Bespoke Tubing

Whatever your glass tubing needs Plowden & Thompson may just have the right solution for you at the right price with our ability to manufacture glass rod and tube in various sizes and glass types.

Using well honed techniques, our master glass makers have the experience to produce tubing, and glass rod, in different ways......

We can use a hand drawn technique where glass is drawn out manually accross the glass cone to make different diameter glass rod.
We have a dedicated 100 foot long glass making tunnel where, in conjunction with the use of two furnaces, different diameter tubing and rod can be produced in either long lengths or cut to size according to customers requirements.
We can re-draw exisiting tubing into smaller diameter tubes for specialist work.
We can precision re-draw capillary tubing down to diameters reaching 0.150mm.

Whether you require a single one off quantity produced or staggered deliveries we will be able to plan in the production to suit your time schedules.
