MLC Pipe Shaping and Bending – Multipipe
In this video, Martin from Multipipe shows how to bend pipe accurately into a certain shape or pattern using hands or various pipe benders and cutters. When it comes to MLC pipe shaping, there are many options available to you.
How to Bend Pipe Accurately Using Different Methods:
0:20 – With smaller sizes, pipe shaping and manipulation can be done using your thumb and fingers.
0:30 – Internal springs will slide down the internal sides of the pipe. As you bend the pipe with your hands, the internal spring will support the MLC pipe from the inside.
0:44 – External springs can be used for pipe shaping that is farther away.
0:58 – An alternative is to use a ratchet. To do so, slide the pipe into the ratchet system and increase the ratchet until you achieve your pre-set radius bend. This device takes the guesswork out of learning how to bend pipe accurately.
