This automated tube bending machine was developed to test various type and size tubing to test the tube material fatigue endurance limits.

The coil tube has been used for mineral exploration in recent years and in order to find the most suitable alloy that is light in weight, and can be coiled and recoiled time and again for use at different locations without early material fatigue, it was necessary to develop this technology to be used for identification of the most suitable tube material.

Variant types of such machine can be constructed and used for other research applications.
