Tube Cutting


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 cut  +-.025  +-.025  

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.
