Technology Changes in Pipe Bender Machine

Pipe bender machine is used in the production of bending pipes and tubes for different industries. Tube bending machines are mostly used in the furniture, construction, marine, automotive, heating and cooling industries. Pipe bender machines pretty common machines to produce a variety of parts, including chairs, tables, bed, handrails, radiator, exhaust and etc.

Pipe bending machine’s technology is changed in years, at the beginning the tube bender machines were produce with basic button control and hydraulic power unit. But today with the help of technology, pipe bender machines have alternative technology and software solutions. Such as NC or CNC software alternatives and also working alternatives as hydraulic, servo axes and etc.

With the improvement on pipe bending machine technology, also product results and range became more complex today, if you compare today’s chairs and tables with ol models, you will realize the effect of tube bending machines in furniture industry, we can say similar things also for other industry which use pipe bender machineries products.

After simple hydraulic pipe bender machines, we started to see NC control tube bender machines, which has PLC based control system. After servo engines usage on pipe bending machines and PC based software capabilities we faced with advanced CNC pipe bending machines. Advantage of CNC tube bending machines can be changed according to machine model and producers, the good CNC pipe bending machine software became the key point, also machine construction design capability as well.

Today we see in the market pretty advanced CNC pipe bending machines.

New Technology Pipe Bender Machines

Fully electric CNC pipe and tube bending machines : This tube and pipe bender machine is using servo engines for all moving parts and electricity consumption of fully electric CNC pipe and tube bender machine is lower than other pipe bending machines. With the help of advanced speed, power and timing control capability on each moving parts, pipe, profile and tube bending quality are also increasing with this new pipe bending machine technology, but again the pipe bender machine software and tube bender machine construction design is becoming key points.

Right and Left CNC pipe and tube bending machines : This pipe bending machine technology needs definitely advanced CNC pipe bending machine software and very good tube bending machine construction design. Right and Left pipe bending machines are helping to pipe bending machine operator to avoid crashing problem, at some difficult pipe bending work, there is always risk to crash pipe bending machine head or other points, right&left pipe bending machines can avoid these risks.

Multi stacks CNC tube and pipe bender machines : This is most common CNC pipe bender machine model at the moment in the market, multi stacks CNC tube bender machine can give flexibility to bend different radiuses at the same pipe and tube bending work. Also for bigger radiuses these types of CNC pipe bending machines can give the rolling or push bending chance during pipe bending work.

Today mostly companies are still using more basic pipe bending machines, for typical easy bending works or low production capacity, CNC pipe bending machine investment still can be considered as not profitable investment. But technology increase on tube bending machines is forcing specially furniture producers to have more complex pipe bender machines, because technology change in pipe bending machine gives furniture designer to make more complex furniture design capability.
