Southampton, PA, United States, 2009/11/24 - Formed shapes eliminate the need for extra fittings and clamps, reduce the occurrence of kinking and flow problems, ease installations, and improve the look of finished products. Tubing materials include PVC, polyurethane, and nylon.
Tubing manufacturer NewAge® Industries now offers tubing and hose that’s heat formed into specific shapes. Parts are custom designed and produced using heat and special tooling. Many applications that involve multiple sections of tubing or hose, along with fittings and clamps to make connections, can benefit from this customization.
Heat-formed shapes eliminate extra fittings and clamps, their potential for leaks, and their inventory. With a heat-formed shape, only one part is needed instead of separate pieces that must bend around or through other equipment and machinery.
Turns and twists can cause some tubing and hose to kink, thereby cutting off fluid or air flow. A formed piece that’s custom made for a specific use greatly reduces the risk of kinking and flow impediment.
Heat-formed shapes also ease and speed installations because there are fewer connections to make. They reduce the need for cumbersome fittings and clamps, which can be critical in restricted space applications. The reduction of connections improves the appearance of finished products, too, as fluid or air transfer is streamlined into a single unit.
A wide variety of shapes are possible, from single elbows and curves to parts involving coiled sections, flared ends, and multiple twists and bends. Materials that can be heat formed include PVC, polyurethane, nylon, and other thermoplastics. Both unreinforced tubing and braid reinforced hose may be used. And because NewAge stocks millions of feet of tubing and hose, heat-formed shapes can often be manufactured quickly (following the creation of tooling if needed). Production by experienced Custom Fabrication team members in a controlled environment on dedicated equipment assures high-quality finished parts. Other customization includes thermally-bonded tubing, hose assemblies, coiling, cutting and printing, and dip molded tubing.
