How It's Made
Thermoplastic Tubing

Tubing from NewAge Industries made of PVC, polyurethane or TPR is extruded, that is, formed into a specific shape by being forced through a die.

The process starts with resin pellets — small pieces of plastic — that are suctioned from a storage or feeder bin into a hopper. The pellets are fed into the extruder where a screw housed inside a heated barrel melts the resin and then forces the molten plastic through a combination die and pin setup. This gives the material its tubular shape.

Next the tubing travels through a cooling bath of recirculating water to set the tubing's shape. A computerized laser monitoring system checks the tubing for dimensional accuracy.

At the end of the production line, the finished tubing is typically wound on a coiler, a piece of equipment that winds the tubing into manageable coils or onto spools. Alternatively, tubing can be cut into specified lengths at the end of the line. This accomplishes two things: the customer receives their order in the exact length needed for their application, and the tubing will not have a coil set or curve.
