K-Tube is the largest producer of miniature stainless steel tubing in the United States and the only manufacturer to offer stock and custom tubing direct from the source. That means, we handle every step in the manufacturing process—from choosing the raw materials and laser-welding the tubing, to cutting, finishing, and delivering exactly the tubing you need.
All your tubing needs from a single source.
Exploring the materials, processes, and finishes that might work for your product can get complicated. That’s why we’ve created 3 ways to interact with K-Tube. Each way works a little differently, but they all make sure that you’re getting the best service and tubing that will meet your project’s needs. We can help with idea development, quality assurance, manufacturing, and delivery.
The majority of our capacity is dedicated to medical manufacturing, and our quality systems and internal processes are all designed to exceed compliance and traceability demands. Every day, our stainless steel tubing is used in devices and tools that help patients.
K-Tube has a long history of supplying tubing for industrial applications. From condenser coils in air conditioning units to heat exchangers in Indy Cars, a lot of people and businesses count on K-Tube’s miniature stainless steel tubing to keep things running.

This protection helped allow the fiber optics to be run in continuous lengths for long distances, replacing heavy copper wire as the standard in the telecommunication industry.
