Manufacturing Capabilities

Our manufacturing capabilities cover the entire spectrum of potential requirements and needs and include vertical integration.

Bending

Bending

Bending

We have diverse capabilities ranging from simple single bend tubes to complex multi-leg assemblies and manifolds up to 3 inches OD. Materials capabilities are stainless steel, Inconel, titanium and aluminum. Equipment exists for bending, coiling, forming and various bending methods.

Braiding

Braiding

Braiding

Our high speed winders and braiding machines produce both machine-braided hose as well as slip-off mandrel braids. Manufactured in metallic alloys in ¼ inch diameter (6mm) and up, our braids provide coverage and security for the underlying corrugated hose with a multi-layered approach to design and configurations that still allows for the greatest hose flexibility without sacrificing performance.

Fire Sleeve Extrusion

Fire Sleeve Extrusion

Fire Sleeve Extrusion

Our application of an integral silicone fire sleeve onto PTFE hoses will meet the fire resistant and fireproof requirements of AS1055 Type II.

Molding

Molding

We can conduct over-molding of silicone rubber onto simple and complex PTFE and metal hose assemblies to create an integral sleeve that meets AS1055 Type II fire resistance and vibration dampening requirements.

Molding

Pre-Form

We can “preform” our PTFE hose sections through a steaming process that allows us to contour the hose into any desired shape. This process is typically utilized when the application of the hose will violate the minimum bend radius of the hose.

Hydroforming

Hydroforming

Hydroforming

Our internal capabilities for traditional stamping and hydroforming allow for speed and cost reduction initiatives. Our hydroforming press exerts a 10,000 psi chamber pressure and a punch force of 280 tons. The machine is equipped to handle the high-mix, low-volume production seen in the aerospace industry.
