Leonhardt provides extensive tube bending services for a wide range of applications and tubular products.
When it comes to your tube fabrication project, not only do you want to know what tubing is right for you but you also want to determine the centerline radius. The centerline radius (CLR) is the distance from the center of the bending die to the centerline (axis) of the tube. Why should you know your CLR? The CLR should typically measure 2-3X the diameter of the tube (2D or 3D), depending on wall thickness.
Tubes can come in different shapes – round, square, rectangular or oval. But how do you know which is the right one for your project? Metal tubes are generally fabricated from steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper. These types of tubes can easily be bent into shape without the need for elbows or other fittings. Before you begin any tube bending project, it is important to think about what you need your product to do.
For many years product designers and engineers have had to face annoying compromises when designing tubular products. Traditional rotary draw tube benders required significant investment in bend tooling, as well as restrictions in part geometry due to the right hand/left rotation of standard benders. These considerations often lead to product designs that had commonized bend radii and simple designs. In other words … BORING!
