As with square tube bending, the modification and manipulation of rectangular tubes poses a number of unique challenges, particularly if the application demands that the tubes or hollow structural sections be bent along the x-x- axis.
At Tube-Tec Bending, we take great pride in being equal to even the most difficult tube bending tasks. Guided by decades of experience and informed by thorough documentation processes, we create reliable, project-specific strategies that generate predictable results for our industry partners. Take a look our expert metal bending process here, from initial design & consultation through delivery.
Bending Processes for Custom Rectangular Tubing
Three main techniques are used for our rectangular tube bending services, depending on the nature of the tubing and the requirements for the finished product. These techniques include:
- Bending along the x-x- axis. Informally known as the "hard way," this technique requires the application of higher levels of pressure.
- Bending along the y-y axis. Also called the "easy way," bending along the y-y axis still requires careful attention, since it can result in the concaving of the section's internal diameter.
- Rolling the tube off-axis. This advanced method can be used when neither x-x axis or y-y axis bending is likely to yield the desired result.
In addition to these primary techniques, we have also developed a number of unique proprietary processes that aren't available through other metal bending and rolling facilities. No matter what your custom rectangular tube bending project demands, our technicians have the skills, experience and innovative spirit needed to realize ideal results, time and time again.
