A continuous 3D tube bending machine has been developed for industrial boiler panel production. The machine consists of a main bender, a sub bender, a side bender, tube feeding rollers and control system that includes data management system. Tube position is controlled by a numerical control system. The bending former can be easily replaced according to the shape of bending form. Reduction of working time and improvement of production capacity from the practice have been achieved by bending a long tube in the machine developed.
