Start saving time and materials - avoid costly bending mistakes!

If you've ever had to fabricate a tubular chassis or roll cage, you can appreciate how difficult it can be to achieve the desired geometry.  Laying out a series of bends can be a mind-twisting experience.

Here's what some customers had to say about the program:

"We have been using the program for 2 months now and it has saved us time in fabricating costs and scrap material has been cut to a minimum.  We have calculated the time to be about 1/3 less in production.  To answer the question about the bend calculator being a good purchase for us, I can say a big YES to that! Thanks for a great product!"
  Steve Brown - Steve Brown Race Cars - Amston, Connecticut

"The program is working great, and it has saved a lot of time and money for me. It was a good investment!  Thanks."
  Mike Beltz - Lansing, Illinois

"I find this program very helpful and it definitely cuts down on waste."
  Jim Pulliam, Dragstar Chassis - Old Monroe, Missouri

With ETC's Bend Calculator Pro™, all you have to do is enter your bend radius, and desired tube dimensions.  The program does all of the hard calculations for you, and tells you where to mark the straight tube for all of the bends, before you even get close to a bender!
