Tube Bend

Subcontract Mandrel Tube Bending

Swanglen Metals Products most recent investment in CNC mandrel tube bending is the SOCO SB-63 x 4A-2S a full CNC tube bending machine, which ensures greater accuracy than ever before.

This machine utilises both multiple-stroke and positive gripping feeding methods to optimise production efficiency. The machine is designed with a direct transmission bending system which results in an efficient and accurate production process.

The SB-63 x 4A-2S also benefits from being a two-stack machine which gives us the ability to produce components with two different centre line radiuses for more complex components.

With over 15 years’ experience, our skilled team of tube technicians can bring your designs from technical drawings to first-off prototyping, through to full volume production.

Swanglen Metal Products, as subcontract metal fabricators, has many years of experience working with designers from a multitude of sectors from within the UK and Europe, in many different types of tube diameter and tube materials.

We can offer full prototyping services through to small batch and high volume production.
