Engineered Tubing Solutions

Lake Region is home to the most comprehensive supply chain solutions for precision tubing manufacturing and fabrication in the world. More than a supplier, we are a strategic partner. Our reach spans the entire globe with facilities in the US, Germany, Ireland, Malaysia, and Mexico. The core of our tubing solutions business is based in our Philadelphia and Chicago Area facilities in the US as well as our Aura, Germany facility. We offer fully integrated solutions to customers looking for services from design for manufacturability to finished production and supply chain management of precision tubing solutions.

Tube Drawing

Tube Drawing Capabilities
Lake Region produces both welded and drawn and seamless tubing. Depending on the type of tubing, sizes range from 1.250 inch/31mm OD down to 0.007 inch/0.178mm OD. Welded and drawn tubing can be laser welded with no filler metal and drawn in straight lengths or in coils to a custom, finished size. Drawing is performed in a series of drawing and annealing cycles designed to fully homogenize the weld bead. The resultant fully finished tube has a weld bead that is difficult to detect with mechanical properties equal to that of the parent metal. Lake Region also has the capability to produce a TIG welded and drawn tube which utilizes a filler material in the welding process.

Seamless tubing is purchased in hollow form and drawn to a finished size in either straight lengths or coils. Drawing of all tubing is performed to produce a finished product with a microstructure free of detrimental phases. Depending on the application there is a unique, value maximizing solution that can be created from our tubing capabilities. We currently have a significant presence in the medical, aerospace, and other high end industrial markets, providing components for numerous applications around the world.
