Tube bending & manipulation is a method that bends and machines tubes and also change the tube's width.
Tube bending and manipulation can be divided into two parts; the bending and the manipulation. The bending is usually carried out in a pipe and tube bending machine, which is a common machine tool in workshops that specialize in tubes. Those machines are often capable of some machining too. Manipulation means that the size of the tube changes, the width of the tube can either increase or decrease. This can be achieved in a press with special tools or in a tube forming machine. A common reason to manipulate tubes is to join tubes of the same size.
Tube manipulation is a process that is carried out in workshops that specialize in tube work.
Post project to suppliers with Tube Bending & Manipulation capabilities
This manufacturer of British sports cars seeks a supplier with the capabilities to produce the attached bulkhead tube and chassis rail. Suppliers are asked to quote for 25 off of each item, which require tube laser cutting and bending. The buyer's spend on subcontract fabrication processes exceeds £150,000 per year and therefore, the chosen supplier will be given the opportunity to develop an ongoing relationship and assist within further projects moving forward.
This client seeks assistance from a supplier who is able to offer assistance within the manufacture of the attached seat frame. This design is to be produced from 6005A-T6 aluminium alloy and is destined for end use within the aerospace industry. Quality is paramount; suppliers who are able to offer competitive pricing, whilst maintaining a high standard of manufacture, will be seen favourably.
This company spends over £200,000 on assorted fabrication work each year and has an immediate order to place for 46 off each offside and nearside worklight protectors, as per the attached drawings. Please note only the O/S drawing has been made available, however the N/S version is a direct mirror image. Not only is this company looking for this work to be completed, but they are also looking for a long-standing relationship with the chosen supplier. This particular enquiry is a one-off requirement but there will also be repeatable, similar work going forward, to keep up with demand from their own clients. A high-quality finish is sought and pricing is also very important.
This online education and healthcare facilities retailer currently has the attached items manufactured overseas and would like to hear from UK suppliers capable of assisting them with ongoing production moving forward. There is an immediate order to place for these parts which will be repeated in similar, or increasing production quantities. The units are required at the supplier's earliest convenience and therefore, quotes from those who can offer a short lead time will be viewed favourably. The order frequency does vary throughout the year, but on average, these quantities are repeated on a monthly basis.
This manufacturer of rubber and bicycle components, who outsources approximately £50,000 worth of fabrication a year, has a new design for their grappling equipment. Subsequently, they would like to hear from suppliers capable of assisting them with both the immediate prototyping order and the ongoing production requirements. This makes the project ideal for suppliers who are looking to fill both short and long-term capacity, whilst forming a relationship with a new buyer.
This Qimtek member currently has a requirement for the attached handle to be produced from mild steel tube. They require quotes for 50, 100 and 200 off of this part, which could develop into an ongoing requirement moving forward. There is an immediate order to place with the successful supplier, meaning that this project will be a great fit with those who have immediate capacity to fill.
Suppliers with in-house tube bending capabilities are asked to quote for a selection of mild steel raising aid components. Destined for end use within the medical industry, the parts in question are to be quoted in batches of 200 off of each. The company behind this enquiry spends over £100,000 every year in the subcontract fabrication and machining realms, meaning that there is plenty of scope for the successful Qimtek member to develop the relationship further.
This client seeks a supplier with the in-house capabilities to produce the attached tube components. The work incorporates bending of mild steel tube in a wide variety of angles. This is but a small example of multiple requirements that the client subcontracts on a regular basis - therefore, this project may be of particular interest to those who are looking to supplement their long-term customer portfolio.
This buyer, a budding designer and manufacturer of furniture, seeks the assistance of a supplier who is able to offer production of the attached chair frame and associated components. This product is a new design for which there is no current supplier. The client is open to supplier input surrounding the design and material specification, in order to reduce production costs. This project involves aspects of tube bending, cutting, welding and a small amount of machining. There is an immediate order to place for 6 off complete units, with further batches of 50/100 off to follow, making this an excellent opportunity for those looking to build an ongoing relationship with a growing company.
This manufacturer of British sports cars seeks a supplier with the capabilities to produce the attached "wing frame tube". The successful supplier is required to quote for 25 off and 50 off of these items which require tube laser cutting and bending. The buyer's spend on subcontract fabrication exceeds £150,000 per year and therefore, the chosen supplier will be given the opportunity to develop an ongoing relationship and assist within further projects moving forward.
