Uses for Multi-Radius Bending

Multiple bends in one cycle
Multi-radius bending is commonly used for complex parts when one continuous pipe or tube requires two or more center line radii. It is a good fit for parts with a large centerline radius, where hard tooling may not be an option or for complex... read more

Key Considerations For Laser Cutting

Reliability and efficiency for multiple applications
The term "laser" originated as an acronym for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation". Commonly used for parts manufacturing and other industrial applications, fiber laser cutting involves high-powered lasers that use a short wave... read more

The Facts About Mandrels

Learn about different types of mandrels and why they are used
Most tube and pipe bending is done using a mandrel, an aluminum-bronze alloy or solid steel insert that supports the pipe or tube while it is being bent. This common technique keeps the tube from collapsing, flattening or wrinkling during the... read more
