Unison Tube has assisted Morse Hydraulics in removing its reliance on external suppliers for the bending of specialist pipe fittings and reducing the volume of bent components it holds in stock.

Morse Hydraulics required a pipe bending machine that would offer accuracy, repeatability and suited to a manufacturing environment specializing in one-off and small batch runs.

“Our goal was two-fold,” said Richie Damian, owner, Morse Hydraulics. “First and foremost, we wanted to carry out pipe bending in house, to enable us to respond even more quickly to the varied needs of our customers. Secondly, as a knock-on benefit, we also wanted to reduce the significant levels of bent pipe fittings that outsourced production meant we were having to hold in stock.”

Morse Hydraulics’ pipe bending requirements prompted Stuart Singleton, vice-president at Unison Tube LLC to recommend one of Unison’s CNC machines.
