Ensure that your specifications are correct

Tubes have a huge array of different uses in even more settings. In some situations however, you need to alter the makeup a bit so that they can do their jobs properly. One of the techniques we use to help with this is tube reduction. It comes in handy whenever we have to reduce the end for decorative or functional needs.

Whilst specifying their stainless steel tubes, people can make mistakes. This can result in all kinds of issues later on. Without the right tubing, projects can suffer with delays. In turn this may increase the total cost. If you want to avoid this, read the advice here.


Some individuals specify dimensions and fail to think about the tubing’s fit with other elements. Modules need to have clearance between them. This is the only way they’ll fit together. Your tube may have to aid a wire guide. Said guide could be .025 inches in diameter precisely. You shouldn’t order tubing with an exact diameter of .025 inches because then it won’t fit.

Outer and inner surfaces

Others haven’t thought of the difference between the outside and inside surfaces of the tube. Both have unique roles. This is why it’s important to specify the finishes on each one.


Some tubes will need specific tempers. However, people may fail to ask about the tensile strength. You are unable to quantify temper but it is possible to measure tensile strength. Separate manufacturers link tempers with distinct tensile strength ranges. By not specifying a tensile strength, your tubing could fall into a range you don’t want.

At Multiform Tubes, we have used tube reduction to modify countless products over the years. We strive to meet the highest of standards every single time. We work to the specifics of the project and test every piece of tube to make sure it is perfect. Ultimately we want the end finish to be right so that the performance is great.
