Triad's Ultimate Guide to Custom Aluminum Tube Bending for OEMs

When it comes to custom aluminum tube bending, there’s more to it than meets the eye. The processes and formation of bent tubing are specialized and customized for unique orders, and the collaboration between client and supplier throughout project completion can influence results. However, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Here, we’ve broken down the process of custom aluminum tube bending as well as the many benefits and advantages for OEMs. From cost-efficient methods to superior customer services, custom aluminum tube bending is the right solution for your tubing needs.

Attain Superior Results & Enhanced Product Performance

Every project is unique and requires accurate manufacturing. Aluminum alloys offer exceptional formability and strength, resulting in precise bends for specific measurements. Precision engineering allows for achieving superior results with custom aluminum tube bending without compromising the integrity of the alloy and preventing kinks, cracks, or internal damage. With Triad’s advanced bending techniques, including compression, rotary draw, roll, and ram bending, complex geometries and tight tolerances can be easily attained, leading to superior product performance for OEMs.

High Production Speeds at Low Costs

Because aluminum is a bendable alloy, production speeds are rapid while the costs remain low. Streamlined productions provide advantages of aluminum tube bending, which contribute to overall efficiency. Precision bending eliminates the need for joints and other parts, reducing the material waste created throughout the bending process. Additionally, complex shapes can be created quickly and consistently due to the highly-repeatable nature of tube bending. This leads to decreased costs for OEMs and increased production times, creating quality products for less time and money.

Freedom of Design and Ideation

As stated, aluminum is a highly formable soft metal, which allows it to be formed into tight designs with multiple bends. With many bending forms, from compression to ram, aluminum offers virtually endless design freedom and versatility, expanding project possibilities with custom tube bending. OEMs can achieve unique shapes, contours, and configurations to meet the specific requirements of individual projects. Triad can bend aluminum to any specification without sacrificing the tube's integrity or limiting design requirements, helping OEMs complete projects with ease and precision.

Quality and Consistency for All Bending

The highly repeatable nature of custom aluminum tube bending elevates OEM products by ensuring all products are created with extreme precision to the same measurements. Aluminum, in particular, offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, durability, and ease of bending. These traits aid in producing bent tubing of the highest quality. Precision bends, product longevity and protected integrity are traits desired by OEMs that aluminum tubing provides. Additionally, choosing aluminum for custom tubing can help avoid issues, including poor-quality bends, tube breakage, or product failure. Using advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment, Triad can produce aluminum tubes consistently with extreme accuracy every time.

Superior Partnership and Collaboration

Custom aluminum tube bending allows for collaborative engineering and partnering for success between supplier and OEM. This collaboration helps the supplier understand precisely what the OEM is looking for and enables them to receive the correct products for their unique applications. The risk of project failure decreases significantly with constant communication and involved relationships between supplier and OEM. Additionally, more minds coming together offer different viewpoints and ideas, which can help create the best solutions for individual projects. Triad focuses on forming relationships with OEMs to define, discuss, and create the best custom aluminum bent tubing for specific project requirements. Designs and ideas become reality through collaboration and customization.
