Quality Mandrel Bending
Mandrel bending is a pipe and tube bending technique that uses a solid steel rod inserted into the pipe while it is bent. This gives the pipe an even bend without breaking or wrinkling the pipe at the bend. Mandrel bending utilizes a machine designed to bend thin tubing on a very tight radius with close to zero deformations.

With mandrel bending, bends with radii as tight as the diameter of the tube are possible, whereas with empty bending (bends without an internal mandrel) the acceptable radii are usually two to three times the diameter. Performance automotive, motorcycle, or marine exhausts are common applications of mandrel bending provided by Parker Fabrication, Inc..
Mandrel bending can also employ plug, form, ball, cable or sand. You can always count on Parker Fabrication, Inc. to provide professional mandrel bending. We can handle any mandrel bending job, as we have a wide set of dies that we use for any bending task. Parker Fabrication Inc. also deals with the highest levels of accuracy and precision in the fabrication of mandrel bends.
Other applications that require mandrel bending aside from exhaust systems are piping systems and other tubular systems. Parker Fabrication Inc. can also use bending springs, where strong flexible springs act as a mandrel. These springs have diameters only slightly less than the internal diameter of the pipe to be bent, making them suitable for bending 15-and-22 mm (0.6-and-0.9 in) soft copper pipe (typically used in household plumbing) or PVC pipe.
