Does Sharpe Products bend only steel, stainless steel, and aluminum pipe and tube?
Although these three materials are the most commonly requested pipe and tube material from our customers to be bent, the Sharpe Tube Bending Team also has experience in bending brass, bronze, copper, nickel, titanium, and more.
Why is it more expensive to run smaller quantity runs?
Sharpe Products is happy to accommodate any size run. All jobs require set-up labor. It is generally more expensive to run smaller jobs because when you divide the cost of the set-up among small quantities it is more costly than dividing it among a larger quantity run. Stock and release programs (Inventory Management) can also save on set-up charges and lead times. Contact a Sharpe Representative for more information on these programs.
How should I submit a drawing of my part?
When submitting a drawing of your part, some important information that we need is the type of material (steel, stainless steel, aluminum, etc.), outside diameter (O.D.), wall thickness, and the preferred center line radius (C.L.R.). It is also helpful to give the dimensions in XYZ coordinates. Sharpe Products can accept the following formats for drawings: Solidsworks, .IGES, .DWG, .DXF, .STP, or .PDF files.
If you have any questions or problems sending us your file, please do not hesitate to contact us at 800-879-4418 or e-mail Customer Service.
