Mandrel Bending Solutions grew from a local custom exhaust shop in Pasadena, Maryland when we Realized the limitations of our Huth crush bender and decided to offer on-site, custom mandrel bending services to our performance oriented customers. The addition of our 3 mandrel tubing benders along with our tubing digitizer has made us the only exhaust shop in Maryland and one of a select few in the United States to offer custom mandrel bending. The Mandrel Benders are configured with tooling for 2, 2¼", 2½", 3'' and 4" alumminized steel and stainless steel exhaust tubing. The center line radius on these bends are 1.5 times the outside diameter of the tube. We also have tooling for 1 5/8'' and 1 ¾'' DOM and Chrome Moly tubing for the fabrication of roll bars. The center line radius of these are 6''.More tooling will be added in the future.
Our tubbing digitizer uses a fixed base and arm to plot a digital image of the bends, angles and radii of exhaust pipes. This can be done while the pipe is either on or off the vehicle. This digital plot can be used by the bender to duplicate the part in question or be used for mass production. The digitizer and its software also translate bends and radii from one diameter pipe to another, introducing digital accuracy to a process that has always involved "eye-balling" and guesswork and ensuring a better fit to the vehicle.Combining quality machinery and tooling with state-of-the-art digital technology and years of custom exhaust experience enables us to bring a unique service and quality products to our customers.
