Miniature Tube Forming And Manipulation
High precision miniature tubes are used in a variety of drug delivery and sensor applications, from pressure sensors to temperature sensors.
The use of thin walled miniature tubes, made from strong materials including stainless steel, titanium and nitinol, reduce weight where this is a consideration and of course reduce space requirements.
Other applications for special miniature tubes include process industries, the oil and gas industry, high-specification printer applications, heat exchangers – as well as any application requiring delivery of a liquid or gas into a confined space.
Stainless steel and nickel alloys are mainly used for their malleability, strength, magnetic and thermal properties.
These parts and micro-assemblies are used in end products such as: heat exchangers, ink-jet assemblies, drug-delivery systems, sensors and many other applications that need tube manipulation.
Below is an illustration of the types of needle ends we could produce.
