Tubular Fabrication

Tube Types

No matter what type of metal tube you require, we can provide the tubular fabrication for your components: bent tubing, tubular frames, rectangular tubing, perforated metal tubes, beaded tubing, (s)traight cut tubing, mitered cut tubing.

Many fabricated metal assemblies and especially POP displays require tubing. AMF can assist you with any type of tubular components. We offer tubular fabrication in a variety of metal materials: aluminum, stainless steel, copper, brass, and pre-coated metals.

Tube Talent

Accurate Metal Fabricating has the talent and equipment to handle your most complex tubing components. Our laser cutter is a precise and powerful 3500 W Mitsubishi CNC Laser System. AMF’s multiple Amada and Accurpress press brakes provide our customers high-quality, precision forming for tubing. And our CNC Accurpress press breaks offer solutions to bend materials with lengths up to 6 feet.

With this equipment and our expertise we can:

  • Laser cut details on square or rectangular tubes
  • Provide you with straight or mitered cut tubular assemblies
  • Perforate tubes
  • Incorporate threaded hardware into tubing components
  • Incorporate tubing into welded assemblies

PEM® Insertion

Accurate Metal Fabricating can integrate specialized PEM® brand fasteners into your design projects. PEM® Insertion yields strong, permanent, threaded fasteners and mounting points for PC boards, electronic enclosures, brackets, shield covers and other accessories. A PEM® nut is an internal fastener that as an assembly alternative provides strong, load bearing threads to thin sheet metal as well as to non-malleable materials.

PEM® insertion:

  • Is easy to integrate
  • Is relatively inexpensive
  • Can clinch sheets as thin as .016 in./0.4 mm
  • Can attach sheets as thin as .008 in./0.2 mm
  • Gives strength to your assembly
  • We can utilize surface mount, weld technology and presses to insert this specialized hardware on your design projects.

Riveting – Tubular and Pop

More Options

Joining metal components isn’t always a simple matter with a single method. But Accurate Metal Fabricating always has solutions. AMF can install pop riveting and tubular riveting to join components where the welding process can’t be applied. Our team of experts can determine if riveting is a viable method for your project. And we can advise you of all the best alternatives to enhance assembly for your design.

Our team of engineers can make a joint analysis and determine if the installed load requires a tension or shear load for your project. We can help you determine whether bolts, welding, or riveting is your best choice for joining components. We have capabilities for any option and can help you determine what best suits your project needs.

Some of the benefits of riveting:

  • It can be just as strong as welding
  • Establishes a very tight fit (not always possible with other fasteners)
  • Ease of installation
  • It can join multiple materials: steel, aluminum, plastics, composites, fabric, and pre-painted materials.
  • Can reduce your costs

More Savings

Sometimes welding can be applied, but riveting is the best choice because it saves money. See our case study for how we gave one client substantial savings by substituting riveting for welding. We offer first article inspection to ensure the quality of your component at the best price for you before we undertake the final production run. We have eight decades of experience, state-of-the-art equipment, and the capabilities to offer you more options for your design assembly.
