TubeWorks is a godsend! What used to take me 20 minutes, TubeWorks did in a few mouse-clicks! A project that would have taken me two weeks, took me two days and that included the learning curve (which was ten minutes, honestly).

Harco Metal Products, Inc.Scottsdale, Arizona

To be able to quickly and easily pull apart the drawings received from our customers, understand the requirements and then be able to process the work as efficiently as we now do has saved our company thousands of pounds in both quotation time and in the decrease in the amount of setting scrap.

TBF InternationalWalsall, United Kingdom

After months of struggling with trying to import customers STEP files directly into our new all electric CNC bending machine with errors, we tested Tube Works and it's now a piece of cake to create LRA or $$$ files to directly import it into the bender. It only takes a minute or so!!

Quality Terrain B.V.Netherlands

TubeWorks has streamlined our tube design process by allowing us to incorporate our tube bending equipment’s capabilities during the initial design phase inside SolidWorks. TubeWorks has quickly become a key tool in Yoshimura R&D’s tube design process.

Feature Pro SolidWorks
STEP / IGES IMPORT

TubeWorks can import files in step or igs formats. (TubeWorks will process many additional file formats).

OPEN DWG / DXF

A convenient feature to enable viewing of dwg or dxf files and export as pdf.

MEASUREMENT TOOLS

With a simple click, determine key metrics like bend radii, wall thickness, and total lengths. Click on an individual tube face and the corresponding vital information is displayed.

EXPORT PDFS

Export bend data in a professional .pdf report to share part numbers, tube profiles, tube OD, units of measure, CLR, solid model image, and other essential information with your team.

BEND ON BEND SUPPORT

Two curves of different radii with no straight separation are well tolerated inside the software. TubeWorks is capable handling bends where compound tooling would be used.

MANUAL BEND REPORT

Produce an easy to read report containing stop positions, rotations, angles, direction of rotation. This makes bending on a manual machine as easy as following step by step instructions. Apply stretch compensation and display the corrected data.

EXTRACT BEND DATA

Automatic extraction of all bend data including tube specs like CLR, bend radii plus full LRA and XYZ data. Lite edition pulls data with just one click, while the full edition can automatically pull data upon import.

CALIBRATE TOOLING

The new TubeWorks tooling calibration feature applies corrected data in the design phase – when optimization matters most. Bend the tube according to instructions, record the result, and TubeWorks will automatically calculate spring-back and stretch. All the data is stored within the tooling log alongside the associated tools.

STRETCH COMPENSATION

Selecting the material specification will automatically apply stretch compensation to the bend regions, calculate corrective bend data and developed tube length.

TOOLING LOG

Record your Machines, Bend tooling, Material specifications and Test data into a centralized location. Allowing fast feedback of available tooling, corrective bend data and developed tube length.

OVER-BEND CALCULATIONS

Selecting the material specification will automatically apply over-bend compensation to the bend regions and calculate corrective bend data.

FEASIBILITY STUDY

Compare your imported model with what you’ve stored in your tooling log to assess if your bend is feasible with the tools you have on hand—an easy way to save time and money on tool resources.

DESIGN TUBE

Design a new tube from scratch with no CAD experience necessary. Simply point and click to get precision lengths, angles, and rotations.

EXTEND CENTERLINE

Extend the endpoints of your centreline for tubes with end manipulation.

SEND TO BENDER

The highly versatile design exporter at the core of TubeWorks can send your creation directly to the bender as a .$$$, .SV or .S2B file. Alternatively a pdf report including LRA and XYZ can be created and values entered into the machine manually.

CHANGE BEND RADII

Embrace complete design customization by changing any of your bend radii to match the dies you have in stock. Bend data adjustments are automatically recalculated.

UNBEND TUBE FOR LASER

TubeWorks intelligently unbends tubes for laser cutting and automatically applies stretch compensation to the bend regions so the flattened tube is ready to cut. TubeWorks Add-In also unbends single bends and marks bend locations for alignment in post bending operations.

VERTICAL CUT PREPARATION FOR LASER

With a single click, TubeWorks normalizes your cuts, notches, and holes for laser cutting applications without a 6th axis (head tilt). TubeWorks can also regenerate the centerline to the new, corrected placement.

CREATE FLAT PATTERN FOR 3-AXIS LASER

TubeWorks Add-In creates flat patterns for a 3-axis laser which can be exported as a dwg or dxf file.

CREATE TUBE

Create tube geometry by entering LRA or XYZ into an input table. Or import a $$$ file and TubeWorks does the rest!
