About Bend Machine Information
Bend machine information is the specifications required by the bending machine to bend a pipe. A Bend Machine report generates a table of information containing the bend number, bend point, bend angle, bend radius, and bend twist angle. The information is calculated based on the bends in the pipe starting from the specified pipe end.
Bend Machine information is available for all pipelines with bends and for pipelines with a combination of bends and miter cuts.
For a Bend Machine report:
The pipeline must have one or more bends.
The segments in a selected pipeline should have a minimum angle of 1.5°.
For the twist angle information to appear in the Bend Machine report, the pipeline must have two or more bends.
