Description

This Tubela developed 'Thin-Walled Bending Kit' for the Tubela Model 3 & JD2 Model 3 Tubebenders was originally designed to help our customers bend Stainless Steel on their Model 3 tubebenders. Stainless Steel is genereally stiffer and less maleable than steel, so harder to bend without wrinkling. It also just happens to bend thinner Steel and thinner Stainless than the original fixed Guide, giving you a rounder back and less ovaling. It will also bend thin walled Aluminium aswell as thin wall stainless steel tube - as pictured.

Whats do you need to do

1. Put the Thin-Walled Bending Kit in your basket.

2. Then come back here and choose the size of Guide you require from the dropdown list.

3. Have your bought your Tooling already. If not then you will to buy that aswell. As the kit is an add on. And you nedd a Former for your chosen size and radii to work with the kit.

 

Whats in the Kit

Everything you need to start bending thineer wall or stainless tube. Provided you already have the Tooling.

Also an Anti-Spring Back Bar (ASB Bar) is used. Spring back is a major cause of wrinking as it allows the tube in the Former to relax. So locking the tension in the system prevents this. Plus it aids your bending efforts as the tube and Former do not pull back due to the spring, meaning less work for you.

Whats not in the kit

A Guide that has been specifically machined to a certain size for that OD of tube. Choose from the dropdown.

Tooling/Former to bend the size of tube you want.

*Model 3 Tubebender is not included.

 

Additionally, with the kit you can go down a size in radii: for example minimum thickness in steel for 1"1/2OD x 6.5"CLR is 1.5mm, with the kit the 5.5" Radii at this thickness is possible, where normally it would be 2.1mm. Stainless Steel Tube Bending can also bend steel to 1.8mm wall at the 5.5" radius.

The kit utlises technology we developed for our Copper and thin-walled Ratchet machines.

Galvnised pipe: the Slide Guide moves with the pipe thus helping to preserve the galvanised coating, compared to a standard fixed guide that would strip the coating off as the pipe is pulled through..

 

Current sizes on offer, see the Specifications tab.

We are expanding the range, so if you have a requirement not listed then please get in touch, send us some tube and we will test and make a kit for you, as it does require precision measuring and machining in the making of the Slide Guide.


NOTE:

Kits are made to order, expect 5/7days.
