Our Swagelok Tube Bending Essentials course offers foundational knowledge needed to introduce bent tubing to your system to eliminate connections and leak points found in traditional welded pipe systems. Upon course completion, students will be able to properly cut and deburr tubing, explain the purpose of various marks used in tube bending, bend tubing with the correct bend angle made in the correct location, identify potential bend defects, and properly assemble a box comprised of various lengths of tubing, bent according to need. 


Each student will receive a course Certificate of Completion signed by our Swagelok Certified Trainer, in addition to several valuable take-aways from the course.
