A method or process of bending which employs an induction heating coil to create a narrow, circumferential, heated band around the material to be bent. When the appropriate temperature is reached, the material is pushed forward through the coil at a consistent speed and temperature while a bending moment is applied. After the material passes through the coil, it may be cooled (quenched) by forced air or water spray, or it may be allowed to cool naturally at ambient temperatures.
