Metal Tube Bending
The company bends and forms metal tubing, including stainless steel, MP35N, titanium, and several other alloys in diameters from as small 0.004 in. O.D. to as large as 0.25 in. O.D. It has had tube bending capability in its Boulder, CO headquarters facility for some time. It has expanded this capability to its Minnesota division as well as its new biomedical manufacturing plant in Costa Rica. The process has also been automated with several types of quick change tooling for rapid prototyping. Automatic camera inspection offers high quality, fast production times, and full traceability.
