Now that our headrest tubing process has been refined, we’re expanding to different applications.

With our Hydraform technology, we can make anything out of tube at a length between 1.5ft and 6ft and up to 6 separate features. If you’re in need of tube processing, look no further!

Keep in mind that at Innotec:

  • We’re cost effective
  • We’re industry experts
  • We’re doing it like no one else does with our perfected Hydraform technology

Product Features

Cut to Length

  • Allow tube purchase in master length (6m)
  • Guillotine or laser cut
  • In line process of end form

Cold Formed Notches

  • A proprietary processes of creating the flats (notches) solely by forming material rather than removing the material by broaching.
  • The forming allows the primary strength of the tube to remain.
  • Current production products utilizing this process range in wall thickness from 2.3mm down to 1.0mm with OD’s of 12 to 14mm. Up to 50% weight savings.

Advanced Tubing Technology

About the technology

  • Fast – less than 5 seconds part to part
  • Flexible – easy change of tooling and program parameters accommodates quick changeovers and short lead time on prototype launches
  • Precise – laser cutting and cold form notching technology allow for many different part designs on the same piece of equipment
