Rock West Composites, a West Jordan-based provider of composite products for a variety of industries, has added a Build Your Own Tube feature to its website. The tool allows Rock West’s customers to define specific attributes they need for their custom composite tubing, provides a range of pricing based on the volume of the order and then allows for immediate check out. “It is fast and easy for customers who know exactly what they need but can’t find an off-the-shelf solution,” the company said.
“Our customers have asked for the ability to get fast pricing for custom work and easy checkout via our website, and this is answering that request,” said Dave Erickson, general manager of the Utah manufacturing facility. “E-commerce innovation is how we grow our business and help our customers succeed.”
With the new tool the customers can define the interior diameter, wall thickness, tube length, material, and key performance characteristic of their custom tube order. Current materials available include intermediate modulus carbon fiber and fiberglass (E-glass). Performance characteristics include bending stiffness, torque and internal pressure. Tubes are manufactured using the filament winding process. Checkout is processed as soon as the customer is ready, and shipping is handled separately. In addition to the 450 base options currently available, tubes can be customized even further by specifying almost any wall thickness. Rock West has plans to further expand the selection.
Specializing in carbon fiber composites, Rock West offers in-stock products, including tubes, plates and complementary composite materials, as well as custom products and solutions, such as product development, engineering services, prototyping and manufacturing. Manufacturing processes include filament winding, roll wrap, resin infusion, bladder molding and modified closed mold processes.

While many of the current diagnostic tests for pediatric cancer are derived from methods used in adult patients, NuView Life Sciences of Park City is introducing a cancer test for children they call NV-VPAC1. The new procedure uses a shed cell assay originally developed by Drs. Madhukar Thakur and Leonard Gomella at Thomas Jefferson University. NuView’s technology could benefit kids tremendously. If a child has suspected kidney cancer, for example, doctors would only need a voided urine specimen to test for the presence of shed cancer cells. “When our clinical trials resume post-COVID-19, we hope to show that our proprietary technology actually helps make cancer diagnosis easier, detected earlier and lead to more precise treatments that are individualized for younger patients,” said Paul Crowe, CEO of NuView Life Sciences.
