We can provide TIG and MIG welded parts using a combination of hand and seam welding. Our capacity ranges from 1-2 (prototypes) all the way to production runs of 10,000 to 15,000 parts per month. We have a quality system and certified welders to meet all of our customerís requirements.


Facility
Our Chicago location is beneficial to our customers when lead time is critical for job completion. We are located close to major service centers, metal fabricators and specialty facilities that can be utilized for material and additional services.


Commitment to Quality
Cooper FormTube offers a variety of services for your welding and rolling requirements. FormTube produces both longitudinal and circumferential automatic welding of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Our equipment can accommodate and produce various shapes which include: flat sheets and plates; cylinders; bands; tubes; cones; cabinets; housing and tanks.


Welding
Our capabilities are in TIG, MIG and sub-ARC. We have automatic seam welding machines for both longitudinal and circumferential welding. While most of our products are fabricated on our automated seamers, we also have hand and spot welding. Our precision welding tables allow us to use fixtures for your specific hand welded fabrications.


Roll Forming
Our wide range of rollers will certainly accommodate any of your fabrication needs. We use initial pinch, 2-roll, 3-roll, and 4-roll machines. The recent addition of CNC controls has allowed us to move past the traditional cylinder and into more complex shapes. From ovals to boxes, we welcome any part for your project. Custom programming will ensure tolerances are kept with consistency.


Shearing
Our shear is 144" long with .250" thickness capacity.


Stamping
This is our newest service for those customers who need specific markings etched on their parts. Computerized controls allow us to mark not only numbers and letters but also unique patterns. Unlike our other services, this can be used on plastic, paper, and many other surfaces.
