For tube bending of stainless steel and titanium material exhaust pipes, AMPCO®18, AMPCO®18.23, AMPCO®21, AMPCO®22 and AMPCO®M4 are used in great benefits for product quality and long-life of the production tooling.

Advantages of AMPCO®21 and AMPCO®22 mandrels and balls:

  • Extended life
  • No hardening or expensive coatings on the mandrel required
  • No galling.

Advantages of AMPCO®18, AMPCO®18.23 and AMPCO®M4 wiper dies:

  • Extended life (20 times longer with AMPCO®M4)
