tube end forming and fabrication

tube end forming and tube formingWe specialize in the 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 material loss. Most end forming & machining can be done during the tube cut-off process. Wire & tubular parts are bent without kinking, headed & bulged.

  • Common and custom end forming and part machining options available
  • Most end configurations can be achieved during the tube cut-off process
  • Minimal distortion or collapse to the outside or inside diameters
  • Precision tube fabricating & bending services - up to billions of parts
