The induction bending machine, also known as high frequency bending machine, incremental bending or hot pipe bending machine, which uses inductors to locally heat steel by induction. This results in a narrow heat band in the shape to be bent. The shape is firmly held by a clamp at the desired radius, which is mounted on a free pivoting arm. The shape is pushed through the inductor by an accurate drive system which causes the hot section to form the induction bend at the set radius. The bent part is then cooled by water, forced or still air to fix the bend shape.
The high quality induction bending machine ensures that the induction bending process is continuous and highly automated areas of application.
