What Is Induction Bending

Weldless pipespools, also called an Induction Pipe Bending spools have cast an indelible impact on the piping system in the industries.

Weldless pipes spools ensure smooth functioning and reduce risk of leakage. Using the latest induction bending technology, we fabricate the spools without welding the Elbows. Industries that find such pipe bending useful particularly include power stations, sugar plants, oil refineries, etc.

With weldless pipespools, the industries are experiencing reduced pipeline turbulence, enhanced system integrity, and smoother operations. These joint-less pipe spools also contribute to the reduction in the lifetime costs and fabrication time of the pipelines.

Understanding The Process Of Induction Bending

Induction bending involves the application of heat at a particular portion of a pipe where it needs to bend. The controlled temperature condition ensures that the pipe does not get deformed. Moreover, this bending process excludes the risks of leakages that welded joints pose.

Easy to install and maintain, these pipes have changed the way the big industries once worked. No-joint pipelines allow the liquid materials to flow without experiencing much friction. Consequently, the speed of flow increases and the productivity of the industries using these pipes goes up. Induction bending pipelines are indeed the latest solution for all industries using pipeline channels.

Following are some reasons industries should consider upgrading their pipeline systems to weldless pipes.

Why Should You Use Induction Bending Method?

There are several reasons why you should consider using induction bending. The most prominent ones among them are:

  • Decreased Fabrication Cost: You’ll need to spend 3 to 30% less for NDE, fabrication, and material, depending on the number of welds you are eliminating through bending operations.
  • Reduction in Fabrication Time: The process will not only allow you to initiate fabrication promptly but will also reduce the time required for completing the process.
  • Fabrication Will Start Instantly: The availability of suitable material is a crucial factor in deciding the fate of a fabrication project and the resulting expenses. According to experts, elbows are the most common fittings triggering delays in fabrication with isometrics.

Moreover, they also involve additional expenses as such fabrication projects often require double handling. If you opt for the weld-less process, bending will start almost immediately after you receive the pipes. This is possible, as this bending method will not require you to depend on elbows.

  • Reduction in Requirement for Material Management: As the need for elbows will reduce, the expenses related to bidding, requisitioning/indenting, ordering, and delivery will be eliminated. This will reduce the costs of material management significantly.
  • Fabrication Will Finish Fast: If you go for the conventional fabrication, you will have to wait for 3 to 6 weeks for the process to be complete. The duration will vary depending on factors like wall thickness, diameter, and complexity. Induction bending will reduce the fabrication time to 1 to 2 weeks. You will need a week or two more if there’s any further need for welding.


In short, induction bending technology has improved pipeline systems considerably. With no junction points attached, the pipelines look seamless and work without glitches. Replacing the existing pipeline system with a weldless pipe spool can ensure higher productivity and functional efficiency.
