Two glossary related to steel pipe bending & rolling in 2020
Channel bending :
Pipe bending – A metal forming process used to form pipes to a specific degree or angle.Generally pipe bending differs from pipe 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.
-Pipe bending is more commonly used to form a smaller, tighter radius that causes a more defined turn like that in an elbow.
-Pipe bending can sometimes used as another word for pipe rolling. Both refer to the metal forming processes in which pipes are formed to be used as arcs, curves, or Z-sections.
Pipe rolling :
– Forming of pipes into arcs and curves at specific radiuses using a metal rolling process. Pipe rolling generally differs from Pipe bending in that the curves are more gradual and form larger arcs and or rings. Pipe bending is more commonly used to form a smaller tighter radius that causes a more defined turn like that in an elbow.
