  • Bending

In the field of bending, Refco does not shy away from any challenge. We also supply small series or complex products. Refco uses mandrel bending machines that can process tubes up to a diameter of 108 mm. We can even bend the largest sizes with a radius of 1,2 times the tube diameter, enabling the creation of compact constructions without needing to braze fittings.

Your inquiry is our challenge, from small series to complex products. We develop the necessary bending tools in-house.

Rolling tubes into rings and into single or multiple spirals is also one of our specialties.

  • Tube collaring

To create an angle branch a ‘T’ can be added. However, Refco can drill holes with a vertical collar, which results in the creation of a branch without a ‘T’: 

  • Until diameter 108 mm
  • Endless possibilities regarding spacing, diameter of the hole, degree of rotation and almost unlimited length of workpiece
  • Very complex manifolds are possible

For larger series, we use an automatic collaring machine.

  • Spinning

To close a tube end, the customer can opt to give a semi-spherical shape to the tube. This is done by placing the tube in a rotating die.

Spinning closes the end of the tube by for example forming a semi-sphere form in a rotating die. This process requires less labour and makes the piece more resistant to high internal pressure.

  • End forming

To finish off a tube end, customers can opt for end-plate brasing. Besides this technique and spinning, sawn tubes can also be given another end-forming treatment:

  • Reduce diameter
  • Expand diameter
  • Create joints

  • Brazing & welding

Brazing or hard soldering is the technique whereby the temperature of the workpieces is locally heated up to more than 450 °C by means of a gas burner. Thereafter, the liquefied filler metal flows over the base metal in order to join the pieces together.

Refco’s large team of specialized operators braze on a daily basis. They join:
