Low-Grade Exhaust Tubing Bender
The benefits of owning a small exhaust tubing bender are primarily for either small shops and home use. Obviously, the biggest pro relates to the initial price. If you do not have a large budget and operate your own independent shop for simple projects, a small tube bender can suffice. There are various small pipe bending units available if imperfections are of little to no importance.
Small, low costing pipe bending machines do not have the ability to meet most industry standards and quality requirements expected of post-production exhaust bends. They often require wrinkling and are typically incapable of maintaining the integrity of a pipe ovality. Additionally, they often don’t have the power capacity to complete the bend entirely.
High-Grade Exhaust Tubing Bender
The advantages of investing in a high-grade bending machine, such as our 300NC Tube Bender, apply to everyone from the small shop operation and above. These pipe and tube benders have the power to produce bends at the degree you need without compromising quality.
Additionally, high-grade bending equipment gives you complete overall control for more specific or unique bends. They eliminate any wrinkling, minimize wall thinning/flattening, and ensure the integrity of pipe ovality. The end result being superior quality bends that meet industry standards and a full control of an independent production output.
The cons of owning a high-grade exhaust tubing bender are the initial cost and maintaining the units. High-grade pipe and tube bending machines are exactly that – an investment. They also provide you with opportunities to save money on outsourcing bending duties, control production, and recover the investment costs over time.
A low-grade bender is a viable option if you are not concerned with quality. However, if you are looking for a bending system that solves your problems, investing in a high-grade bending machine is the way to go. Consider speaking to pipe and tube bending machine manufacturers like Hines Bending Systems to learn more about the advantages to you if you are still unsure.
