Are you making pipe from a flat sheet or bending a pipe ?

Power is the rate of energy flow as the pipe is being bent. How quickly do you want to bend the pipe ?

Is the pipe diameter 16” = 406 mm ?
Can you identify a roll bending machine that is capable of bending relatively thin walled pipe of that diameter without collapse ?
The energy requirement will be determined by bend radius and the angle of bend.
