Induction Pipe Bending



Induction Pipe Bending

Induction pipe bending is a relatively new technology that originated in Eastern Europe in the 1960’s, and all the way through until the 1970’s the machines were only used for bending large diameter pipes, upwards of 60” (1524mm) outside diameter in some cases. It wasn’t until the mid-late 1970’s that the first commercial induction pipe bending machines were manufactured to cover smaller diameter pipes of around 6”-28”, these were produced in either the USA, UK or Japan.


Pipe Bending / Tube Bending



Pipe Bending / Tube Bending

It’s worth a mention firstly that there are two common terms used in industry, tube bending and pipe bending. Tube is measured by the outside diameter whereas pipe is measured by the inside diameter. Pipe sizing refers to the nominal inside diameter, sometimes called nominal bore, rather than the actual inside diameter.
