Tubes

The extrusion technology used in plastic pen nibs can also be used to mold tubes of various forms. A number of typical examples are shown below. Small-bore and thin-walled tubes are our specialty. We are also experienced in creating high-performance PEEK tubes.

Test lots can be made for the size ranges shown. We will also make efforts to mold tubes of other sizes, at client’s request. We can also cut to specified lengths and create long tubes, as well as produce small-lot jobs.

*We have demonstrated success in developing tubes for medical use, and are now considering expanding into analytical devices and other areas.

Items marked ※ are untested, but are estimated to be possible.
