Capabilities

Custom Shapes & Fabrication

We are experts at taking custom designs and fabricating them into finished products. From the simplest to the most complex shapes, we will manufacture your product with extreme attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship.

From one unit right up to a million, our production shop will cut, bend, grind, form, flare, flange, and CNC machine your tubes with the highest level of precision available. We are able to manufacture nearly any shape, including elliptical, flat oval, square, and round. Custom tubing can be made from nearly any material and can have nearly any surface finish you require.

Even with custom designs, we can achieve outside tolerances as tight as .0003", inside tolerances as tight as ±.0005", tube walls as tight as ±.0003" and lengths as tight as ±.001". That is Tube Methods' dedication to precision.

All of our tubing is crafted to meet or exceed your specifications. We offer a wide range of industry standards including: AMS, ANSI, AS, ASME, ASTM, ISO, Mil-T, NIST, GE, LCS, and Pratt Whitney.
