Processing of SST hypotubing to extremely thin wall thickness – achieving a diameter to wall ratio of 100:1 is possible on certain sizes of tubing (over .080” diameter ID) by a specialized hybrid grinding process. By grinding both the OD and the ID of the tubes/parts, very consistent
wall thickness deviation can be achieved and thus a very high diameter to wall ratio potentially attained.
This fact in itself is pretty eye-opening, but there are other advantages to the Hybrid Grinding Process as it pertains to the processing of thin walled tubing that could open avenues for the engineer that has run into a manufacturing snag.
Fill out this brief form to discover 5 things you need to know about grinding hypotubes to an extremely thin wall to achieve positive outcomes for your next hypotubing project.
