175mm [7.000”] diameter and above for some operations.
Tube wall thickness may range from 0.15mm [0.006”] to 12.0mm [0.500”].
Wire diameters up to 9.0mm [0.375”] may be fabricated.
Materials include but are not limited to: LC steel, HSLA, SS steel (most grades),
Copper, Brass, Aluminum, Titanium, and Incoloy.
Combining these in house capabilities with other locally available
