Tube Bending

G & J Steel & Tubing, Inc. can do compression and rotary draw bending, enabling us to provide high quality bent parts at the lowest cost to our customers. Mandrel bending is available for tight CLR (centerline radius) bending requirements. All materials are available including aluminum, carbon steel and stainless steel. Fully automated 3-axis and 6-axis CNC benders produce high volume, low cost and accurate parts. X,Y,Z coordinate Bend programming interfaces with our Tube CMM (coordinate measuring machine) to maintain highest repeatability of production lots and to ensure adherence to your design specifications.

Our bent tubes are used in everything from general purpose handles to specialized medical, dental and surgical tubular parts. We also make return bends built to your specifications.
