Inflatable bend forms against wrinkles
PVC tube can be bent in various ways. Usually, the tube is
heated and bent around a rigid former. A part is installed inside
the tube to prevent wrinkles at the bend. Sometimes, this is a
steel flat spring, or, in case of pipes with a large diameter, a
flexible rubber cylinder. Often, the methods used are impractical
or made of expensive materials.
Buitink developed a light weight inflatable bend former. Its
light weight means it is easy to use. In addition, it is made of
relatively inexpensive materials. The former is made of a gas-tight
core, which can be inflated to the desired pressure, and cloth made
of an inelastic material. Using this former, tubes with a large
diameter can be easily and quickly bent. The former can be custom
made. Contact us for more information.
