Addressing Your Glass Tubing Needs Better

Posted on August 26, 2013

Raw Glass RodsAccu-Glass (AG) has filled a unique service void in the precision glass tubing market for over 50 years. In addition to producing glass capillary tubes to your specifications, the proprietary glass forming technology allows us to efficiently produce orders ranging from as little as 5 pounds up to thousands of pounds. Accu-Glass can accommodate most volume requirements with a standard lead time of only 6 weeks. By contrast, a typical glass tank operation requires a high minimum order volume (typically well over 5,000 pounds) and long lead times (3 months or more).

In addition to our specialized glass forming process, we also use an in-house machine shop to fabricate tooling for various tubing ratios and geometric cross sections. In order to meet your specific requirements, we also design and fabricate our own production equipment. Examples include cutting equipment, thermal forming machines, and material handling machines for automated inspection.

Beyond process and production capabilities, AG partners with you to schedule multiple shipments against a single Purchase Order over a specified period of time. The goal is to allow greater inventory management flexibility to you after delivery, and to us during production. In some cases, we have implemented order-specific inventory management practices to better serve our customers.  We are always striving to establish a collaborative relationship with you and make it easier for you to conduct business with AG.

Accu-Glass also partners with you to meet your specific packaging requirements. This may include a variety of methods such as vials, anti-static bags, vacuum sealed bags, and thermo formed trays that eliminate part-to-part contact or can be used in automated assembly. Packaging materials suitable for sterilization requirements can also be used.

We are proud of our long established history of providing precision glass tubing solutions to medical, electronic, fiber optic, and industrial market segments. Contact us today to find out how our team can help you solve your precision glass tubing needs.
