Glossary: Tube rolling & Tube bending
Tube bending :
A metal forming process used to form square or rectangular tubes to a specific degree or angle.Generally tube bending differs from tube rolling in that it is more concerned with forming the square or rectangular tube to a specificangle or degree, rather than a curve or radius.
-Tube bending is more commonly used to form a smaller, tighter radius that causes a more defined turn like that in an elbow.
-Tube bending can sometimes used as another word for tube rolling. Both refer to the metal forming processes in which square or rectangular tubes are formed to be used as arcs, curves, or Z-sections.
Tube rolling - :
Forming of square and rectangular tubes into arcs and curves at specific radiuses using a metal rolling process.
Tube rolling generally differs from Tube bending in that the curves are more gradual and form larger arcs and or rings.
Tube bending is more commonly used to form a smaller, tighter radius that causes a more defined turn like that in an elbow.
