What is mandrel tube bending?
Mandrel bending is a method of rotary draw bending, in which – the mandrel, a solid mandrel shaft with up to five segmented, donut shaped, balls that are just slightly smaller than the ID of the pipe/tube that is being bent – is inserted into the pipe/tube to provide internal support during bending.
Can titanium be mandrel bent?
Titanium Mandrel Bends. Other sizes available on request – subject to mill min order. Commercially Pure Titanium Grade 1 is the softest titanium and has the highest ductility.
What does a mandrel do?
mandrel, cylinder, usually steel, used to support a partly machined workpiece while it is being finished, or as a core around which parts may be bent or other material forged or molded.
Can you bend titanium pipe?
Generally, Titanium A40 (AMS 4902) can be bent on a 2 times centerline radius at room temperature. All titanium tubing generally requires elevated temp- eratures to bend less than 2 times centerline radius (for example, 1 or 1-½ times diameter).
What is a titanium exhaust?
A titanium exhaust is manufactured to prevent rust and decay and can also protect your exhaust from premature wear and tear.
What is the flow area of a mandrel bent pipe?

What is the difference between stock and mandrel pipes?
Stock. At bends in stock pipes, the reduced flow area of 2.5 sq. in. constricts exhaust flow. Mandrel. Mandrel bent pipes have a consistent flow area of 3.14 sq. in. to maximize exhaust flow. Be Careful What You Pay For !
Why choose Bob’s muffler pipes?
The improved flow that comes from a mandrel bent pipe makes Bob’s Muffler pipes, and systems superior. The mandrel bending process maintains a constant inside diameter, even through pipe bends.
