Pipe Bending Industry Forecast Calls for Rapid Growth Through 2022
The global bending machine market is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.97% through 2022, according to the Pipe Bending Machines Market report released in March 2018 by Technavio, a leading global research company.
Pipe bending machines and pipe benders have experienced recent demand, and according to Technavio’s findings, the surge will continue in the United States and in other countries – which is great news for Axenics. There are virtually no differences between tube bending and pipe bending machines; the materials used on the machines, obviously, differ.
Plastic tube bending is one of the primary services at Axenics. Our team has the expertise to bend plastic tubing into precise shapes and can bend plastic into the same shapes that stainless steel tubing can be bent into.
The Pipe Bending Machines Market report canvases the current market size of the pipe bender along with the growth rate and forecast from 2012 to 2022. The report recognizes key players in the field, such as manufacturers, raw material suppliers, equipment suppliers, end users, traders and distributors. Data was compiled from annual reports of companies, journals and websites, and data was verified by market experts. The report looked at pipe bending machines primarily in North America, Europe, China, Japan and Southeast Asia.
CNC pipe bending machines were one of the major classifications of the Pipe Bending Machines Market report. At Axenics, we perform precision tube bending using the latest Horn Metric TBRE Hybrid CNC Bender. This type of CNC bending tool offers mandrel bending and roll bending combined to better meet original equipment manufacturers’ specifications for components and tube assemblies.
The Horn Metric TBRE Hybrid CNC bender used by Axenics is the perfect solution for a variety of applications, across all industries. The TBRE model series bender is one of the most popular bending machines in the U.S. due to its vast capabilities, versatility, reliability and exceptional performance levels. Some of the most common applications it can be used for include:
- Military/Defense applications
- Aerospace applications
- Medical Device application
- Automotive applications
- Semiconductor applications
Here are a few key reasons why you should consider CNC tube bending for your next project:
If you’re looking to keep costs down, while still achieving quality results, CNC tube bending is a cost-efficient solution to consider. Precision tube bending allows manufacturers to eliminate the need to purchase a large number of joints and fixtures that are required with joint welding, the cost of which can add up quickly.
The CNC bender also allows for tube bending processes to be primarily automated, eliminating the need for a large staff of welding technicians. Most bends can be performed by the machine and checked after the fact by a bending technician, which cuts down on labor costs throughout the course of your project, especially in cases of high-volume orders.
Because the machine can automate much of the process, there is far less manual labor involved, which allows the process to move along more quickly. Because CNC tube bending eliminates the need for using joints and fixtures to connect and secure components, labor time can be saved here as well.
In addition, the precision with which a CNC bending machine is able to perform allows for consistent and accurate bends, which will cut down on time spent having to fix or “re-do” welds that don’t meet quality standards. Custom bends can also be performed easily and provide a more efficient and faster solution to fitting unique spaces and designs.
Quality & consistency:
Utilizing a CNC bender not only guarantees a high-quality product but also allows the service provider to achieve the same high-quality result over and over again. Bend radii can be set to fit necessary specifications, and you can rely on the machine to bend accurately each and every time a tube is run through it.
By using a computer-controlled bending machine, there is less of a chance that the end product will have defects, and by eliminating joints and welds within the complex assembly system, there is less opportunity for leaks or cracks to occur.
