I am an automation distributor and would like to find straight tubing to sell to my clients who build factory machinery. Do you have In Stock product that can be shipped immediately?
My clients who work in the automation industry need multiple tubes grouped together for their pick and place equipment that can be bonded with thermal bonding. Is this available in stock for immediate shipment?
Yes, we thermally bond Surethane® Polyurethane Tubing in group bondings – twin line, triple line … We can put a lot of different tubes into the tubing bundle and carry them in stock and custom make.
Our clients like bonded tubing because they can use varying color combinations. Bonded tubing allows for quicker installation. Also, bonded tubing saves our clients money because they do not have to pay for vinyl sleeving, cable ties, and spiral wrap to hold the tubes together.
Can you spiral multiple bonded tubing?
Do you have fittings that work with the bonded tubing – straight and spiral?
How do I figure out what type of tubing I need? My automation industry client wants the same type of tubing that they are currently using.
