Tube/Pipe Bending

Our CNC mandrel bending machines along with over 40 years of expertise have proven Uneek Bending to be one of the leading bending and rolling companies in Australia.

Using technical expertise, computer technology and modern equipment, Uneek Bending can achieve the most complex bending requirements including 3D bending from simple 2D drawings.

We have a huge range of tooling for both pipe bending and tube bending as well as special tooling for bending rectangular hollow sections, aerofoil sections and oval tube. Our equipment can also be used to produce sharp bends in angle, channel and aluminium extrusions.

We are happy to assist you with all your pipe bending needs and tube bending challenges. We solve many architectural aluminium section rolling problems every day and have designed special tooling for tough aluminium extrusion bending jobs.

The Art of Bending
Read our page entitled The Fine Art of Tube Bending to get a taste of how much work goes into every single one of our bends

Tight Radius Bends
Tight radius bends, often called 1D bends are frequently used in demanding engineering applications such as power generation and petrochemical industries, these bends are hard to produce whilst keeping the wall thickness and ovality to a minimum. Uneek Bending have manufactured several thousand of these bends for superheater coils used in power generation and boiler plants.

Aside from its expertise in the power and petrochemical industries Uneek Bending also has customers with a wide range range of different requirements. We can produce custom handrails, balustrades, staunchions, bullbars or virtually any bend to suit your needs, all on our precise, modern CNC bending machines.

Specialised Tube Bending for Boilers
Platen type superheaters often require use of squeezed bends on the inner most loops of the superheater (picture). To achieve this tube bends are made to a larger radius then hot squeezed down to the required center to center distance.

Quality Assurance in Boiler Tube Bending
Uneek ensure that all our boiler tube bends meet the critical requirements of Australian standard AS1228 and AS4458, in particular the requirements of ovality and thinning of boiler tube bends. If required Uneek Bending can carry our further heat treatment and fabrication required in the manufacture of superheater elements, re-heater elements and econoomiser banks.
