Tube Bending and Fabrication

With over 50 years of experience in tube bending and fabrication, Bassett Industries, Inc. is a true turnkey tubular part manufacturer. We take on a wide variety of precision tube fabrication processes from pre-cutting of raw materials to final production of finished, fabricated tubular components.

Bassett Industries delivers quality ready-to-assemble tubular components, weldments and assemblies to industries including but certainly not limited to the Appliance, Automotive, Computer, Construction, Distribution, Electronic, Fabrication, Furniture, Hardware, Health and Fitness, Heating and AC, Heavy Equipment, Lawn and Garden, Material Handling, Petroleum and Mining, and Refrigeration industries.

The Bassett tube bending process provides standard bend radii from tight mandrel bends to large, sweeping roll bends. We also offer bending of pre-coated and painted parts.

We fabricate metal tubes of length up to 27 feet. Mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum are among the materials we use to produce these tubular components.

Bassett Industries, Inc. is equipped with state-of-the-art CNC tube benders with touch screen controls, which specifically produce formed tubes. We use our existing tooling systems for bending and fabricating that not only facilitate faster part turnaround but also reduce tooling expenses.

Moreover, we also have a dedicated customer support team to help you out with queries regarding in-house bend-die information.

Designing Assistance

Some basic ideas that can help in reducing the overall cost of a part by designing the part to be manufacturing friendly are provided below. For a more in depth analysis send us your drawings, or call one of our engineers.

Tube Bending Considerations:
CLR- Center Line Radius: Typical CLR is 3x the OD of the tube without mandrels. It is possible to bend on a 1 or 2xD bend, but not without more complex tooling. Tooling costs also increase when comparing a plug mandrel to 3-ball mandrel & wiper die. The tighter the radius, the more tooling required and the more expensive the part.
  • Use the same CLR for all bends unless prohibited by design restraints.


Straight between bends: Allow 3x the OD of straight for clamping between bends and from the edge of the tube. This reduces the overall cost of part by reducing additional trim operations and increasing the bend rate. Bends closer than 3xD require compound tooling increasing tooling cost and reducing bend rates
