Hot metal bending is a process by which metal, in the form of tube, pipe, bar, or rods, is softened by heat to allow the material shape to be altered to exact specifications. Max Weiss’ unique process offers tight bend radii in degrees that can withstand more altering than cold forming methods.

Hot Bending Materials

  • Stainless Steel
  • Structural Steel
  • Carbon Steel
  • Copper
  • Aluminum

The hot bending process delivers highly-accurate forming, maintenance of thickness, and excellent component strength. Max Weiss utilizes gas forges and large C-frame presses for hot metal bending that provides flexibility to create complex parts with tight tolerances.

Applications for Hot Metal Bending

Hot metal bending provides structurally sound support and repair of various components, making it a preferred bending process among industries, including:

  • Agriculture
  • OEM
  • Mining
  • Transportation
  • Plumbing
  • Construction
  • & More!
