A bend die, clamp die, and pressure die are the minimum essentials for tube bending. The bend die helps to prevent the tube from flattening and forms a given radius of bend.
There are different kinds of rolling processes. Hot rolling (above the recrystallization temperature) mostly produces sheet metal. Most non-ferrous metal structures are rolled cold, but steel is usually rolled hot.
You might already know this but not all tubing is in the round or cylindrical shape. Some are constructed squares, triangles and many other shapes. Frankly the different shape of bending depends on the requirement and usage. Needless to say one factor always remains the same: The tubing needs to be free from any sort of nicks.
Heat induction – this is not a typical type of tube and pipe bender it is a method used by the bender. Heat is applies to that part in which the bend has to be made. These are used in petroleum pipe industry and power plants.
Rotary draw bender- a more precise type of bender is the rotary bender. It makes use of a constant center radius. The counter and the former dies work hand in hand on both the sides. The KP-LOK tubing bender bends without any kind of deformity. This bender is mostly used in rails, motorbike, and racing car cages.
To remove the supply lines, first turn off the water to using the shutoff valve. Once the water is off, turn the handles in the on position to remove any water pressure. Next you want to use an adjustable wrench to remove the nut that attaches the supply lines to the shutoff valves. You should then remove the nuts that attach the supply line to the two handled faucet. Then lift the supply lines out and save them for later, being careful not to accidentally bend them.
But if all that metal bending is too much for you, pick up those pipe cleaners and wow your kids with the colorful pipe-cleaner clowns you can form by bending metal at home.
