1a.) New control technique guarantees maximum precision fluoropolymer tubing of even the smallest diameters.

A new method ensures that the tube dimensions are measured continuously with high precision throughout the manufacturing process, and documented.

1b.) 360° optical measurement of even the smallest diameter fluoropolymer tubing

This „in-line“ measuring technique provides permanent, real-time, 360 degree inspection and documentation. All kinds of impurities, inclusions and other defects are reliably detected.

These two monitoring techniques (1a. / 1b.) are carried out over the entire length of the tube during production. LABOMATIC thereby ensures compliance with the requirements over the full length of the tube. These procedures guarantee 100% verification of the manufactured fluoropolymer tubes and thus the highest quality standards. Using these two automated quality control techniques in this combination is currently unique worldwide.

2.) Specified, documented types of fluoropolymer raw material

LABOMATIC guarantees consistent quality, optimally adapted to your application. For each manufactured tubing sub-assembly, the raw material type and the manufacturer are documented.

The benefits:

  • The uniformity in manufacturing the tubing assemblies can be maintained.
  • The application’s specific conditions, for example mechanical properties like bending fatigue strength, can be maintained.
  • The properties as specified in the validation can be maintained.

3.) 20 years of 100% traceability

All relevant data of the individual components and the assemblies for which they are used are registered for 20 years.

4.) Examination of the raw materials and the tubes which are produced from these materials

The fluoropolymer raw materials and the tubes from which they are produced are regularly subjected to a series of test procedures. These tests detect any deviation from the raw material specifications or the optimal manufacturing processes at an early stage.

5.) Important developments in the raw materials market

As a responsible manufacturer of plastic tubing, LABOMATIC reacts to relevant developments in the raw materials market and informs its existing and prospective customers about them.

6.) Automated narrowing of fluoropolymer plastic tubing

Our new, automatic tube expansion and narrowing device enables us to narrow the diameter of a tube with highest precision at any location. It is thus possible to reduce the inner diameter (and thus the volume) of tubes according to specifications – and with high precision (the tolerance is only 0.01 mm / 0.004“).

7.) Anomaly of PTFE at room temperature

Within a certain temperature range, PTFE has the property to thermally expand abruptly in a non-linear way. This also sharply changes the inner diameter and volume of a PTFE tube.

8.) ESD (Electrostatic Discharge)

The series of ESD parts includes tubings, fittings, couplings and other products. The ESD component of a tube does not come into contact with the liquid and does not impair the transparency of the tube.

9.) PUR (Polyurethane) tubings and assemblies

PUR is a new alternative to PVC. PUR provides superior resistance to chemicals. In addition, flanges, for example, can be applied to such tubes. Our well-known method from our PVC series of dead volume free connections, which require no fittings and do not constrict inner diameters, can also be applied with PUR.
