Established bending tool types are: Standard Bends, U-Bending, Offset Bending, Edgewise Bending and Torsion Bending. In their own categories, respectively, are CNC Bending machines and Universal Bending Machines-Modular Construction. Classifications are determined by the kind of bends they generate.

Standard Bending tools produce bends without extraordinary geometry. The distance between a bend and material end is rather high, assuming an adequate bearing area. The same is also true from one bend to the next.

U-Bending tools make, as the name implies, “U”-shaped rods, like piping for below sinks. When the required bends are more tight and narrow than the tool can handle, a U-Bend tool is swapped out for a bending mandrel, which has narrow geometry. Offset bending tools are used to assemble two bends with a small distance between each other in one step. Edgewise Bending tools are used when a bending axis is placed parallel to the tight side of the workpiece.

This type of tool may come equipped with electronic angular measurement component, to ensure a high bending accuracy. Torsion Bending tools are able to rotate the workpiece on a longitudinal axis.

A consumer can alternatively achieve a similar end by using complex assembly groups with standard bends. CNC wire bending machines are a fairly recent development, and they have been designed for high flexibility and a quick set-up. They are able to economically bend both single pieces and small batches with the same level of precision and efficiency as series-produced parts. The final category of Rod Bending tool is the Universal Bending Machine-Modular Construction.

This type of tool consists of a basic machine that is adjustable with little effort and can therefore be applied to a number of bends. The exchange of tools, supported by a simple plug-in system, is quick and easy.

The basic machine is comprised of a CNC-operated side stop, a work bench and software for programming and operating. Because of its modular construction, this machine offers an affordable gateway into bending technology.

After the initial investment, a machine can be customized and extended without any conversion. In other words, the basic machine provides a bending stroke, while the kind of bending is determined by the accompanying tool.

Bending tools are great for a number of industries and markets. Types of construction, among other, to which the Universal Bending Machine lends itself, are metal construction, steel construction, metalwork, machine construction and utility vehicle construction.
