Delve into the intricate world of tube bending with AWC Industries as your guide, let’s unravel its essence and significance. 

AWC Industries’ Craftsmanship

Tube bending stands as a pivotal stage in the fabrication of industrial pipes and tubing, playing a crucial role in construction and material transportation. Bent pipes and tubes primarily serve as structural elements or pathways for substance transfer, catering to diverse industries like aerospace, construction, military, and furniture manufacturing.

At AWC Industries, we specialize in top-tier metal bending, fabrication, and finishing services. Our expertise extends to bending various materials including aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and stainless steel. Equipped with cutting-edge CNC tube bending facilities, we excel in producing high-quality finished products, capable of accommodating metal tubes up to 3 inches in diameter.

During the bending process, the exterior wall of the tube undergoes stretching and thinning at the bend point, while the inner segment thickens and compresses. Precisely managing these physical deformations is crucial for achieving smooth, rounded bends. Thicker-walled tubes bent at wider radii typically exhibit lower degrees of deformation, whereas thinner tubes may present different challenges.
