Copper is a lightweight material that offers excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and tolerates extreme temperatures. These properties, along with its excellent corrosion resistance, makes copper tubing a preferred choice for residential and commercial plumbing applications. Custom copper tubing is also used to manufacture refrigeration and supply lines, and cooling components for lasers and laboratory testing equipment. Finished tubing is joined together using threads, flared ends, compression fittings, and soldering.
The excellent formability of copper makes it easy to bend, though caution must be taken to prevent crushing during the bending process. Copper tube bending is accomplished using different equipment and methods such as rotary draw bending, roll bending, mandrel bending, and ram bending. Each process is unique and provides different benefits, and the company performing the copper tube forming will determine which is best for your specific project.

Custom Copper Tubing Grades
Our standard copper tubing is available in many grades including, 122 refrigerator and air conditioning grade tubing, and as specified through customer request. Contact us to discuss your material requirements.
Custom Copper Tube Bending for All Industries & Applications
With our custom copper tube bending and copper tube fabrication capabilities, we can meet the needs of a wide range of applications and industries that use bent copper tube. We work with OEMs across a broad range of industries and provide specialized secondary operations including welding, flaring, and post-bend threading you can’t find elsewhere.
Air Conditioning/HVAC Copper Tube Bending
Copper’s strength and natural corrosion resistance make it an excellent material for long lasting, low maintenance components. This makes custom copper tubing ideal for plumbing, heating, cooling, and other mechanical systems. We offer copper tube bending in any shape and size you need, whether it’s a straight tube with a single bend for a plumbing line or coiled tubing for a cooling and heating unit.
Custom Copper Tubing for OEM Equipment
In cooling system applications, water runs through bent copper tubing to reduce and regulate internal temperature. Copper tubing components are used in the cooling systems of many types of equipment and machinery including laboratory equipment, laser systems, and various other heating, cooling and refrigeration applications.
Custom Copper Tubes for Water Service & Distribution
Copper piping/tubing systems deliver clean, safe water—both hot and cold—for drinking and other potable and non-potable uses. Examples of projects we have completed for this industry include coils for water heating and cooling applications, and custom copper tubes for refrigeration and water supply lines.
Custom Copper Tubing for Fuel Gas Distribution
Small yet strong bent copper tube is a cost-effective solution for the delivery of natural and LP gas in various applications including furnaces, gas fireplaces, and more.
