We specialize in contract tube cutting of all workable alloys, including stainless steel hypodermic tubing (hypotube), exotics, brass & copper. We use a multi-stage fabrication process to shear cut tubular parts with no scrap between cuts. Most end forming is accomplished during the tube cut-off process. Tubular parts are also bent without kinking.
Four Slide Products provided accurate delivery information not only in the quoting stage but through the production phase.

Our custom tube shear cutting machines can cut, bend, and end form your tubular parts as short as 0.020″ ± 0.001″ with little OD/ID distortion, burr-free, and with no material loss between cuts. Square cut edges, with most end forming achieved in-process. Runs from hundreds to billions of parts.Let's Get Started!
Contract tube cutting of all workable alloys, including exotics, stainless steel, Rodar/Kovar®, 52 Alloy, brass and copper. We’ll cut your tubing or source tubing for you (including custom tube sizes). End configurations are done simultaneously. Tubular parts are bent without kinking, with little distortion and no collapse to the outside or inside diameters.Let's Get Started!
Fast and efficient, shear cutting can be combined with other forming processes to save time and reduce costs. Shear cutting produces no material loss between parts, leading to significant cost savings. With tight tolerances and square cuts, shear cutting achieves extremely high production rates and is scalable for high-volume runs.Let's Get Started!
Precision-cut metal spacers and bushings for stand-offs, sleeves, axles, pins, distance bushings, and custom components. Shear cutting creates burr-free, square cut edges with no material loss between cuts. Lengths range from 0.020″ to 18″, with tolerances to ± 0.001.” Runs are scalable from hundreds to billions of parts.Let's Get Started!
Shear cutting alone (without ID support) would introduce some inner diameter distortion. Innovative in-house tooling at Four Slide Products delivers all of the benefits of shear cutting plus internal and external support to eliminate distortion. Suitable for all workable alloys, with diameters up to 1/2″ x 0.020″ wall standard (or larger upon request).Let's Get Started!
The Electro-Chemical cutting process consists of an abrasive/conductive blade, a 12 volt DC power source and an electrolyte solution. The DC current flows from the work piece through the electrolyte to the blade. This provides deburring through a reverse plating process. Most electrically conductive materials are suitable, however some are better suited due to their conductive properties.Let's Get Started!
Shear tube cutting is more affordable than laser tube cutting. In addition, lasers can only perform one function: cutting. As a result, additional fabrication steps such as bending and end forming must be setup separately. Therefore, we recommend shear tube cutting for your primary tube fabrication needs. Customers who require etching or labeling can then schedule laser tube cutting as a secondary operation through another vendor.Let's Get Started!
