Solving Tube Bending Problems
Triad Products offers turnkey manufacturing of bent tubular assemblies, so we’re able to handle the unique designs our customers require. The challenges typically faced include spring-back, damaged tooling, and managing cost. Often, we’re creating bends using hard-to-work-with materials, like stainless steel and other popular alloys that can be difficult to bend. So how does Triad combat these issues?
How Does Triad Accommodate Spring-back?
Spring-back occurs after the metal is bent, where the material will try to return to its original shape. Spring-back opens bends in the material, so the diameter must be held until the desired rotation degree is met. Triad Products has over 40 years of experience, so our team knows the art to overbend and how to compensate for spring-back.
How Does Triad Maintain Tool & Avoid Damaged Tooling?
Triad Products is a small-medium volume manufacturer that uses manual tube bending equipment. We regularly service our tools as needed to stretch product life, and Triad utilizes custom tube bending techniques to maintain the quality of the tool. These bending services include:
