  • Customization Options for Hypodermic Needles

    Titanium hypodermic tubing is thin, hollow rods formed by machines to create thin, narrow rods that are cut and shaped into the traditional needle shape that is easy to puncture into skin to administer medicine or take out blood or other fluids. Not all titanium hypodermic tubing is made equally. There are several different customization options that medical customers can choose from to create customized needles that are ideal for each individual needle use. Material: Titanium needles are stronger than steel needles. Hypodermic needles can be made from titanium, 316L...

  • Safe Disposal of Medical Needles

    Hypodermic needles are important in the medical industry. These needles are used for blood transfusions, blood samples, shots, medicine, and to establish IV drips. Without hypodermic needles, the medical industry would have a much harder time performing simple and complex medical procedures. Titanium hypodermic needles provide extra strength to pierce tough skin and to prevent breakage while under the skin. Just like any other kind of hypodermic needle, the safe disposal of needles is extremely important to prevent cross-contamination and other medical problems in the hospital industry. Different counties and...

  • The Point of Syringes

    The local blood bank called my parents' home so often while I was growing up, it's a wonder we didn't eventually start having the whole staff over for holidays. My father, you see, is blessed (or cursed, you might say, depending on how you look at it) to have Type O blood running through his unassuming, immigrant veins, making him a very popular and well-sought after candidate for blood donation. Type O, remember, is the universal blood type, meaning it can be applied to most anyone, no matter their own...

  • Staying Safe with Hypodermic Needles

    Being a child of a couple hippies who have certain cynical, suspicious and sometimes paranoid opinions of conventional modern medicine, I did not go to the doctor or hospital very often when growing up, my parents preferring a wait and see line of thinking when an illness or injury occurred. Luckily, I never experienced anything worse than a cut or a cold, but I often wonder how much time a serious disease would have had to metastasis before my parents got over their pretensions and brought me to a fully-licenced...

Hypodermic Needles

Hypodermic needles are hollow, cylindrical tubing used as equipment components or as a medium through which fluids pass. Hypodermic needles are usually made from stainless steel tubing. These needles are classified by their outer diameter and wall thickness, also known as the gauge size.

A hypodermic needle is a type of needle commonly used with a syringe to inject substances or take substances from the body, as well as the rapid delivery of liquids in both medical and non-medical applications. Most hypodermic needles are designed for single use because they are hard to decontaminate and need sharpening after repeated use. Some of the wide-ranging applications for hypodermic needle tubing are found in industries such as dental, automotive, petrochemical, and semiconductor industries. In addition, hypodermic needle tubing is used in applications ranging from medical instruments and dental implants to hydraulic systems, fuel lines, and engine conduits. In the industrial manufacturing industry, hypodermic needles are most commonly utilized in the application of precise amounts of various types of liquids and pastes including lubricants and adhesives.

Hypodermic needle tubing is constructed through welding or seamless tubing procedures. Welding involves roll forming stainless steel and connecting the formed portions along a seam through fusion. Seamless tubing, in comparison, involves the creation of stainless steel tubing by piercing a round blank. Welding achieves a higher degree of precision without secondary operations, although the degree of precision required depends on the particular industrial application. Metal spinning is a "cold worked" metal fabrication technique which is similar to a potter forming clay, except that a metal spinner uses a flat round disc of sheet metal which is rotating on a spinning lathe. The metal spinning process is limited, however, to the making of concentric shapes such as tubes. From these stainless steel tubes, a process known as tube drawing is performed. Tube drawing is a metalworking process that is used in order to size the stainless steel tube by shrinking a large diameter tube into a smaller one, and then drawing the tube through a die. This process is used in the production of hypodermic tubing because it provides high quality with precise dimensions, good surface finish, and the additional strength provided by cold working.
