Fine Tubes supplies the civil aviation, military and space sectors with high performance tubes used in airframe and engine applications

Aerospace

Fine Tubes has built a reputation for first class product quality and reliability, and that’s why so many leading military and commercial aviation programs use our high performance tubes. We’re one of the few suppliers qualified to produce the high pressure titanium tubes used in the hydraulic systems of the Airbus A380 and A350.

Our aerospace tubes are generally used in airframes, aircraft engines and instrumentation, where pilot and passengers equally rely on them to withstand the most critical conditions.

Aerospace engineers turn to Fine Tubes for advice when they require high pressure and high temperature resistant tubes that are strong and light. Currently, our experts are developing products using the latest high-strength grades of titanium for hydraulic tubing systems, and are also designing new solutions in Titanium for mechanical tubes used in flight surface actuation such as wings, flaps and slats.

Having supplied the aerospace industry with high performance tubes for over 50 years, our team has a proven history in turning the design concepts of today into the industry standards of tomorrow.
