Split-seam tubular products. Cost effective, zero-waste alternatives.

Do you need a tubular product, or a solution that looks like a tube? Think about that; a tube is sealed all the way around which is necessary for applications such as the transfer of liquids or gasses. However, the great majority of tubular applications don’t necessarily need a tube, but rather a solution that looks like one.

We take flat coiled stock, shear it, shape it and ship it at less cost—with no waste.

Split-seam tubular products are economical options to cut-to-length tubing and costly machined parts. Tubular components are used in applications such as spacers, stand-offs, compression limiters, rings, bushings, tubes, tension sleeves, roll pins, alignment dowels and couplers.

Our split seam tubular products are manufactured with modern, high-speed equipment and proprietary flexible-tooling technology. Stock and custom configurations are available to meet specific requirements.

What do you need your tubular product to do? It’s all in the shape and the seam.

  • Does your tube need to be held securely in a plastic housing? Consider adding a diamond impression to the tube exterior to ensure injected plastic material fills the void.
  • Need a tight fit without being molded in? We’ll deliver a tube with an open seam that can be compressed during insertion and will spring back to shape for a secure fit.
  • Need a smooth interior surface to enable rotation without “catching?” An angled seam will enable such movement, for applications such as a caster in a chair. A notched seam will “lock” the edges together. Ask us about different seam options best suited for your application.

Skip the tooling charges—tap our extensive library first.

Our proprietary, flexible tooling technology and extensive library of more than 10,000 configurations eliminates the need for custom tooling in most applications. What’s more, we operate an in-house tooling center to deliver the perfect tool—right when it’s needed—at a fraction of the traditional cost.
