Steel tube bending springs are manufactured by GL Metal using tempered, oil-hardened steel that returns to its original state after it has been stretched out. The galvanized steel coating that is applied to each spring helps make it non-toxic, non-corrosive, and highly durable. These qualities make it an ideal material for use in a variety of applications and environments, whether indoors or outdoors. Contact us for a free quote today!
GL Metal pipe bending springs are available in various sizes; therefore, different types of pipes get suitable springs, fostering efficiency. We also specialize in making customized pipe bending springs if your pipes have unique dimensions, so you have nothing to worry about.
GL Metal is capable of supplying pie bend springs made of aluminum, thin-wall steel, and copper in various sizes, including 5/8-inch, 1/2 inch, 3/8 inch, 5/16 inch, and 1/2 inch measurements. These are the most common materials and sizes used today, but the company may also produce customized springs according to the customer's instructions.
These springs can either be categorized as bending springs or extension springs because they play roles that might be placed in either class. They are designed to offer the benefits of extension springs while performing their ultimate task of allowing pipes to bend without excessive stress.
Tube bender springs are effective tools used to keep pipes or tubes made out of brass, aluminum, soft copper, and thin steel from crimping or collapsing when they are bent (to angles ranging from 0 up to 180 degrees). You will generally see such springs used in areas like HVAC systems, construction sites, plumbing jobs, manufacturing applications, DIY applications, the automotive industry, and more.

When physically bending a pipe, a pipe bending spring is put into (or above) the pipe to hold the pipe walls. A bendable, metallic spring known as a "bending spring" is often used to curve PVC conduit pipes by giving them the internal stability required to produce a clean, distortion-free curve. The spring features a ring end on one end and a tapered end on the other.
They are only somewhat smaller in diameter than the pipe's internal diameter. Typically, this type of extension springs are exclusively employed to bend 15-25 mm soft copper pipe (used in household plumbing). Once its center is approximately where the bend should be, the pipe bending spring is forced into the pipe.
GL Metal is a specialist in the design and production of best-in-class stock and custom bending springs of multiple sizes and configurations. A bending spring is a sturdy, flexible metal spring that is fixated over or inserted into a pipe or tubing to support its walls when manually bending the pipe. GL Metals employs quality tested production process and uses high-grade materials to produce the best-quality bending springs.
Our highly durable bending springs are constructed from oil-hardened and tempered steel with a galvanized finish. With 20 years of production experience, GL Metal has unmatched manufacturing capabilities, complete with patented designs, durable construction, and a variety of customizable options.
GL Metal’s extensive product catalog features different types of bending springs, including:
Internal bending springs – You feed this spring into a pipe to help support the pipe’s walls during the bending process. The spring prevents the pipe from becoming distorted or creasing. The spring features a slightly thinner tapered end to feed into the pipe. It also has a ring at one end that you attach to a string or wire for retrieval if it goes out of reach inside the pipe. They are typically used for pipers with diameters between 15mm and 25mm.
External bending springs – You feed this type of spring over the pipe for support during the manual bending process. It features a slightly wider tapered end to insert the pipe. This type of bending spring is usually used for pipes with diameters under 15mm.
Hook and ring springs- these bending springs feature a hook and ring on either end. They enable you to connect several springs for larger projects and applications.
1. Can your bending springs be used for different types of pipes?
GL Metal’s bending springs are well-suited for bending copper, thin-wall steel, and aluminum pipes. Applicable common sizes include ¼ inch, ½ inch, 3/8-inch, 5/16 inch, and 5/8-inch pipes.
