Microgroup - Hypotube experts

Quality, Medical Device

Speed 4 / Price 4 / Quality 5

We have used Microgroup hypotube on various projects for medical devices and have been pleased so far of the raw material and quality of work that they have been able to provide. Their tolerances are tight and their raw material is pure. We have had no issues inspecting their products on our assembly line. Their shipments are very quick and they are willing to work with you when you are in a bind. Their customer service staff is friendly and easy to work with. Their engineers are very knowledgeable and willing to spend time with you to get questions answered. Their pricing is standard but the quality of the work makes every penny worth it. I have no problem recommending them as a vendor to other companies and will continue to use them for years to come.

Strengths: hypotube, custom sizes, customer service, machining

Needs to improve: none that i can think of

Hypotube Supplier

Manufacturing, Medical Device

Speed 2 / Price 3 / Quality 4

microgroups lead time for stock hypotube is excellent and perfect for the prototyping stage. they carry a wide selection and offer them at reasonable prices. their custom tubing has taken up to 6 weeks to be delivered, which can interfere with production if any shipping issues arise. in general, their parts are delivered within specification and by the promised date. you just need to plan ahead for custom parts.

Strengths: hypotubes, both custom and stock

Needs to improve: lead time for custom tubing can be up to 6 weeks, not ideal for just in time manufacturing

Hypotube Supply

Purchasing, Medical Device

Speed 1 / Price 3 / Quality 5

They carry a large selection of tubing and sell them at great prices. However, the problem is with their custom work. They have a tendency to take a long time to produce a product to delivery which can be a problem when people are running on tight deadline. The final product is delivered on par with your expectations; it will just take a while for it to get here.

Strengths: custom and stock tubes

Needs to improve: long time for manufacturing custom tubing

Quality Hypotube

Manufacturing, Military / Law Enforcement

Speed 4 / Price 4 / Quality 4

I have purchased a large amount of hypotube both in precision cut lengths and random lengths over my career. Shipment is generally very fast for random lengths, and reasonable for specific cut lengths. I have ordered some custom, non-round tubing and while that project didn't pan out, MicroGroup delivered their parts to the spec on time.

Strengths: Hypotube supply and machining services

Needs to improve: leadtimes for custom tubing can be 4-6 weeks (which can seem like forever)

We go to Microgroup for our hypo tube needs. In-stcok sizes are shipped quickly and the quality is very good. Customer service is very helpful and knows their product line quite well.

Satisfactory machining for tub component

Finance/Accounting, Medical Device

Speed 1 / Price 3 / Quality 5

My company contracts Microgroup to manufacture stainless steel tubing to use in medical device equipment application containing wiring. This is a medical device that requires high calibration and the steel tubing network machined needed an extremely small OD and wall thickness. Microgroup made tubes of high quality and workmanship that was ideal for our product. Their team was knowledgeable and responsive to questions. Though the product delivery time lagged a bit toward the end. Overall we were decently satisfied.

Strengths: Tubing, custom specs

Needs to improve: product delivery experienced some lag times

Our company sourced customized metal components from MicroGroup and we were not disappointed. Our needs were very specific and MicroGroup was able to custom-engineer according to our specs and modifications. Their customer service team went above and beyond and the support we received at every stage of development was very helpful and evident in the final fabricated product. Partnering with MicroGroup for future projects is a no-brainer. Positive experience resulting in a great end-product with this vendor.

Speed 2 / Price 3 / Quality 4

I thought they were reasonable with the pricing and different options for different services you can chose from. however they lack a process which would allow you to order parts and receive them quickly.

Strengths: They have a variety of services and options you can chose from.
