With process control as our guiding light, we are organized, timely, and predictable. Our quality system is our DNA and permeates throughout our processes and people.

Tooling Management Systems

Tooling is one of the most important components of any manufacturing process. That is why we have a state-of-the-art tool management system, which ensures we produce quality parts. Our engineers carefully manage and track every aspect of our tooling maintenance, labeling and storage procedures. We have many industry exclusive systems to ensure our tooling is able to consistently produce the best quality tubes with the tightest tolerances possible.

Our tooling is designed to impose the least possible stress on the steel strip while forming and reducing the tube. Customers get excellent formability and uniformity of mechanical properties when fabricating our tubes.
