Semi-calibrated tubes and profiles



Other products:

Moores Equipment manufactures various shapes of semi-calibrated tubes and profiles (see specifications hereunder) in most of types of glasses (borosilicate glasses, soda glass, lead glass and electronic glasses). They are used both in industrial and decorative applications. Custom made products are available starting from 10 meters. Available equipments also allows mass production of thousands of meters.

The semi-calibrated tube has a better accuracy than standard tubes on the outside or inside diameter, but is not as accurate as a calibrated tube (under vaccuum). The main advantage is the price as the precision of the calibrated tube is not required.


Aside the precision, another possibility is to produce small quantities of « non-standard » dimensions (diameters or wall thickness).

Profiles can be triangular, square, rectangular, hexagonal or oval.

Standard length is 1000mm but tubes and profiles can be supplied cut at any length from 5 to 1500mm.
