Tube & Section Bending
Used to make bike frames and street furniture, this process is used to form continuous and fluid metal structures. Tight bends can be formed with a mandrel over a rotating die, or long and undulating curves between rollers. Bending methods are generally inexpensive and make use of the ductility and strength of metal. It minimises cutting and joining in certain applications, which reduces waste and cost.
