Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do tube expanding machines do?
A: Our tube expanding machines can stretch and expand soft and hard plastics as well as rubber tubing material. They help you by actually expanding non-metal tubing so that Tube "A" can fit over fitting "B". The inside of the tube is actually stretched so that it approximates twice its original diameter. The size of the tube itself actually increases so that a fitting can be inserted properly.

A: Yes. Our expanders are adjustable. Jaw expansion is adjustable on many available models. If there is a need that requires custom manufacturing, we can provide a solution for you as well.
