Here we will show you the pipe bending process of our M style bike rack.

Before bending the pipe, there are several preparation steps:
1.Besides the bender, we need to make dies according to the pipe specs and bending radian based on the drawings.
2.There is a mandrel required as well to support the wall pipe, avoiding deformation during bending.
3. Check the pipe - If there is any flaw, remove too much rust.

Everything is ready, the pipe can be bent.

It doesn’t look like a full M bike rack? That’s correct. We are making M bike rack with 3 wave crest. Usually a pipe is cut in 6 meters, it’s not long enough for 3 wave crest, so we have to bend 2 pipes and weld them together. See! That’s it!

Should you have any interest in bike racks or metal fabrication, please feel free to contact us. We will be happy to serve you.
