Ultra Small Diameter Capillary Tubing
When Smaller is Better, HandyTube Offers Ultra-Small
Ultra-Small Diameter tubing is the breakthrough solution many industries have sought
With electronics and hardware continuing to trend ever smaller toward micro sized, HandyTube is answering market demand with its line of Ultra-Small Diameter (USD) tubing.
HandyTube’s engineered solutions consist of tubing products with an outside diameter (OD) less than .032" or roughly 0.80mm. The demands of these engineered products have been steadily increasing as the desire for smaller assemblies and higher-pressure requirements have become a necessity. The challenges related to producing these products may seem overstated, but with tubing inside diameters (ID) reaching the size of a human hair, the task at hand becomes immediately apparent.
An even larger feat is to produce USD tubing in timesaving long-coil form. Coil tubing allows for customers to reduce setup time as well as scrap generated from machine setup. It also enables consumers to produce many different fabricated items from the same coil stock. HandyTube is the leading manufacturer of long, seamless, stainless steel coil tubing and is able to produce seamless tubing upwards of 6,000 feet long.
To answer the request for smaller tubing dimensions and smoother surfaces, HandyTube is developing new processes and equipment to allow cold-drawing of seamless material in coil form. Supporting the inside diameter further in the drawing process and holding tooling to much more stringent requirements enables HandyTube to achieve what in the past was thought to be impractical, if not impossible: successfully producing tubing as small as .0200" OD x .0040" ID – a breakthrough for which so many industries have been searching. With additional value-added capabilities, such as cutting to length and bending, HandyTube has proven to be the turnkey solution for many companies.
