Tube grinding is done at New England Small Tube in a large variety of standard and custom designs depending on the customer’s specific application or print.
Swiss-style screw machining is a fast, precise and repeatable way to give parts a particular shape, size, or feature that's quicker and more cost-effective than other processes.
New England Small Tube’s experience in milling and turning allows for holding tight tolerances with quick turnarounds on a consistent basis.
Beads or bulges are often added to a tube to provide a stop for contact with another part. The internal and external features of a bead are rounded.
Expanding is a method used to increase the diameter of a tube. In general, a stainless steel tube can be expanded up to 40%, but in some cases, certain materials can be worked farther.
Barbed tubes are a great way to secure a plastic tube or to retain a tube in an epoxied assembly
Flaring and flanging are completed with very similar processes but typically serve very different purposes.
The corset provides not just a grooved shape on the outside diameter, but also constricts the inner diameter as well. This can be useful when trying to limit or control the flow of a liquid inside the tube.
Here at New England Small Tube we understand that not only does a part need to work properly but appearances do make a difference as well. A good looking finished part says as much about quality as the process that produced the part. Mouse over the images to view each finishing service and click to visit that service page.
Using pressure and temperature variations allow the internal dimensions of the part to be very finely polished or deburred more uniformly and with greater accuracy.
A smooth and uniform surface can be applied to the outer diameter with use of fine abrasives and buffing compounds. Our buffing operations can produce incredibly polished finishes on tubing products.
Electropolishing is used not only to polish stainless steel but also to deburr, clean and passivate. It can be used as a way of polishing more complex parts with areas that are typically harder to process using different methods.
Depending on your need, a coating could be the best solution to provide properties such as corrosion resistance, hydrophobic conditions, or insulation.
