Induction pipe bending is the process by which pipes made of materials that conduct electricity are bent. The bending process involves utilizing high-frequency induction heating on a tube by exposing it to eddy currents induced by a fluctuating electromagnetic field. The result facilitates the much-required precision control of pipe and tube steel bending. Uniform heating is regulated via a computer controlled system and is monitored via infrared cameras. The bending technology was originally introduced in the 1960s and has since become a significant benefit to a multitude of industries that use it.
