We don’t compromise. We manufacture precision tubes and cylinders to meet your specific requirements. Lowest tolerances in diameter, wall thickness and straightness for components up to 3 meters in length are a huge advantage. And there are no limits on the choice of material used.
These components are generally used in applications such as machinery and plant engineering, in medical, printing and pump systems, and in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. We produce the exact quantity you require – from a single part to a year’s supply of several hundred – based on component designs developed with you.
COOLING ROLLERS FOR THE STEEL INDUSTRY
Thanks to work hardening, these rollers feature outstanding surface hardness, resulting in less wear and longer service life. And minimal use of materials also contributes to greater economy.
You can rely on our high-precision tubes through thick and thin. We produce tubes with wall thicknesses ranging from 1.0 – 5.0 mm and sleeves with wall thicknesses from 0.1 to 1.0 mm. We achieve surface finish qualities of up to Ra = 0.1 µm with a diameter tolerance in the region of H7. A huge range of materials can be used for these super-thin tubes, including nickel-based alloys, stainless steel, nickel, aluminum, copper, niobium, tantalum and titanium. Our thin-walled precision tubes have a broad range of applications.
Ultra-thin and ultra-strong: Electric motors rotate at up to 20,000 rpm. Our sleeves allow the motors to easily withstand the high centrifugal forces involved.
Seamless: We use flowforming to transform sheets or forgings into conical or cylindrical housings – for example, into split cases for vacuum pumps, filter housings, vessels for medical technology, and pressure vessels of all kinds. We work with stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, aluminum and many other metals. And functional surfaces and flanges can be integrated during production, making the production process even leaner.
Tough as nails: We use flowforming to manufacture high-strength wear rings with wall thicknesses < 0.3 mm. These repair sleeves are pressed onto the sealing surfaces of drive shafts, for example in ship propulsion systems. This delays wear by the sealing lip and thus reduces costly machine downtime. Work hardening increases the level of hardness throughout the cross-section of the corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
