Someone not familiar with the tube bending process is unable to imagine the complexity of maintaining the bending tool sets and using them to meet the production department’s requirements. This complexity is further multiplied when using different tube bending machines with different characteristics and needing sets to be tooled in time, whether the production batch is small or large.

Manufacturers are continually looking for ways to eliminate waste in their manufacturing process and save cost. Tube fabricators are no different. This becomes even more evident when multiple tubes are required to build an assembly.
One of the most cumbersome challenges faced by tube fabricators is the joining of tube components. Difficulties are often encountered with fit-up, fixturing and assembly.
This is especially true when secondary process operations, such coping and mitering, are required after the bending process.
