ABOUT PREFERRED TUBES LTD
Preferred Tubes Ltd stock and distribute mild steel tubes, mainly welded. The staff and directors are very experienced in their chosen field, with an industry history going back to 1977. There are not many production situations that Preferred Tubes has not already come across and their advice in product development can be crucial.
Investment in the latest technology has always played an important part in our continued success and in 2005 Preferred Tubes bought a Trumpf Tubematic Laser machine capable of cutting tubes from 16mm OD up to 150mm OD and any derivative shape - square, rectangle, oval, flat oval or tunnel in mild steel, stainless or aluminium up to 3.2m in length - please see videos on the laser page.
In 2009 Preferred Tubes have installed the very latest tube laser machine the LT722D BLM Adige with the latest 'Artube' software and Rofin Laser Technology. This machine has all the capabilities of the Trumpf and can cut up to 3.5m in length. This latest expenditure gives our clients access to quick design changes and fast samples in their product development processes and boosts our capacity and we have the stock to hand in our 2 depots for a quick turnaround. We strive to support our manufacturing industry which is gaining a reputation for quality and durability.
Automatic saws abound in the cutting department and when combined with high stocks and reliable deliveries, it represents an important service to the manufacturing sector. Whether it is just straight cuts or angle cuts and washing and degreasing, Preferred has the machines to do it.
Preferred Tubes has done well by making sure its customers' production is kept well supplied with raw material and information – good communication plays an important part in business, but it is often neglected at crucial moments in a transaction - that is why we make certain that buyers and production staff are kept well informed.
