Tube Bending Services

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

The Tube Bending Experts

Everything else being equal, the easiest HSS (hollow structural sections) tube to bend would be round tubing because its uniform shape fits tightly and neatly into well-designed tooling. Square and rectangular tube bending is more difficult,but they can be curved to tight radii without distortion, even with a thin wall.

In general, tube bending is easier with tubes that have thicker rather than thinner walls. The most difficult type of tube bending is creating rectangular sections with thin walls bent the “easy way” (y-y axis). Ironically, “hard way” tubes (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 can provide aluminum tube bending, carbon steel tube bending, stainless steel tube bending, and more.

Curved metal tubes take on a number of forms: seamless (e.g. A106), DOM (drawn over mandrel), and ERW (electrical resistance welding, e.g. A500 B/C).

Tube Bending Value-Added Services

Chicago Metal Rolled Products also provide 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 bending process. 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 for tank supports.
  • Bent round aluminum tube is often used in displays and exhibits. 
  • Tube bending is also becoming increasingly popular for the construction in roof trusses, canopies, balconies, and many other applications.

  • "Without CMRP able to roll these channels to my specifications, there was no way this beautiful round antenna would have ever worked.
