CNC Tube Bender
CNC Tube benders are a rarity compared with CNC Mills, CNC Lathes and CNC Routers. There aren’t too many hobbyists with one. Most often you will find them in Muffler Shops bending specific exhaust pipes from straight stock. An operator will feed the straight stock in, then the machine will bend it to varying angles at various points along the length.
The hobbyists I have heard of owning these machines usually work with Off Road Vehicles. They use these CNC Tube Benders to make roll cages, push bars, engine guarding and unique racing parts.
