Tube Forming Of All Kinds

Minimums/Maximums: Flares from 0 degrees to 90, expanded ends to beyond what you may have thought could be done — ask us!

Possible Applications: Formed tubes are often a low-weight solution in tight spaces and low-volume applications. Eliminate welds and potential leaks with a one-piece design– you’ll have a neat, attractive part. If you are looking for an experienced company that can handle tube forming and shaping of all kinds, then Detroit Tube Products is here for you. We can help you through the whole process of designing your new part.

When it comes to tube end forming we can offer reduction tube end forming, beaded, flare, or expansion.  The reduction is just how it sounds. We reduce the diameter using dies and tapered rings.  The beaded forming is adding beads at the end to improve the tube to hold on a hose.  Also, the expansion end is enlarging the end of the tube so other tubes can fit inside.

Our products are used in a variety of industries such as diesel engines, mining equipment, food service equipment, radiators, fire suppression, car wash systems, and many more! Along with forming, we also offer tube bending services and we can build assemblies. Our tube forming and shaping have been used in a multitude of projects. From custom car exhausts to complex engines, our quality finished products can help you.

From flange ends to flaring, we can provide you with exactly what you are looking for. Also, we service companies all over the Metro Detroit Area and have for decades. With decades of experience and excellent customer service, Detroit Tube Products is the first choice when it comes to tube forming and shaping.
