Also known as tubular stamping, tube stamping is a relatively new technology used to produce complex, tubular parts that are generally uncommon in the stamping world.

Tube stamping offers design advantages, greater strength-to-weight ratios and up to 30% lower manufacturing costs than screw-machined parts, die casting and aluminum extrusions. We can often implement special design features, such as hemmed or coined edges, without incurring additional machining costs.

Our Tubular Stamping Process - Features & Benefits

Our team can convert your existing machined parts into tubular stamped components to achieve the following benefits:

  • Class A finishes
  • Cost-savings and weight reduction opportunities
  • Highly complex, tubular shapes and parts
  • Varying shapes (round, oval, square, etc.) and diameters
  • Value-added features such as fasteners can be installed during the stamping process 
  • Aesthetic design features such as hemmed edges and coined shapes

Common Tubular Stamped Shapes

Below is a sample of common tubular stamped shapes:

  • Open, diagonal and overlap seams
  • Angular ends
  • Oil grooves
  • Special shapes
  • Flanged or nosed-in ends
  • Notches
  • V-joint
  • Projections
  • Beads
  • Handles 
  • Bolt threads
