Our Spectrum of Expertise 

Over the years, AWC Industries has formed partnerships with a diverse range of sectors, showcasing our adaptability and comprehensive skill set. Our collaborations span across:

  • Construction: Serving the backbone of urban growth, we’ve worked closely with construction entities, understanding the structural integrity and specifications essential for building frameworks.
  • Aerospace: With the aerospace industry’s stringent standards and precision requirements, we’ve undertaken projects that require meticulous attention to detail, ensuring every component meets safety and performance benchmarks.
  • Household: Recognizing the aesthetic and functional needs of everyday products, we’ve been a part of creating components for a myriad of household items. From furniture frames to kitchen gadgets, our expertise ensures durability and design coalesce seamlessly.
  • Food and Beverage: In an industry where hygiene and safety are paramount, we’ve ensured that our tube bending and fabrication processes align with the standards essential for food processing, storage, and dispensation.

As we’ve navigated through these sectors, our journey has been enriched by diverse challenges. It begins at the ideation phase, where we work hand-in-hand with our clients to prototype designs that encapsulate their vision while maintaining functionality. As the process advances, our focus shifts to optimizing workflows, ensuring that the production phase is streamlined, efficient, and timely.

Our Techniques 

At AWC Industries, we’re not just using machinery; we’re mastering it. Our commitment to precision and excellence has led us to invest in and harness a series of specialized equipment, each contributing to the quality of our finished goods:

  • Mandrel Tube Benders: This machinery ensures smooth and consistent bends in tubes, minimizing deformations and maintaining the tube’s inner profile. It’s the perfect tool when precision and aesthetics are of utmost importance.
  • Press Tube Benders: Ideal for heavier gauge tubing, press tube benders apply force uniformly, ensuring the bends are sharp and accurate without compromising the tube’s strength.
  • Draw Tube Benders: With this tool, tubes are clamped in place and drawn around a die, ensuring smooth, consistent, and long-radius bends — essential for certain applications where gentle curves are required.
  • Vaill Tube End Formers: End-forming is just as critical as bending, and with our Vaill end formers, we can craft tube ends tailored for specific functions, whether that’s coupling, sealing, or any other specialized need.
  • Tauring 3 Ring Tube Rollers: This equipment allows for large-radius curves and arches, especially useful in architectural or design-focused applications.

Our facility, equipped with state-of-the-art CNC machinery, comfortably processes tubes with diameters up to 3 inches. This ensures that, regardless of the tube’s size, we can work with precision and maintain the same level of quality across all dimensions. Furthermore, we recognize that aesthetics are as important as function. Hence, we offer a range of finishes to enhance the visual appeal and durability of our products. This includes chrome and zinc plating, and powder coating
