Cutting Brass Rods
For all brass pipe fitting manufacturing process at Tubomart, it all starts from cutting brass rods. There, the brass rod is cold drawn to the finished size requested, cut into slugs with length to clients’ exact specifications.
Cutting brass rods is all about the correct diameter, we utilize various testing equipment into its production to verify that brass rod dimensions meet our standards.
Hot Press Forging
The slugs are then heated to forging temperature. To ensure a quality part, the forger must carefully control the slug temperature, as too cold a slug will not fill the die cavity completely whereas too hot a slug will result in a porous surface.
Hot press-forged brass fittings and valves have the following advantages compared to other manufacturing processes:
- Higher Strength
- Closer Tolerances
Milling machines are deployed to process edges, in which case is screw thread. This process is so important because screw threads used to connect pipes, fittings and valves.
Polishing brass is done by removing materials from the metal’s surface using wheels.
CNC machining offers excellent accuracy and repeatability, and can produce parts with very tight tolerances, making it ideal for high-end applications. Tubomart’s brass turned parts and components are durable, cost-efficient, and even create a tighter seal for fittings.
Assembling Parts & Quality Inspection
Tubomart provides assembled fittings and valves for our customers. We process products that include a combination of parts manufactured, parts supplied by our customers, and the parts we procured for our customers. Assemblies are processed by hand, ensuring each assembled unit is ready for use.
