We perform bending and roll bending operations on tubes, pipes, section bars and tubular elements in stainless steel. Bent stainless steel tubes are particularly required for use in external environments. This is because of their resistance to corrosion, which is very important when surfaces are put to the test by atmospheric agents, without losing any of their mechanical strength.
It is absolutely essential for stainless steel bars to be handled with the maximum care and attention, because any nicks or scratches would be visible and often difficult to remove.
The certificate of conformity of the stainless steel alloy guarantees the ability to trace data that is often fundamental, like the casting lot, chemical analysis and much more.
The processes possible on stainless steel tubes and pipes are bending and roll bending.
What determines the use of one or the other is the average bend radius: in fact, in theory, it is possible to bend the tube when the average radius does not exceed 5 times the value of the tube’s cross section, while for radii that exceed this proportion, roll bending will be the choice.
Another key factor in the choice of one method rather than the other is the thickness of the material.
