Product range

OMP - Tectubi Raccordi Bending Division produces large radius bends and clad bends. Both hot and cold bending processes are used for: carbon and alloy steel for moderate and elevated temperatures; high yield steel; carbon and alloy steel for low temperature service; stainless steel; austenitic/ferritic stainless steel; nickel alloy; titanium alloy and aluminium alloy.

The cold bending method, as the result of a registered industrial patent used exclusively by the company, delivers an identical structure to that of the original tube, so the product does not need further heat treatment when the mechanical characteristics comply.

The bends are destined mostly for the oil & gas pipeline and power sectors, and can also be used for civil engineering works.

Hot bending

Clad induction bending

Cold bending

The company has recently increased its capacity with the purchase of a new induction bending machine, Schäfer SRBMI 1400. This machine enables the production of bends in diameter from 2” to 56”, bending radius from 250 mm to 10,000 mm and thickness from 7 mm to 100 mm.

The machines, electronically interfaced, are provided with a control system which enables them to adapt to variations in load, while keeping control over the temperature, reducing heat losses to a minimum. The material properties are retained accordingly, even after the bending and heat treatment process, in accordance with applicable specifications.

Clad induction bending

OMP - Tectubi Raccordi Bending Division manufactures a wide range of clad induction bends for applications under the most demanding conditions and services. All bends with R/D<4 are offered as hot induction bends, whereas for R/D≥4, Tectubi Raccordi offers cold formed bends, as a valuable alternative to hot ones.
