Market Segment: General

Many different industrial areas benefit from using Winkelmann’s flow-formed high-precision tubes and rotation-symmentrical components in many different industrial areas. General engineering and plant constructions; pressure, medical and pump technologies; and hydraulic and pneumatic cyliders are a few examples of the many industries we serve. On request we will produce as little as 1 piece or several hundred thousand pieces annually.

Housings

Cylindrical, conical or in combination, housings of stainless steel, Inconel, aluminium or other metals can be produced seamlessly from sheet metal or forged parts by way of flow-forming. Frequently, functional areas and flanges are integrated and thus reduce otherwise necessary production processes. Cans for vacuum pumps, filter pots, vessels for medical technology and pressure containers of all kinds are just a few examples of this.

High-precision tubes

High-precision tubes with extremely thin walls of 0.04-0.2 inch, also referred to as sleeves, with wall thicknesses in the area of 0.004 -0.04 inch, are used in many different areas of industry. A wide selection of usable materials, such as Inconel, stainless steel, nickel, aluminium, copper, niobium, tantalum, titanium therefore offer best solutions for your application. Examples are cylinder tubes for hydraulics and pneumatics cylinders, cooling rollers for the steel industry, pipes for deep drilling technology, rollers for the pressure, textile and film industry, high-precision tubes for magnetic resonance imaging. Flow-formed thin-walled sleeves are used, as belts in motor technology or carrier tubes for carbon-fibre-coiled cylinders and pressure containers. Surface qualities up to Ra = 3.937e-5 inch and diameter tolerances in the range of H7 can be reached. In conventional steels/stainless steels, cold hardening allows generation of a tension resilience of up to 1600 N/mm² with concurrently good elongation.
