Steel Alloy Bend Die for Steel Pipe Industry
Steel Alloy Bend Die for Steel Pipe Industry

As a full service provider of precision machined components, Niagara Precision provides customers with a single source solution to their custom manufacturing needs. We were recently contracted by a manufacturer of boilers to fabricate a die that would be used to bend steel boiler tubes. The customer supplied us with specifications, which we used to engineer the final design. Composed of 4340 steel, the finished die featured dimensions 6" in length, height, and thickness, with machined tolerances of ±.001", in addition, it also required a polished finish. After machining and dimensional inspections, the die was then heat treated with a nitriding process, before receiving a surface coating. Although this project is outside of our normal scope of work, we were still able to complete the entire job is just 8 weeks. For more information see the table below or contact us directly.
