Rotary Pipe Cutting

WaterJet CuttingUS Fittings, Inc. is dedicated to utilizing the most advanced technology in metal fabrication. We recently took delivery of a 5-axis rotary waterjet machine for high precision pipe cutting that will improve our productivity and reduce production lead-times. This machine allows us to contour up to 8″ OD tube and pipe or round bar stock for precise and consistent fit up. We can also cut plate materials in 2-dimension or 5-axis.

Waterjet cutting is an extremely versatile method of material cutting and does not put heat into the material like many other cutting methods.

Contact us today and let us know how we can put this unique equipment to work for you.

USF Welder

We Are Certified

Our customers can have confidence when purchasing quality butt weld fittings from USF that we certify our products with the documentation required to meet ASME Section IX requirements.

Steel Pipe Fittings

Custom Flanged Fitting for Automotive Assembly Plant

USF-blog-custom-flangged-fitting-automtiveAn automotive assembly plant in Northeast Ohio is installing a new adhesive distribution system for its chassis assembly line. The PVF distributor and plant engineer worked together to configure the system and they needed custom pipe fittings to meet this unique application. The team at United States Fittings (USFI) worked with the distributor to design two custom flanged fittings that significantly reduce field welding during scheduled plant shut-down.

Custom Flanged Fittings

The design (pictured above) required that the 2 ½” EXH 3R elbows be shaped to fit onto the adjoining pipe for a 90⁰ tee wye connection at the flanged outlet. The custom steel pipe fitting was manufactured according to the end users specifications within a short lead time.

Manufacturing Custom Fittings for Marine Applications

At United States Fittings (USFI) we truly enjoy being a manufacturer of custom pipe fittings. We are eager to serve PVF distributors throughout the United States by keeping our popular items in stock such as laterals, stub ends, tees, crosses, true wyes, p-traps and return bends.  In addition, working closely with the distributor to get the end-user a custom pipe fitting is particularly rewarding.

Custom Made – Multiple Angles & Sizes with Threading

custom made grey water distribution tree pipe fitting

Grey Water Distribution Tree

We recently worked with a leading northeast barge builder to manufacture a custom grey water distribution tree. This custom pipe fitting (pictured above) is fabricated using a 2 ½” Schedule 40 Carbon steel body with seven various branches of varying dimensions and also threaded on one end.  The branches range from 1 ¼” – 2” and are welded at four different angles.

Custom Finishing – HDG

Because this custom steel pipe fitting is to be used in a barge (marine application), the customer also required the fitting to be hot-dip galvanized (HDG), a process that provides superior corrosion protection, which USFI was happy to accommodate. This unique custom fitting was manufactured, finished and shipped with a short three week delivery time.
