Seamless Mechanical Tubing

Seamless Mechanical Tubing

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. In addition, we carry a variety of mechanical tubing sizes.  No matter what size tubing you need we have it for you. 

Availability of Seamless Mechanical Tubing

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

Benefits And Uses Of Mechanical Tubing

Mechanical Tubing

There are many benefits to using mechanical tubing. One great benefit is the uniformity of the tube. A mechanical tube has uniform concentricity and wall thickness and also uniform mechanical properties. In addition to uniformity, strength is another great benefit.  The cold-forming process gives the tube a higher tensile strength and yield than other tubes. 

There other benefits of mechanical tubing such as cost, wide size range, a variety of shapes, and less processing. This type of tubing is usually made from a cold-rolled coil. Now do not confuse pipe with tubing, because there is a difference. Tubing is usually used for structural type applications, such as a bike frame. Where pipe is usually used for the transportation of liquids or gasses.

Industrial Round Mechanical Tubing

Industrial Round Mechanical Tubing

Industrial Round Mechanical Tubing can be made from a variety of metals. Mechanical tubing can be made from carbon steel, alloy steel, and round carbon steel tubing. One of the first types of mechanical tubing is made from carbon steel and known as cold drawn seamless. The cold drawn seamless has an increased strength and tolerance over hot rolled tunes. Also, cold drawn seamless offers enhanced machinability.

The next type of industrial round mechanical tubing is the hot finished seamless. One advantage it has over cold drawn is it is usually cheaper. Also, hot finished seamless is usually used for applications that require high strength and thicker walled tubes. Drawn-Over-Mandrel (DOM) tubing is another tubing option.  A DOM tube is a tube that is cold drawn electric resistant tube that is welded with all of the flash removed. In addition, DOM tubing is cost effective and available in a wide array of sizes.

Industrial Round Mechanical Tubing Alloy Steel

4130 Chrome-Moly is a type of steel can be used to create race car roll cages or bicycle frames.  It can be welded easily and considered to be stronger than other lesser steels. This type of steel is generally used in the aviation industry among others. Another type of round mechanical tubing is the continuous buttweld. These tubes are usually used for air lines, gas lines, and steam. The continuous buttweld is not meant for high pressure, bending, or coiling.

There is a large variety of tubes to choose from depending on the task at hand. Good thing that the experts at Detroit Nipple Works are always here to help you find the right tubing that you need to get the job done.
