Materials Used: All metals for low-pressure applications.
Machines/Processes Used: Mandrel bending and roll-form bending. Bend “1D” (tight radius). Dual tube bending (tube within a tube while maintaining flow).
Minimums/Maximums: Single-piece to moderate production (1000/month)
Sizes: 6″ outside diameter 11 gage tube or 4″ schedule 160 pipe
Possible Applications: All low-pressure applications where casting is too heavy or costly. Product development, mass-customization in engine upfits, specialty vehicles, marine and yacht, engine exhaust, generators, architectural or interior design, display projects, cleaning equipment from car washes to commercial dishwashers.
Stainless Steel Tubes: 316 stainless, 304 stainless is most common. 400 series not stocked, but can be ordered with tube bending service
