Induction Bending

Induction Bending is a CNC steel bending service offered by Kubes Steel.  A bending force is applied while simultaneously applying an electromagnetic current to heat a small section of steel, resulting in very smooth bends.  We offer up to 30″ diameter induction bending of Pipe & Tube, & 24″ by 24″ for HSS.  Contact us today, or watch our induction bending videos to see more.

  • Pipe Bending to 30″ Diameter

  • Structural Bending to 30″ Depth

  • HSS Bending to 24″ x 24″

  • Continuous Bends to 54′ Length

  • S-Bends & Complex 3D Bending

  • Carbon, Stainless & Alloys

Kubes Steel supplies high quality, economical induction bending for pipe and sections for the North American market. Kubes can induction bend pipe up to 30″ (762mm) with high precision.

Advanced PLC induction pipe bending equipment ensures a quality product. We always record and control the key parameters of temperature, bend speed, angle and power.

Our experienced inspection team ensures the dimensions are correct and other parameters critical for conformance are met.

Typical markets for induction pipe bending we supply are: Mining and Quarrying, Oil and Gas, Ship Building and Construction.

Induction Bending Projects:

At Kubes Steel, induction bending is one of our specialties. Our skilled operator performed the induction bending service on these thick stainless steel pipe sections. Due to the thickness, careful preparation had to be taken to ensure a proper bend without damaging the pieces.

Kubes Steel is your one stop shop for fabrication. We provided all the services needed to fabricate this 30 ton heavy industrial lift ring, including connector fittings, cold bending and welding. All pieces are load tested in the shop and will be delivered to the customer ready to assemble.

Our team induction bends sections of pipe to customer requirements and inspects the finished product.
