The Science Behind Medical Precision Tubes

Medical Precision Tubes

Medical precision tubes have stricter requirements than other stainless steel tubes. The size specifications are usually controlled between 0.25~0.3MM, the wall thickness is controlled between 0.08~0.2MM, the tolerance is guaranteed to be within 0.01MM, and its inner hole is smooth and the surface is Most of them will be polished. The material is usually 304, 316, or 316L stainless steel. It has good softness, corrosion resistance, high-temperature resistance, wear resistance, tensile strength, and waterproofness and provides excellent electromagnetic shielding performance.

For example, stainless steel stethoscope tees, axillary crutches, etc. require medical precision stainless steel pipes to be bent, so the stainless steel pipe bending process requires high toughness and ductility of the material. 304 medical laser cutting stainless steel tube is softer than 201, has better toughness and ductility, is not easy to break, and is convenient for bending and other processes. For example, some accessories of nursing beds require welding of pipes. 316 medical precision stainless steel pipes have good welding performance and can be welded using standard welding methods. However, to obtain good corrosion resistance, the welded section of 316 stainless steel pipe needs to be annealed after welding. If 316L stainless steel pipe is used, post-weld annealing treatment is not required.

A precision tube is a high-precision, high-brightness seamless steel tube produced through cold drawing or cold rolling processes. Its inner and outer diameter dimensions can be accurate to within 0.2MM. It ensures bending and torsional strength while being light in weight, so it is widely used in manufacturing precision mechanical parts and engineering structures. It is also commonly used to produce various conventional weapons, barrels, shells, bearings, etc.

Precision steel pipe is a high-precision steel pipe material processed by cold drawing or hot rolling. Because precision steel pipes have no oxide layer on the inner and outer walls, can withstand high pressures without leakage, have high precision, high smoothness, no deformation in cold bending, no cracks in flaring and flattening, etc., they are mainly used to produce products with pneumatic or hydraulic components, such as cylinders or The oil cylinder can be a seamless pipe or a welded pipe.

Main features:

The inner and outer walls of the steel pipe have high precision and high smoothness. After heat treatment, the steel pipe has no oxidation layer and the inside is highly clean. The steel pipe can withstand high pressure, does not deform during cold bending, has no cracks in expanding and flattening, and can be subjected to various complex deformations and mechanical processing. deal with. Steel pipe color: white with bright color, high metallic luster. Main uses: steel pipes for automobiles, and users who have high requirements for the precision and smoothness of steel pipes.
