Patented Rolled Tube Technology

MICRO develops patented technique to manufacture a “rolled” tube in a progressive die.



A leading medical device manufacturer approached MICRO to develop a cost-effective, disposable surgical device to be used in minimally invasive surgeries. MICRO engineered and patented a revolutionary process to manufacture a “rolled” tube in a progressive die that replaced traditional drawn tubing.

MICRO’s innovative process achieved the following benefits:

  • Component costs were reduced.
  • Costly secondary operations to create critical features are now done in-die.
  • Production time was reduced: A finished tube can now be stamped in one second.
  • Sub-assembly costs were cut by a factor of 4X.

Utilizing our patented “rolled” tube technology, we currently produce nearly half a million of these sub-assemblies annually in our ISO Class 8 cleanroom.
