Mandrel bending is a technique used by companies to bend stainless steel tubing for a variety of uses and industries. There are hundreds of different types of exhaust tubes used in motorcycles, cars, trucks and various other vehicles. Mandrel bending is a bending process that puts a solid steel rod into the tube while it is being bent. In addition, this process creates a bend without wrinkling or breaking the tube. By using this technique you can get a more precise bend. This becomes increasingly advantageous for doing exhaust pipe bends.
Besides mandrel bending, there is also crush bending options as well. Crush bending the tube is held in place on the ends and then the pressure is placed where the bend needs to be. This process is usually a quicker and cheaper option. Meanwhile, a mandrel bending the tube goes through a hydraulic press and bends it with a bending die. When it comes to accuracy and quality, mandrel bending is the preferred method.
