High volume oem suppliers have a rotating head bender in line with the automated tubing welding machinery. material starts as sheet on a 4 ft diameter roll and is formed into tubing and welded and bent all in one continous in line process. there is about a 5 story high loop between the last stage welding and forming dies and the bender since the flow thru the bender is a stop and go process and the tubing welder is constant speed.

That is a really cool machine. i've seen a smaller one like this run and they have it turned down alot in the video. the one i saw was spitting the things out way faster. They have a machine shop show in Chicago once a year and they have a whole lot of way cool things like this. it's really something to see and way worth the trip. takes like 2 days just to go threw it all.
oh and on the price probably a whole lot less that what you would have paid for it about 2 years ago machines prices r really down right now. a new small haas Mill is going for about $24,000 where about 2 years ago you couldn't touch it for under $35,000. Of course i wouldn't buy a haas any way they r not that good too many plastic and aluminum pieces but if your in the market!
Now the beer and pliers that is something my husband could do LOL. :D
