UK-based Fine Tubes and US-based Superior Tube are leading global manufacturers of precision tubing and have continuously proven their excellence in engineering and metallurgy.

We manufacture high precision metal tubes in a wide range of titanium, stainless steel and nickel for different critical applications in the aerospace industry, including:

• Hydraulic and pneumatic control systems

• Landing gear

• Instrumentation

• Transmission tubes

• Convoluting / seals

These high-performance tubes are manufactured as seamless, welded or welded and drawn in a whole range of grades and sizes. While our welded, welded and drawn tube size range goes up to 38.1 mm (1 1/2") OD, our seamless tube size range starts at less than 1mm (0.04") and goes up to 45mm (1 5/8") OD.

Offering over 70 years of experience in supplying high performance tubing to the aviation industry, both businesses help major aerospace companies worldwide to solve technical challenges. Customer approvals include Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer, GE, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce and Groupe Safran.

Fine Tubes along with Superior Tube are part of the AMETEK Specialty Metal Products division, together with AMETEK Wallingford, Hamilton Precision Metals, AMETEK Eighty-Four and Reading Alloys. Collectively, they represent a world-leading force not just in precision tubing but also in precision strip, wire and foil, metal powders and clad metals.
