Seamless mechanical tubing as the name suggests is seamless. There is no weld in the tube making it more sturdy and reliable. To make this type of tube a solid steel bar is used using a die that bores out the center of the tube.
Also, there are usually two types of seamless mechanical tubing, cold drawn seamless (CDC) and hot finish seamless (HFS). The cold drawn seamless has a better surface finish in addition to high strength and weight ratio. The hot finish seamless is more cost-effective and a wider range of sizes.
Our mechanical tubing is designed to last in a demanding application. Also, this type of tubing can be found in the automotive industry in gears and cylinders. When it comes to special diameters make sure to contact us on the large variety of diameters we offer.
“Mechanical tubing is generally used for light gauge and mechanical structural application. So examples, where the tubing is used, are solar racking, carports, appliances, greenhouse structures, canopies, and many other areas. The tubing is available in square, round, rectangle, or even custom shapes if needed. ” – Read More
