Fabricated Tubing

fabricated stainless steel tubing parts

From straightforward cut and deburred tubes to complex medical devices or industrial parts, Vita has the capabilities and services to fabricate parts to your specifications.

Some examples of our work include cardiac surgical instruments, components for military rifles, veterinary implants, fiberoptic sheaths and sampling needles installed on a space probe now on Mars. We can produce specialty fittings and EDM or CNC / hand machine parts quickly and to your specs. Tube forming, tube swaging, assembly, and special finishes are easily handled by Vita. Most of our work is with stainless/high nickel series, brass, aluminum and copper but we also work with other alloys.

Our millions of feet of many sizes of tubing gives us a unique advantage and our drawing and sizing capabilities allow us to form just a few feet or hundreds of thousands of feet. Vita Needle's equipment, technology, five family generations of experience and partnerships with other American family owned businesses allow us to offer complete manufacturing solutions. In short, our customers optimize value without having to worry about quality or delivery of their parts.
