Tube Fabrication Services

(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)

In addition to tube fabrication equipment and automation machinery, at SMT Industries Incorporated we are pleased to offer precision tube fabrication services. We utilize multiple fabrication processes to reach customer specified configurations, including rotary draw bending, push bending, and roll bending. Tubes are formed from aluminum, copper, stainless steel, and steel materials, and we handle cross sections including solid bar, round, square, rectangular, and custom profile shapes and extrusions. Our dedicated tube bending department employs state of the art equipment outfitted with the latest sophisticated technology including an integrated measurement system that auto corrects the bending program during processing.

We can produce minimum outside diameters of 3/32", with outside diameters of up to 6" possible utilizing the rotary draw bending method, up to 2" with push bending, and up to 1-7/8" on solid bar. We have Multi-radius capable machinery. Wall thicknesses range from thin wall to extra heavy wall. We are capable of 1D bending, and welcome customers with critical and demanding tubing requirements.

Tube forming techniques are complimented with a range of secondary services including machining, drilling, MIG and TIG welding, cutting, end forming, soldering, and brazing. A number of premium finishing options are available including powder coating, painting, and plating. Our specialty production shop handles volumes from prototype to low volumes, and we offer full component assembly. For more details about our tube fabrication services, or our other available capabilities, please see the table below or contact us directly.
