Depending on the wall thickness and tolerance (length and squareness) we can saw cut, core cut (blade), or lathe cut tubing to length.
|Type||Length tolerance||Squareness tolerance||Notes|
|Saw cut||+-.070||+-.070||Sawcuts are recommended for wall thicknesses below .060 (5" OD and below) and .080 over 5" OD.|
Blade cuts are recommended for thin-walled tubing below .062 (for 5" OD and below) and .080 for tubing >5"OD
Blade cuts are very square and have a soft feather edge (no sawdust). The feather edge is a result of heat generated from the round blade.
|Lathe cut||+-.020||+-.020||Core lathe cuts are our premium. They are not recommended for walls < .060 in tubing greater than 5" OD.|
Thin-walled tubing is cut by a disc knife. with .020-.030 length tolerance and .020 squareness.
Cut tubing is individually wrapped and boxed for shipment.
