Pneuform was founded in the mid-1960s, concentrating its efforts on the design, development and manufacture of pneumatic and hydraulic tube and wire bending machines. Pneuform produce wire bending machines in both 2- and 3-axis models that cover a range of wires from 2 mm (0.08″) to 16 mm (0.63”). Pneuform also produces a range of tube machines that have been developed for specific industries. The 2-axis bending machine will produce serpentines, coils and spirals with either a static flat table for smaller parts or with an integrated 3-axis table to support large parts. The 3-axis bending machine provides the versatility to produce a variety of shapes.
