to exotic alloys, brass, aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel. Ongoing upgrading of our tooling and specialized bending equipment ensures that we keep pace with the ever-changing needs of our customers.

Roll Bending

Standard pipe sizes up to NPS 10″. Radii of 36″ and larger, angles up to 360 degrees.

Rotary Draw Bender

Standard pipe sizes up to NPS 10″. Radii as tight as 2D, angles up to 180 degrees.

Custom-Built Bender

All Pipe Sizes up to 48″ OD x 1″ wall.

Induction Pipe Bending

High-precision induction bends in carbon, alloy, and stainless steels up to 48″ (1219mm) in diameter are “standard procedure” for our highly experienced Induction Pipe Bending production team. Our customers in the energy sector demand the quality, consistency, and repeatability that only Induction Pipe Bending can provide. The typical quality issues such as excessive ovality and wall thinning that can affect standard cold bending are avoided when Induction Pipe Bending is employed.

Our high-precision induction pipe bends are backed by careful inspection. Every bend produced by our Induction Pipe Bending team is thoroughly inspected.

The following information is measured and recorded:

  • Induction Bending Temperature

  • Degree of Bend

  • Material Hardness

  • Percentage of Ovality

  • Percentage of Wall Thinning

Our Induction Pipe Bending procedures comply with the following industry codes and standards:

  • ASME B31.1 – Power Piping

  • ASME B31.3 – Process Piping

  • CSA Z245.11-17 – Steel Fittings

  • TPA-IBS-98 – Recommended Std’s for Induction Bending of Pipe and Tube

  • PFI ES-24 – Pipe Bending Methods, Tolerances, Processes and Material Requirements

Where other codes and standards apply, our capable technical staff will work with you to ensure that the specific requirements of your induction pipe bending project are met. Contact us to request a quote on Induction Pipe Bending!
