35 years of mandrel bend tooling!
Updated: Apr 15, 2020
We've been told by our US-based tooling supplier that we probably have the largest amount of bend tooling outside the aerospace industry when it comes to mandrel bending exotic metal tube with a diameter between 1 and 3.5 inches and wall thicknesses from 0.5 - 1.5mm.
For some diameters we have half a dozen mandrels allowing us to precision bend multiple wall thicknesses. When it comes to inconel 605, inconel 718, titanium (various grades) and SS 321 tube there isn't much ready made tube available for our bend tooling, so we form it ourselves from sheet. We've been doing this for F1 teams for over 35 years and their demands change every season. As a consequence we end up with more and more tooling, which is then available for everyone to use.
So even if it's 304 stainless or aluminium that you are after download our tooling chart. You can even visit our online shop and get a quote for the materials and wall thicknesses that we tend to stock in sheet form.
Alternatively call us on +44 1844 202850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you an A3 version to mount on the workshop wall!
