Accu-Tube Announces Partnership with Chamfr
Partnership supports company’s medical device growth initiative
Englewood, Colo. (January 31, 2019) — Accu-Tube, a world leader in high-quality stainless steel tubing, announced today that it will offer its off-the-shelf stock tubing online through Chamfr Marketplace. This new way of purchasing Accu-Tube’s tubing provides design engineers with rapid delivery, helping to shorten the overall time it takes to build a medical device.
The company will offer its precision 17-7, 304, 304L, 316, 316L and 321 stainless steel tubing on the marketplace. All tubing available for purchase online are in-stock and ship within 24 hours. Compared with 304 stainless steel, 17-7 has similar corrosion resistance, but in a similar cold-worked condition it has increased strength and better machinability making it a great fit for many minimally invasive medical applications.
“Over the past 6 months, Accu-Tube has been focused on growth and improvements to better serve customers,” said Kevin McGrath, CEO at Accu-Tube “This new channel allows our customers instant access to the components they need for their medical devices.”
“Connecting engineers with medical component manufacturers at their point of need in the most efficient way possible is Chamfr’s mission,” stated Julie Schulte, Chamfr CEO. “We believe this further enables our industry to build more medical devices that save and enhance lives, faster.”
