Tube Bending Seminar

Tube Bending Seminar

Tube bending, for the most part, is a skill that is normally passed from a craftsman to his apprentice. It is often not a skill that tube fitters learn in schools or through textbooks. Many individuals who are considered expert tube benders have learned the craft through years of hands-on experience. It is a skill you learn by doing. Why? Because many craftsmen tell us they have never seen the published instructions that come packaged with a new tube bending tool. So the only way they could learn was through trial and error.

Upon completion of this course, you will:

  • Have a clear understanding of tube preparation, care and handling;
  • Be familiar with the tube cutter, tube deburrer and tube benders;
  • Understand the impact workmanship has on total system performance;
  • Secure a glossary of tube preparation and handling terminology;
  • Have completed exercises that teach techniques for determining the “exact” length of tubing needed to complete a job;
  • Performed exercises that demonstrate time saving fabrication techniques; and
  • Be able to explain the use of expansion loops and offsets.

Who Can Benefit?

Anyone who works with tubing, including but not limited to:

  • Fabricators, contractors, and technicians who assemble systems
  • Engineers and craftsmen that design tubing systems

Each Student Recieves:

  • Several useful reference materials
  • Job-aids that simplify tube fabrication and bending
  • Certification of completion

Estimated length: 2-4 hours
