A Typical Bike Frame Construction

Many bikes are made with stainless steel tubes as the frame of the bike. Stainless steel tubes are used in place of aluminum because stainless steel is stronger and more durable than aluminum. An ss tube is the main component of a bike frame. A tube shape is used because a solid block of metal would be too heavy to maneuver the bike from one place to another. The construction of bike frames is simple, and the ss tube is fashioned into the desired shape using a series of metal shapers and cutter to create the bike frame. The basic bicycle construction process goes something like this: Continue reading

Customization Options for Hypodermic Needles

Titanium hypodermic tubing is thin, hollow rods formed by machines to create thin, narrow rods that are cut and shaped into the traditional needle shape that is easy to puncture into skin to administer medicine or take out blood or other fluids. Not all titanium hypodermic tubing is made equally. There are several different customization options that medical customers can choose from to create customized needles that are ideal for each individual needle use. Continue reading

How Does the Hole Get Inside Hypodermic Needles?

Did you know that suppliers for hypodermic needles use a very special process to create the small, but strong needles? Each needle must contain a narrow, hollow center inside the needle for collecting blood or administering medication. The process of creating these tiny, hollow metal pieces made from stainless steel is quite interesting, and most companies will use a similar process to create their own needles. If you have ever wondered how hypodermic needles are created, look no further. Continue reading

The Mobile Car Wash and Water Conservation

Mobile car washes offer more than just a convenient way to have one’s vehicle washed; they also offer a greener alternative to stationary car washes by utilizing a waterless car wash technology that aids in water conservation. A mobile car wash is a way of cleaning one’s vehicle that typically caters to professionals or individuals that lead busy lifestyles by bringing the car wash to the vehicle instead of the other way around. The water preservation efforts that come as a result of mobile car washes are a welcome relief for areas such as California, Texas and many other areas that have been experiencing enough of a drought that they’ve had to begin water rationing.

Milling About: Stainless Steel Tubing

I think if we ever got to see a list of everything into which stainless steel is incorporated, and all of the products made from stainless steel it would be an overwhelming sight. That is because we rely so heavily on stainless steel for its durability, adaptability, style, and integrity. Stainless steel doesn’t just appear ready-made, however; there is a lot of work that goes on to make stainless steel as fabulous as it is. Continue reading

Stainless Steel and the Space Program

With the nature of the United States’ ambitions for space exploration changing, I wonder how much the number of lab experiments will increase. Granted, NASA has always done experiments in labs to determine how something might or might not work once it’s in space, but now that the Space Program as we knew it over the last half-century has changed, will NASA continue to conduct all manner of interesting experiments where recreating the conditions of space is the name of the game?

Rage of the Milling Machine

The stainless steel tube has become such a necessary tool in modern society that the thought of it no longer being available to us is almost terrifying. The range of contexts in which one type of stainless steel tube or another is depended upon is wider than you probably realize and the variety of things a manufacturer must consider is profuse. With over 150 grades of stainless steel, manufacturers must understand the various strengths that constitutes each one and how those attributes can best be utilized in the wide range of applications that use stainless steel tubing. For an example, stainless steel tubes intended for industrial purposes are very different than those used in medical or dental applications and so must be manufactured appropriately. The details of stainless steel tubing manufacturing not only vary in what grades are used, but also what processes and tools are employed. Some kinds of stainless steel tubes require secondary processes for strengthening or finishing purposes. Manufacturers must carefully consider the requirements of all of the applications and industries being served, for the purposes of safety and optimal efficiency. Continue reading

Knowing How to Make & Bake Stainless Steel Tubes Successfully

Manufacturing something as necessary and depended upon as stainless steel tubing can still be just as difficult as any other business— especially in today’s lousy economic state.

The Business of Stainless Steel Tube Manufacturing

When nurturing and maintaining a successful business, stainless steel tube manufacturers, like any manufacturer, have two separate but essential features to consider: the factory workers and the sales team; both must be given an equal amount of reflection and respect, because both are vital to how well any given manufacturer will do. As a lack of demand for stainless steel tubing is not going to happen any time soon—even despite a suffering economy—stainless steel tube manufacturers will maintain a level of relevancy in today’s modern society and so will will only have each other to compete against. A stainless steel tube manufacturer that provides a healthy, happy work environment for both its factory workers and sales team will, no doubt, be more successful than one that does not.

A Quick Shout Out to the Stainless Steel Tube

A stainless steel tube is, in many ways, a staple of modern society. This significance could be explained in two parts; the first of which would address the characteristics of stainless steel— the metal alloy we all know and love— while the second part would address the common hollow cylindrical form we call a tube. Both things are, in their own, separate rights, extremely important to our society’s ability to function as it does. But stainless steel without a purpose is merely a hunk of metal and a tube of a different material is not nearly as valuable, and so one must pause to consider just how important the stainless steel tube is.

Getting Tubular with Stainless Steel!

Today I have to go to the dentist. I hate going to the dentist. I dread going to the dentist. Just thinking about going to the dentist puts me in a black mood, rich with anxiety, fear and foreboding. Like most people, going to any sort of dental or medical office is not a particularly fun experience— nobody likes being the patient (not considering the few weirdos who do)— having to withstand being poked and prodded, lectured to about what you should and shouldn’t eat, scolded for not taking care of yourself and told matter-of-factly what is wrong with you and what needs to happen in order to fix such physical perversions— most of which consists of intrusive and painful procedures involving big, scary needles.

The Point of Syringes

The local blood bank called my parents’ home so often while I was growing up, it’s a wonder we didn’t eventually start having the whole staff over for holidays. My father, you see, is blessed (or cursed, you might say, depending on how you look at it) to have Type O blood running through his unassuming, immigrant veins, making him a very popular and well-sought after candidate for blood donation. Type O, remember, is the universal blood type, meaning it can be applied to most anyone, no matter their own type. And being the sort of man my father is, he could never bring himself to say no or to make up an excuse as to why he couldn’t “do it this time”; he always consented, he always went to the scheduled appointments on time and he always uncomplainingly offered up his arm to be poked and penetrated by a blood-sucking needle, oftentimes leaving him tired and weak.

Painless Tubing Is Stainless Tubing

I often wonder how the heck people survived back in the day without the help of things like cars, phones and amazon.com, let alone without basic electricity and modern plumbing. The notion of not having running water a mere hop, skip and jump away from me at all times (not counting my once-a-year camping trip) makes me fidget with fright and that’s not even considering the loads of more specific advancements we have made in, for example, irrigation, plumping, heating, and tubing systems in general.

The Skinny on SS Tubes

I was just given a stainless steel water bottle for Christmas and told to throw out my inferior pile of plastic and aluminum water bottles that I had grown accustomed to buying and using. In researching what the big fuss was over stainless steel, I came to understand that it had to do with the unique and desirable characteristics of stainless steel. Continue reading

New Businesses Benefit From Mezzanines

Mezzanines can improve the operating system in any work place, but are especially beneficial to a business that is just starting out. This is true for several reasons. The fact that mezzanines are non-permanent means that they can be moved and adjusted to suit different needs as you get comfortable in your new space. This is means they are also ideal for leased spaces. In some situations, alterations or expansions are not allowed in the lease agreement. So, if your company is growing rapidly and needs more space, a steel mezzanine could be an alternative to capitol investment. This is especially worth looking into if you will be relocating in the next few years. Continue reading
