Extensive tube fabrication capabilities from design and prototyping to delivery
In house tool design, machining, fabricating, and secondaries
Complex parts are our specialty
CEI fabricates precision tubular components ranging in complexity utilizing an extensive variety of manufacturing operations. We can provide turnkey solutions starting with product design assistance, prototyping, and tool making through high volume production, quality assurance and delivery. We service a variety of industries, supplying them with a large assortment of products, subassemblies, systems and equipment.
We perform multiple tube manufacturing operations including flaring, flanging, bending, expanding, piercing, swaging and stamping in house. We proudly offer maximum tube component production flexibility, thanks to a strategic combination of feature-rich custom and standard equipment. Our made-to-order rotary indexing cells can process multiple features into a tube, thus producing complex parts more efficiently. We also utilize in-house CNC machining/turning centers; stamping presses to pierce and swage; wire EDM to process slots and tip configurations, and more. We can laser mark tubing with logos, graphics, serial numbers, or data matrices.
Our Quality Assurance Department helps plan and monitor manufacturing processes to ensure critical specifications are met, from first piece to final inspection, as well as in process data collection. All operations are optimized to meet strict customer specifications.
All tooling, fixtures, and gauges used to form tubular components are designed by our engineering team and built by our experienced toolmakers. We also use our tool & die maintenance department to provide regular service programs for all tools, ensuring all tubular production components run to spec for the long term.
Materials – We work with tubing made of materials including stainless steel, steel, and aluminum. We source raw metal tubing from certified domestic suppliers and qualified global suppliers. All of our tubing facilitates the best formability and highest quality parts traceable to the American Bureau of Standards.
Industries and Applications
We produce precision tubular components for a wide variety of industries including, medical, defense, industrial, and controls. Applications include surgical instruments, medical equipment, firearms, fluid controls, gas systems, and many others.
What is Tube Fabrication?
Tube Fabrication is the process of applying operations, such as cutting, piercing, and forming, to raw tubing material to achieve a finished component.
