When selecting a Tube Bending Machine, it's crucial to consider several key specifications. First, the machine's bending capacity: it should be able to handle the sizes, thicknesses, and materials of the tubes you'll be working with. Second, the bending techniques it employs, such as mandrel, roll, or rotary draw bending, each suitable for different applications. Third, consider the machine's precision and accuracy, especially if you require exact bends. Fourth, evaluate its ability to minimize deformation and maintain the tube's integrity during bending. Control systems also play a significant role: NC systems are ideal for simpler tasks, while CNC systems offer more advanced control for complex, high-volume production. Finally, look at features enhancing productivity, like multi-stack bending or automatic tool change systems, and ensure the machine's durability aligns with your operational demands.

Tube Bending Machines, particularly those available on Exapro, are engineered to shape tubes of varying sizes and materials into intricate bends and curves. They offer versatility in handling different tube profiles - round, square, rectangular, or even complex custom shapes. This makes them a go-to choice for a range of applications, from automotive exhaust systems and aerospace components to construction frameworks and furniture manufacturing.

The Tube Bending Machines on Exapro are sourced from leading manufacturers, ensuring consistent quality, performance, and longevity. They encompass both CNC (Computer Numerical Control) and NC (Numerical Control) models. CNC Tube Bending Machines, with their automated control and high precision, are perfect for industries requiring complex, high-volume production. On the other hand, NC Tube Bending Machines offer a cost-effective solution for simpler, repetitive bending tasks.

One of the defining characteristics of Tube Bending Machines is their ability to minimize deformation and maintain the structural integrity of the tube during the bending process. This is achieved through various methods such as mandrel bending, roll bending, or rotary draw bending, each suited for different applications and tube specifications.

These machines also come equipped with features to enhance productivity, such as multi-stack bending and automatic tool change systems. This allows for a seamless transition between different bending tasks, reducing downtime and optimizing workflow.

In the realm of second-hand machinery, Exapro serves as a trusted marketplace connecting buyers and sellers from around the globe. The platform is home to a vast array of Tube Bending Machines, each listed with comprehensive details and specifications to aid in your selection process.

Main characteristics to look at

Tube bending machines are specialized equipment designed to bend tubes and pipes to specific angles without compromising their structural integrity. They're used in a range of industries, from automotive and aerospace to construction and furniture manufacturing. Here are some of the main characteristics of tube bending machines:

  • Bending Capacity: Tube bending machines can handle tubes of various sizes, thicknesses, and materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and copper.
  • Bending Techniques: These machines employ several bending techniques, such as mandrel bending, roll bending, or rotary draw bending. Each technique is suitable for different applications and tube specifications.
  • Precision and Accuracy: Tube bending machines offer high precision and accuracy in bending tubes to the desired angles. This is particularly true for CNC tube bending machines, which use computer-controlled programming to ensure exact bends.
  • Minimized Deformation: A critical characteristic of tube bending machines is their ability to minimize deformation during the bending process. They are designed to maintain the tube's structural integrity and prevent wrinkling or collapsing.
  • Versatility: Tube bending machines can work with different tube profiles - round, square, rectangular, or even complex custom shapes.
  • Efficiency: Many tube bending machines come with features that enhance productivity, such as multi-stack bending and automatic tool change systems. These features reduce downtime between different bending tasks and streamline operations.
  • Control Systems: Tube bending machines may use either Numerical Control (NC) or Computer Numerical Control (CNC) systems. NC machines are generally more cost-effective and suitable for simpler, repetitive tasks, while CNC machines offer more advanced control for complex, high-volume production.
  • Durability and Longevity: These machines are built to withstand rigorous use, making them a long-lasting addition to manufacturing operations.

It's essential to consider these characteristics when choosing a tube bending machine, ensuring it meets your specific requirements and aligns with your production capabilities.

What budget to count with 

The price of a tube bending machine can vary widely based on several factors including its brand, model, age, condition, specifications, and whether it's new or used. Here are some general price ranges:

A basic, manual tube bender suitable for light-duty work could cost a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

A semi-automatic or NC (Numerical Control) tube bending machine might range from 10 000€ to 50 000€, depending on the machine's capabilities and the brand.

Advanced CNC (Computer Numerical Control) tube bending machines with high precision, speed, and automation features can cost from 50,000€ to several hundred thousand euros.

High-end, specialized tube bending machines designed for complex tasks or high-volume production could cost upwards of a million euros.

For a used machine, you should count between 15 000€ and 45 000€ though you can find full lines at a few hundred thousands euros. You can always use our pricing Algorithm Valorexo to pinpoint a fair market price.
