What is a pipe bend?

Answer

The bent pipe or tube is prone to deformation on both the inside and outside curvature. The pipe or tube is often deformed into an oval shape depending on the wall thickness of the material. This type of bending is suitable for bending electrical conduit and similar light gauge product.

Pipe bending is a method used by plumbers to enhance the fabrication capabilities of pipe work and plumbing fixtures. The pipe is then placed onto a die after rotary arm rolling or compression has been established. Pipe comes in different thicknesses, and techniques differ with the diameter of each pipe. Cut partway through the pipe at intervals. Bend it, and then weld the cuts closed. It's a simple method, but because it is slow and usually produces a weak and ugly product. Pay a vendor to bend your pipe. They use machines that roll bend. Bolt a 1/4-inch steel top table to the floor. The pipe is bent over and around the jig. Because the pipe is also bent against the table, it is important to have a solid table top. Fill the pipe with baked or dried sand before bending it to prevent kinks on tight bends with steel pipe. If the pipe you are bending is thin enough, heat is not required. Using muscle strength, start bending. This method only works with thinner pipe.
