Cold Drawn Precision Tubes

Cold drawn precision tubes are created by a metalworking process known as drawing. In the drawing process, a piece of tube is pulled through a metal die designed to reduce the diameter and increase the length of the tube and may also improve the surface finish of the tube. When the tube is drawn at close to room temperature it is cold drawn. Because the part does not need to undergo the cooling and contraction associated with a heated process, the resulting cold drawn tube has precision dimensions.
