Electric tube benders are highly regarded in modern engineering. They offer unparalleled precision, efficiency, and versatility in tube and pipe bending.

At Tubela Engineering Co. Ltd., we pride ourselves on providing top-of-the-line electric benders that cater to a wide range of industrial needs.

This blog looks into the technical aspects, benefits, and diverse applications of our electric tube benders, illustrating why they are an essential tool for professionals seeking accuracy and repeatability in their projects.

Why Choose Electric Tube Benders?


1. Exactness and Accuracy


Electric tube benders, especially those in the CBC UNI Digital Electric Series, are designed for extreme accuracy. With the simple push of a button, these machines deliver precise bends with minimal deformation, ensuring that each piece meets exact specifications. This precision is critical in industries where even the slightest deviation can lead to significant issues.

2. Speed and Efficiency

Electric benders operate quickly and efficiently, significantly reducing the time required to complete bending tasks. Their automated nature means that multiple bends can be performed rapidly and consistently, increasing overall productivity and reducing labour costs.

3. Versatility

The CBC UNI range is capable of handling a wide variety of materials, including thick-walled steel, stainless steel, hydraulic steel, aluminium, and specialised materials like CDS and T45. Whether you are working with gas pipes, roll cages, or car chassis, these benders provide the flexibility needed to tackle any job.

4. Repeatability

One of the standout features of electric tube benders is their ability to produce repeated bends with exact precision. This repeatability is crucial for mass production and ensures that every piece is identical, maintaining high quality and uniformity across all products.

Applications of Electric Tube Benders


1. Industrial Fabrication


Electric tube benders are essential in industrial fabrication. They create precise components used in machinery, structural frameworks, and other heavy-duty applications. The precision and repeatability of electric benders ensure that all parts meet stringent industry standards.

2. Automotive Manufacturing

In the automotive industry, electric benders are used for roll cages, chassis components, and more. The ability to produce consistent bends is crucial for ensuring the safety and performance of automotive parts.

3. Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineering requires the highest level of precision and reliability. Electric tube benders are used to create components for aircraft and spacecraft, where exact dimensions are critical for performance and safety.

4. Plumbing and Gas Installation

For plumbing and gas installation, electric benders provide the accuracy needed to ensure proper fit and function. These machines can handle both thick and thin-walled pipes, making them versatile tools for various installation needs.

5. Custom Metalworking

Artisans and custom fabricators use electric tube benders to create bespoke designs and structures. The precise control offered by digital electric benders allows for intricate and unique bends that meet specific design requirements.

Technical Insights into Electric Tube Bending

Electric System Components

●      Digital Controller: Provides precise control over the bending process, allowing operators to set and adjust bend angles with high accuracy.

●      Electric Motor: Powers the bending mechanism, ensuring consistent performance and reducing the need for manual labour.

●      Bending Formers: These are customisable formers that determine the bend radius and angle. High-quality formers are essential for achieving the desired bend without deformation.

●      Mandrel Support: Available in advanced models like the UNI120D, mandrel support prevents tube collapse and ensures smooth bends, especially in thin-walled materials.

Bending Process

  1. Setup: Select and install the appropriate bending former. Secure the tube in place, ensuring it is properly aligned.
  2. Programming: Use the digital controller to set the desired bend angle and parameters. This ensures precision and repeatability.
  3. Bending: Activate the machine to perform the bend. The electric motor drives the bending process, ensuring smooth and accurate results.
  4. Inspection: Remove the tube and inspect the bend for accuracy. Make any necessary adjustments for future bends.
