Custom Tubing for Metal Detector Company


Metal detector support shafts. Variable length. 

Previous Limiting Technology

Extruded aluminum.


Non-cylindrical, ergonomic-shaped tubing in 3 lengths that telescopes inside one another for an expandable, variable combination of total lengths. Perfect cosmetics required right out of the mold. Precision machined for locking mechanisms.


We used sheets of carbon fiber pre-preg wrapped onto a semi-rigid heat expandable mandrel (PTFE). This was placed inside rigid aluminum clamshell mold during cure to create a tight tolerance ID / OD tube for precision fitment, allowing each tube to slide inside the other freely but precisely. It also provided excellent cosmetics. Ceramic coating was applied for enhance durability.
