Tube Bending Services

Chicago Metal Rolled Products (CMRP) is one of America’s leading tube bending companies, with more than a century of experience. We provide custom tube bending services for round, square, and rectangular tubing in all sizes and materials.  

The Tube Bending Experts

All else being equal, round tubing is the easiest HSS (hollow structural sections) tube to bend. This is thanks to uniform shape, which fits tightly and neatly into well-designed tooling. Square and rectangular tube bending is more difficult, but with CMRP’s experience and expertise, these HSS tubes can be successfully curved to tight radii without distortion, even with thin wall tube.

In general, tube bending is easier with tubes that have thicker walls. Perhaps the most difficult part of tube bending is creating rectangular sections with thin wall tubes bent the “easy way” (on the y-y axis). Ironically, “hard way” tubes (bent on the x-x axis) are actually easier to bend than easy way tubes.

Chicago Metal Rolled Products has the technology to bend even the most difficult materials without distortion, with minimum pick-up to the tightest radii with the thinnest walls. We provide aluminum tube bending, carbon steel tube bending, stainless steel tube bending, and more, to meet your material needs.

Curved metal tubes take on a number of forms, including seamless (e.g. A106), DOM (drawn over mandrel), and ERW (electrical resistance welding, e.g. A500 B/C). CMRP can provide custom curved metal tube in any form your application requires.

Tube Bending Value-Added Services

To complement our tube bending services and give our customers more complete products, Chicago Metal Rolled Products provides ancillary services including, but not limited to:

  • Saw cutting
  • Mitering
  • Beveling
  • Welding
  • Drilling
  • Grinding 

In some cases, special cut outs or holes can be added before the bending process; in other cases, these features must be added after the tube has been bent. A combination of methods is sometimes required—whatever your project requires, CMRP has the skilled craftsmen and the advanced equipment needed to perform fabrication beyond tube bending.

Applications for Bent Tubes

Products made via tube bending are used in just about every industry.

  • Agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers use these sections for tongue tubes, roll-over protection (ROPS), framing, discharge chutes, and tank supports.
  • Bent round aluminum tube is often used in signs, displays, and exhibits. 
  • Tube bending is also becoming increasingly popular for the construction of roof trusses, canopies, balconies, and other architectural applications.
