This study is concerned about the development of three-dimensional bending machine for heat exchanger. Recently, three-dimensional bending is required for various heat exchanger. The purpose of this study is design of three-dimensional bending machine by analysis of bending process and structural analysis simulation. The analysis is carried out by FEM simulation using DEFORM and CATIA V5 software. The copper-tube is modeled by shell elements and the machine is modeled by placing proper shell and solid finite elements and fictitious mass properties to represent the real one. The final results of analysis are applied to the design of three-dimensional bending machine and the machine is successfully developed.
