Experts in Custom Tube Bending
Axenics’ qualified technicians can bend plastics to fit almost any shape and/or space requirements, without the need for adding multiple joints and fixtures. It’s important to ensure that the appropriate amount of heat and consistent heat is applied to the tube being bent to avoid developing kinks, which can restrict liquid or chemical flow.
Plastic tube bending is a great solution for building systems where space is limited or a specific shape is required. Plastic tube bending is a great alternative to welding since it eliminates the need for multiple fittings within a system or complex assembly. Axenics performs custom tube bending and develops specialty tubing kits to meet a variety of business challenges for our customers.
Axenics is capable of bending the following polymer-based materials:
- Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE/FPA)
- Polypropylene (PP)
- High density polyethylene (HDPE)
- Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
Benefits of Plastic Fabrication
Though metal manufacturing services are highly valuable and critical to every manufacturing sector, there are many benefits that plastic manufacturing offers. Plastic offers a low-cost, flexible and durable solution to a variety of manufacturing challenges where other materials, such as metal or glass, might not be appropriate. With the right skills and expertise, plastics also might be fabricated or assembled in much the same way that other materials are.
Another important advantage to obtaining tube bending services from contract manufacturing companies such as Axenics is that we have a Class 100 cleanroom to ensure that every tube is bent using a clean process if that is necessary for your industry or operation. This service is desired by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in a range of industries where tube contaminants have the potential to ruin assembly systems or end products.
By having your pipe or tube bending services performed by Axenics, you get a reliable and durable bent tube that meets your specifications every time.
Creating the highest-quality bends in tubing is something that every manufacturer strives for. Over the years, there have been many technological advances and improvements in technique with regards to tube bending. However, regardless of the technology or technique used, there are a few factors that have remained the same.
