The purpose of this training is to provide valuable lessons regarding how to apply the Swagelok method of tube bending, as well as, several tips and shortcuts that will help to take some of the mystery out of tube bending. The Swagelok Method is accurate for the layout of all angles up to and including 180 degrees in all sizes within the capacity of the Swagelok tube bender.
