Industrial Tube Manufacturing has established itself as a key player in the stainless steel tube market. The company’s dedication to constantly improve and expand has enabled it to attain remarkable success in the industry.
Bolstering its national reputation as a reliable supplier of high-quality stainless tube, Industrial Tube commissioned what is described as a game-changing 3D tube laser cutter last year.
Industrial Tube general manager, Ian Foster, explains with the market demanding efficiency, versatility, and extreme attention to detail, investment in automation and innovation has been a key focus for the business.
Known as ‘Pro-Tube Services’, Industrial Tube offers 3D laser cutting, CNC drilling, deburring, tapering, swaging and telescoping of tube, in addition to an extensive milled tube offering.
“Pro-Tube raises the bar in terms of what’s possible in tube processing and manufacturing. Technology coupled with the experience and knowledge of our engineers means we can meet the needs of New Zealand businesses that are seeking high-quality, customised components,” Foster says.
Tony Parton, director of Smokai Limited, says Industrial Tube was able to help his product development process.
“Our product is precision engineered, and if the components are even a tenth of a millimetre out, the final product may not fit together. Industrial Tube’s 3D laser tube cutting provides us with the precision components we need,” says Parton.
“One aspect we like about Industrial Tube’s laser cutter is the machine’s internal catcher, which means that the commonly used anti-splatter spray is not needed, and this results in a cleaner end product.
“It is obvious when you see the quality and care of their work that they really do take ownership of the part they each play in the production process. We really appreciate that as a client,” says Parton.
Industrial Tube stainless steel ‘hygienic tube’ bears the line marking confirming it is manufactured in New Zealand to AS 1528.1 standard. Furthermore, New Zealand based production facilities ensure hygienic tube is available for both projects and maintenance.
“Our hygienic tube has been installed in a number of projects around New Zealand and we are delighted to be able to offer both tube and precision components for our customers,” says Foster.
