CNC Mandrel Tube Bending

At Bauer, our core competency lies in performing different types of tube bending operations, including mandrel, non-mandrel, crush, draw, and multi-radius bending. We bend rounds, ovals, squares, rectangles, or any other complex/special shape on small and large tubes. With 150-ton press brakes, we can handle material thicknesses up to 7 gauge. We work on all materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and brass.

We specialize in creating 1D mandrel bends at bend angles ranging from 0º to 180º. On our Eaton Leonard & STAR CNC tube benders, calendering or roll bending operations can be carried out as well. This CNC rotary tube bender features a three-position headshifter for multi-radius, multi-diameter, ...

Sheet Metal & Tube Fabrication

From 32-ton punch presses to 150-ton hydraulic presses, a variety of equipment is used to draw, pierce, form, and flatten parts. With live tooling options, our large 60" x 30" x 24" press brakes, allow us to perform multiple operations simultaneously on parts with thicknesses up to 7 gauge.

We specialize in ID/OD and RAM types of tube forming. Operations such as reducing, expanding, and swaging can be performed to form tube ends. End forming and hi-speed tube perforation of tubes with ODs up to 3" can be handled by us. Our extensive experience in beading, roll forming, and flaring of copper tubes allows us to meet diverse customer requirements.

TIG and MIG Robotic Welding

Our robotic welding systems, integrated with head and tailstock, offer high quality welding within short turnarounds. We have five experienced onsite programmers to assist us in programming robots for diverse operations. In addition, our plant is equipped with a bulk gas system to minimize welder down time.

We weld all metals and specialize in light gauge welding. While our robotic MIG welding equipment operates at 570 amps, our robotic TIG welding equipment can operate at up to 500-amps. Spot welding, plasma welding, and brazing can also be performed. Fanuc systems with 360 degree rotating positioners and turntables help us to perform multiple welding operations simultaneously. We also have specialized spool guns to perform ...

CNC Laser Cutting

Our machine shop is equipped with CNC and multi-spindle laser cutting machines to process round, square, rectangular, as well as oval tubes or sheets. These high precision laser cutting machines enable us to cut copes, slots, or holes into tubes with outer diameters up to 8" and wall thicknesses up to 0.375". Typical materials processed include carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, copper, and brass. The 2500-watt Mazak Space Gear Mark II 6-axis laser cutting machine at our facility is an all-in-one laser center capable of cutting sheets, pre-bent tubing, and bent tubular structures.

In 2-D mode operation, the laser cuts flat sheets and plates up to 0.87" in thicknesses. The machine also operates in 3-D mode to cut preformed ...

High Speed Tube Perforation

Our high speed hole punching capability enables us to perforate holes in round tubes up to 3” OD with high precision and accuracy. Processing square, rectangular, oval, as well as other special shapes is our specialty.

Cut-to-length perforated tubes can be manufactured from a wide range of materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, and brass. Through high speed tube perforation, we can bore holes in sizes as small as 1/4”. Typical tubes perforated by us include filtration tubes, diffusion tubes, exhaust tubes, and manifolds.

Compared to conventional perforation processes, our high speed perforating capability allows us to offer competitively priced solutions to customers. In addition, the process also facilitates ...
