Fabrication, CNC Machining, Cutting, and Drilling
Hydro Tube works closely with customers to ensure they are able to develop the most reliable and cost-effective products. We make sub-components to complete fabrications. Weldments are a key aspect of Hydro Tube capability.
Hydro Tube fabrications also include close tolerance machined components, bracketry, fastenings, swaged and formed components.
- Tube Laser Cutting
- CNC Milling and CNC Lathe
Advanced CNC Mills and Advance Precision CNC Lathes and Processing allow us make many of the custom parts in-house needed to complete our customers’ products. Control of this part of the manufacturing process gives us a speed to delivery and cost advantage. Small quantity custom parts are no problem and without the premium charges, delays and freight costs charged by high volume manufacturers.
- Manual and CNC Saw Cutting
From one piece to thousands of pieces, our Manual and CNC saw cutting services provide clean precise cuts in tubing up to 4.0 inch around. Using cold saw technology, advance coolant and precision fixturing means we can guarantee the quality of our cuts over the entire production run. Bundle loading and multi-station material handling is extremely efficient and versatile. Inline wire brush deburring is also offered for parts 12 inches long and up. We also offer band saw cutting for parts up to 12.0 inch around. We post finish these to give the best possible cut accuracy.
- CNC Turning
- Drilling / Thermal Drilling with capacity for any size and shape hole
Conventional and CNC drilling, as a primary or secondary operation, adds to our provision of finished parts. This gives us faster response time and total control of the quality of parts delivered. We also provide a range of thermal drilling sizes. A thermal drill heats metal to a plastic state through pressure and friction. The hole formed is many times deeper than the material thickness. This provides depth for threading and additional strength. Thin sheets can be boded using the thermal drill principle.
Automatic, Synchronized, and CNC tapping is also a Hydro Tube core competency. Conventional thread cutting, CNC machine thread milling, and tapered tapping is common. Thread forming of straight and tapered threads is also used to increase strength and provide a chipless option.
- ID Broaching, Keyways and Splines
ID spline and Keyway Broaching is used often for axel components. Short broached lengths can be press formed, while longer broaching is performed on dedicated broaching machines.
