Metal Tube Drawing
Accellent's metal tube drawing capability ranges in size from 0.010 inch (.25mm) OD to 0.625 inch (16mm) OD in both seamless and welded and drawn types. Drawn tube can be delivered in coil, random straight lengths and dead cut lengths from 0.25 inch (6mm) to 20 feet (6,100mm). Tube drawing is performed with hard tooling on ID and OD surfaces to allow precise dimensional control and smooth surfaces. The drawing process design includes intermediate anneals and variable drawing reductions, allowing precise control of mechanical properties and microstructural quality.
Accellent offers a wide range of stainless steel, precipitation hardenable, nickel, cobalt, titanium, zirconium, niobium, and tantalum alloys and precious metals. Accellent will provide sample quantities as low as 25 feet and production quantities up to 1,000,000 feet.
Accellent will source material and develop drawing processes for your custom alloy needs. Accellent's drawn tube products are manufactured locally in North America, Europe and Asia.
