Aluminum Collapsible Tubes
Plastic tubes are manufactured, printed and capped in-line. Special decoration such as silk
screen printing, foil blocking, and labelling are secondary processes
In addition to a full array of tubular fabrication, Tube Fab/Roman Engineering also offers
custom tube cutting for customers who intend to fabricate themselves.
We have over seventy cutting machines available allowing us to provide burr free "snap" and
"rotary" cutting. We can save our customers the cost of expensive cut off machines and provide
their requirements ready for their in-house fabrication.
We offer a full line of custom chamfers and end treatments, such as knurling, grooving,
serrations', bullet nose tubes, etc.
Closed Nozzle, Long Nozzle, Internally Lacquered Tubes
We have built up a complete support infrastructure
comprising of a fully equipped tool room that ensures precision
toolings and immediate response to break-downs as also dedicated
injection-moulding facility. The processing area has an
efficient air handling system to keep it dust free and deliver
clean tubes manufactured under hygienic conditions.
In order to ensure the quality and exact specifications of our products, we source raw
materials, coatings, inks and lacquer from renowned suppliers from India and abroad, taking
into consideration, the product requirement and the type of printing and finishing required. In
order to distinguish the products to be filled into the tubes, we manufacture them in different
varieties like closed nozzle, long nozzle, internally lacquered tubes and tubes with latex
lining. Before tubes are extruded from the pure aluminium slugs, the slugs are rumbled with zinc
stearate. They are put for trimming where they cut to required length, threaded and annealing
at 410°C, which makes them softened and easily collapsible.
Then, they are lacquered by food grade epoxy lacquer and cured, which prevents the tube from
corrosion or reaction with contents of the tube. The lacquered tubes are then coated with
coating materials of the desired colour, and dried at 150°C and then, printed by four-colour
offset printing machines as per the design, art provided by the clients.
