TUBE FORMING & BENDING
Tube Forming & Bending
90% of the exhaust systems fabricated by GoodFabs start with a piece of flat metal sheet rather than ready-made tube. As Inconel, titanium and 321 stainless tube is not available at short notice, or in small quantities, it is more practical to form and bend sheet metal from scratch. We stock 304 stainless steel and aluminium tube in various diameters and wall thicknesses.
Having worked with Formula 1 design engineers for over 30 years, GoodFabs has built up a large supply of mandrel bend tooling to meet their requirements for multiple diameters, wall thicknesses and centre lines.
GoodFabs owns a large selection of mandrel bend tooling
Although most of our tube forming, bending and pressing is for our own race exhaust programmes, we do make custom made tube, bends and pressings for engine builders, motorsport teams and custom exhaust fabricators, including our competitors.
