Take your aerospace project to new heights with high-quality metal bending from Tube-Tec Bending, an industry-leading metal beam, bar, tube, and pipe bending service provider. Our area of expertise is conventional and custom shapes for critical applications

The Criticality of Quality Metal Bending

Aerospace applications utilize a range of strong but lightweight exotic materials that must be bent at unique angles to produce efficient, capable, and competitive aerospace components and assemblies. Most metals, however, don’t bend effortlessly and are hard to manufacture to precise tolerances. 

The following defects are typical results of substandard metal bending processes. 

  • Rippling
  • Wrinkling
  • Cracking
  • Flattening
  • Splitting
  • Wall thining
  • Buckling
  • Galling
  • Scoring
  • Dragging

Incorporating poorly bent metals in your aerospace application has risks. Any nonconformity negatively impacts humans and the environment. Additionally, failures can result in production downtime, lost revenues, and damaged company perception. 

Your Metal Bending Solutions Provider

Tube-Tec Bending is a premier provider of precision metal bending services for the aerospace industry and its supply chain partners. When you need metal bent properly, and it must be done rapidly, there’s nobody better than us.

 With decades of metal-bending experience, we offer clients in need of an aerospace project solution with high-quality metal products bent to precise tolerances on time and at a competitive price. Here’s our range of aerospace tube bending services:

  • Pipe bending
  • Angle bending
  • Bar bending
  • Beam bending
  • Tube bending
  • Channel bending
  • Structural bending
  • Helical bending
  • Compound bending
  • Offset bending

The bent metal bars, beams, casing, and piping found in aerospace applications often must bear weight or provide structural stability while withstanding extreme temperatures and corrosive environments. Examples include:

  • Frames
  • Seats
  • Lighting
  • Tanks and vessels
  • Fasteners
  • Tubing
  • Fittings
  • Couplings

Tube-Tec Bending utilizes industry-leading machines that generate bends with pinpoint accuracy and paramount quality. This reduces waste while increasing production throughput, which saves you money and time.

Your Metal Bending Source

Metal bending is often described as a challenging process riddled with trial and error. If you know what you’re doing, as we at Tube-Tec Bending do, then it’s all science. Effective metal bending begins with materials being shaped.

Our team of experts knows the characteristics of materials and the optimum way to bend them. While we bend just about any metal type, materials we work with regularly include: 

If you already have an application but aren’t sure which material type is best, Tube-Tec Bending can identify an innovative, high-quality solution. We improve the performance, longevity, and safety of your aerospace application.
