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)
