Tube Bending

Our inventory of bend tooling and equipment at Kooks is among the largest in the country. We bend a variety of steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and alloy tubes from 1" to 4" in outer diameter.
The variety of equipment available on the shop floor allows us to manufacture components and assemblies in a range of production volumes. CNC bending equipment can accommodate multiple radii for extremely efficient bending of high-volume orders. We specialize in the precision bending of thin wall tubing, tight radii and close tangent bends. In-house fixturing and specialized clamps provide the ability to perform multiple bends in close proximity to one another, allowing us to create a myriad of geometries.
Many forming and fabrications services are available to complement our tube bending capabilities. These services include a variety of end forming capabilities, drilling, machining, brazing, and welding. All work is done to applicable industries standards including Mil-Spec, AMS, ASTM, and ASME requirements, as specified. In addition to in-house inspection and quality control services, a variety of outside services can be arranged as needed. Outside inspection services are performed by partner facilities that carry the necessary government, Nadcap, and other certifications required by the industries we serve.

 

Forming & Fabricating Services

At Kooks we have been providing tube bending as well as forming and fabrication of bent tube assemblies, for over 50 years. As a leading provider of parts and assemblies for the aviation and transportation industries, we have developed services that add value to the manufacturing process.
Fabrication abilities include tube bending, end forming, boring, grinding, brazing, and welding of a variety of materials. Tube ends can be flared, flattened, swaged, beaded, or formed with a Victaulic groove. Properly forming the ends of the tube is an essential part to ensuring optimal performance of the assembly. We are capable of fabricating assemblies from a variety of standard metals including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and brass.
Inspection and testing capabilities include CMM equipment. If additional finishing and fabrication work is needed, trusted outside sources can be contracted, further simplifying customers’ supply chain.
In developing welding and brazing services for the automotive industry, at Kooks Industries, Inc., we put a focus on precision and versatility. We offer a wide variety of welding services including: gas tungsten, gas metal, as well as resistance spot welding. Torch brazing is performed in-house while both standard and vacuum brazing are available through an outside partner. For high-volume weldments, 6-axis robotic MIG welding is available.
Various non-destructive testing and inspection can be performed in-house and by third party certified weld inspectors, according to applicable industry standards.

 

Engineering Capabilities

We have complete CAD services available for tooling, fixturing, Industrial, and automotive exhaust design.

Muliple Suites of CAD software including:

Rhinoceros CAD: Interfaces with our CMM arm for measuring and surface design.

Solid Edge CAD: Mechanical Design Software for complex parts, assemblies, and sheetmetal design.

Solidworks CAD: Mechanical Design Software for parts and assemblies.

TeZetCAD, Tubing Manipulation Software: Tezet allows us maximum flexibility in the design of any tube and tube assembly and generates all tube data for downloading to the CNC mandrel drawn tube benders in our facility. We can also import your tube designs to extract the data from your files for tube bending at our facility.

We can translate most CAD formats including but not limited to:
