CNC Mandrel Tube Bending

With capacity up to 90mm in diameter, our three axis CNC machines can achieve extremely accurate and complex tube bending. Supported internally with a mandrel during the bending process, our approach ensures minimal deformation and a high quality, not to mention precise, result. We are also able to bend tube that has been previously laser cut, should you need components such as holes, scallops or angle cut ends.

Rotary Axis Tube Laser Cutting

Suitable for both small batches and large runs, our dedicated rotary axis laser cutting machine is perfect for thin wall round tubes up to 120mm in diameter. Using an automatic process, from the selection of stock lengths to the measurement of tubing, part programming of the rotary axis laser is done through CAD CAM software linked with SolidWorks or similar 3D model drawing packages. This ensures complex parts can be processed quickly, easily and accurately.

Robotic Welding

Consisting of a central robot with two loading areas, our state-of-the-art Robotic Welding Cell ensures high production weld quality, capacity and repeatability – one part is welded while the other is loaded. Our Robotic Welding Cell allows for welding of assemblies of up to 2.1m x 1.2m x 2.8m in cubic volume, with parts as large as 4.8m long. With max welded part weight up to 500kg, precision and consistency is guaranteed.

Precision Cutting Deburring 

Tolerating both round and square tubes of a minimum 12mm size, our precision cutting and brush deburring services produce clean square and accurate cuts at affordable prices. If your tubular parts require burr free ends, our wire brush deburr can cut tubes to provide a smooth, slightly rounded cut end.

Tapered, Swaging and Telescoping Tube

Manipulating tube size and shape is made easy with our rotary hammering process, standard swaging and telescopic tube calculations. Depending on your requirements we can taper tubes to a variety of standard dies or customised to your specifications. If you require expansion or reduction, choose from our standard swaging dies or let us know the sizing you need. For telescopic tubes, we will ensure a wall thickness suitable for a reasonable amount of clearance.

#FAQs

FAQs

  • MY MILD STEEL CARBON TUBE IS STARTING TO SHOW LIGHT SURFACE RUST
    Light surface rust does occur with time, this is perfectly normal but won’t affect the quality of the tube itself. The rust can be easily removed by using a scouring pad and applying a light oil coating afterwards.
  • WHAT GRADE IS CARBON TUBE?
    Standard carbon tube is made from G250 coil material. For automobile roll cages, a specialist grade of steel is used and manufactured to a unique standard. Ask for MSNZ compliance Rollcage Tube if this is what you are sourcing carbon tube for.
  • WHAT GALVANISED THICKNESS IS ON GALVANISED TUBE?
    Standard galvanised tube is manufactured with Z275 coil, which has a minimum of 275gm2 of zinc. Heavier galvanised coated tube can be manufactured ex mill rolling. Please contact our sales team for more information on order quantity and lead time. They’re always happy to help.
  • MY GALVANISED TUBE HAS WHITE POWDER ON THE SURFACE
    In damp or moist conditions, a white powder can form on a galvanised surface. This must be cleaned down prior to painting or powdercoating. To help prevent the white powder from appearing, galvanised tube should be stored with spacer between steel surfaces.
  • WHAT IS THE STANDARD LENGTH OF MILD STEEL CARBON AND GALVANISED TUBE?
    Industrial Tube's standard tube length is invoiced at 6.1 metre lengths but, each tube is approximately 50mm longer so customers can trim the cropped ends if required. Special lengths are available ex-rolling. Non-standard cut to length tube is also available with our value-added precision cutting service. Our team can provide this service for you should you require.
  • WHAT IS THE STANDARD LENGTH OF STAINLESS TUBE?
    Industrial Tube's stainless tube comes in 6 metre lengths. Special lengths are available ex-rolling or within shorter time frames. Our team can also cut-to-length with our value-added precision cutting service. Just let them know if that is what you need.
  • WHEN CAN I GET SPECIALIST LENGTHS RUN?
    Industrial Tube's standard products are rolled every four to eight weeks. Where possible, we will add specialist lengths to these rolling cycles. If you require a particular length produced, please contact our sales and production team for more information.
  • WHAT IS RA FINISH OF STAINLESS HYGIENIC TUBE?
    The AS 1528 requires buff polished to min 320 Ra finish.
  • DO YOU IMPORT TUBE?
    All tube sold by Industrial Tube Australia is manufactured in New Zealand in our Hamilton factory and imported to Australia. All tube processing is completed in Australia to the requirements of our local customers.
  • WHAT IS ERW STEEL TUBING?
    ERW Tube is a reference to Electric Resistance Welded tube. ERW steel tube is available in various shapes; square, rectangular, round and oval and various finishes, wall thicknesses and diameters and has a visible seam along the longitudinal welded edge.
