Centerless grinding at New England Small Tube Corporation can enhance the overall performance of the material or part by ensuring incredibly precise OD dimensions and providing smooth, cosmetic surface finishes.
Tolerances on the OD of a material can be held as tight as ± .0002 for most applications.
Custom tube sizes can be fabricated by selecting a target ID, with a larger starting OD, then centerless grinding the OD down within the target OD tolerance. Using this method, NEST is able to provide tubing in a quicker typical turnaround and better surface finishes, than most re-drawing processes.
Centerless ground material and parts are fabricated upon request from stock material.
