Tubing

The process of manufacturing tubing is a bit of an interesting one. In fact it involves a process in which steel coils are cut to fit the proper size of the tube. Then is cold formed and passed through a welder that is resistant to electricity. In turn the edges get joined together under pressure and the end result is a tubular shape. A welder will test the tubing to make sure that not only does it meet all regulations, but to see just how much it can stand up against before its cut to a designated length and passed along. When the tubing goes through the cold formed process a few things are happening. Not only is it gaining shape, and being tested for strength, but it’s also being conditioned to make sure that it’s not going to break down easily for whatever purpose it gets used for as well as making sure it gets stronger.

Once this process has been completed the tubing will be colored by dye and squeezed so that the shape will be changed to that of the specifications of what it’ll be used for. Much like the process of cold forming, this too will also test and strengthen the tubing and make sure that it’s sturdy enough to stand up against whatever intents and purposes a supplier will use it for. Some may be wondering exactly what these tubes may be used on and that’s a really good question, mostly they’re put to use on auto and hydraulic equipment.

The equipment that uses these sorts of tubing can also be found on elevators and cranes that are found on a construction site. As there is no one size fits all tubing, this means there are various processes that they can go through to suit the needs of what it’ll be used for. Tubes can take on different shapes and that means different machinery. Not only are they used for different purposes and come in different shapes, but most companies will work specifically with one type that is used for multiple purposes.

What many of us don’t realize is that many of the things we use or take for granted in everyday, have some sort of tubing that is used on it and has been cut and molded and fixed to meet these special specifications. This could mean the elevator you’re riding on to prevent from taking the stairs, the forklift your using to not have to lift those heavy pallets, or even the cherry picker you’re in to fix power lines. In fact, power lines are encased in a special type of tubing that prevents workers from being shocked along with their protective gear, when they’re working on the transformers. Tubing plays a vastly important role in our lives and if not for it, a lot of machinery and equipment wouldn’t be usable let alone exist. The process is extensive, but definitely well worth it when you get to see the outcome.
