At Detroit Tube Products, we are one of the best small tubing benders in the Detroit area. For gas lines or water lines, sometimes you need a smaller diameter tubing bent at certain angles. In addition, these smaller tubes require a more precise and experienced bender. With decades of experience, Detroit Tube Products can bend any smaller tube to the exact bend you need. We offer a wide variety of diameters of tubes that we can bend.
Our diameters can be as small as 0.750″ and go up from there. We can provide compression or mandrel bends and shape the tube to your exact specifications. We have clients in all types of industries. Furthermore, we provide tube bending services for diesel engines, radiators, generators, energy systems, and much more. Of course, there are many fields that a small tube is used for.
When it comes to bending smaller steel tubes, there are different types of bends you can perform. The first is a mandrel bend. This process uses a steel rod inserted into the tube during bending. Also, this method will provide an excellent bend without wrinkling or breaking. Compression bending is not recommended for smaller tubes. If you use compression bending on a smaller tube you could cause it to buckle or break.
Another method is the rotary draw method. This process uses mandrels and dies inside the tubing. Also, this process allows for a better tighter bend even with smaller tubing. Stainless steel is a great choice for your tubing. The corrosion resistance and sturdy nature of the steel make it exceptional for many industries. Of course, stainless steel is not the only type of metal we can bend. We can metals such as aluminum, copper, carbon, and many other materials.
Also, we can bend into all types of angles such as elbows, u-bends, and a tee. The elbow bend is usually a 45 or 90-degree bend or somewhere near those degrees. A U Bend, usually used for the flow of coolant, is as it sounds a steel tube bent into a U shape. A U-Turn is usually a 180-degree bend or close to that. The tee bend is as it sounds, there is a straight tube with another intersecting forming the T shape.
