We offer our customers outstanding research and development services. Clients in the biotech, medical device, aerospace, automotive, chemical, and military fields rely on Tube Methods for all their most exacting and demanding R&D needs. Our Research and Development department works independently of all manufacturing, so you can be sure that each project receives the attention it deserves, whether it is being manufactured or developed.

In a world where industries are always advancing and markets are emerging every day, it is critical to stay ahead of the curve. Regardless of how current or forward thinking your needs may be, you can be assured that Tube Methods can handle it. From the moment you first inquire about our products, our Research and Development department will work with you to ensure you leave with the highest quality and highest performing product at the lowest possible cost. We will work with you to provide suggestions and help develop specifications for your most exacting product needs.

We are experts in alloy development and are capable of providing hands-on support from the initial concept to final product realization. Regardless of the size of your company, we can provide services that range from a technical support system to a full project management for the development of your alloy. Our expert team will help you develop the alloy for your application. We will work with our melt source and see the entire process through until it is completed at our facilities to meet your requirements.

When we work to develop custom products for our customers, we also work to develop custom processes for their manufacturing. Each product receives special attention from our team. We provide feedback to our customers to help make the process of manufacturing their custom parts optimized, repeatable, and cost effective. Our team ensures that every process we develop maintains the highest level of tolerances possible, ensuring the highest quality product is produced.

Outside of product development, we work continuously to ensure we are using the most robust and optimized processes to continually improve the quality of our tubing. We know that when customers come to Tube Methods, they are expecting the best, and we work every day to guarantee this is what we produce.

Our tubing is designed to meet or exceed the most rigorous standards and specifications, whether that be your standards or the industry's, including: ANSI, AS, ASME, ASTM, GE and Mil-T spec. We are ISO 13485:2003, ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 certified. Members of our team also sit on the ASTM Committee F04 on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices.
