Challenges of Tube Bending Custom Lighting Fixtures
December 27, 2022
Tube bending is a frequent process in lighting fixture assembly. Whether you’re looking at stainless steel or brass, you can encounter many challenges when custom bending metal. Maybe you don’t have the capacity to complete your project in-house, or you’re looking at a tight deadline or want to reduce expenses, or maybe the task just falls outside of your expertise. Whatever your situation or circumstances, we can help you solve any lighting tube bending challenges.
Challenges of Metal Bending Complex Designs
There are several challenges OEMs face when beginning the metal bending process. As lighting tube bending designs grow more complex, the number of problems increases.
With complex designs, how to avoid damaging the material used is always a challenge when tube bending for lighting fixtures. Determining how to support large, heavy lighting fixtures while simultaneously protecting internal wires is also a challenge that the OEM should consider. Once a design has been finalized, the next challenge is repeatedly producing multiple exact components if you’re manufacturing more than one lighting fixture.
Coming up with solutions for these complex metal bending challenges will help ensure a quality end result for your custom lighting tube bending application.
