Precision Steel Tube Manufacturing: Your Metal Reel Solution
What is a precision steel tube?
The precision pipe is a carbon, alloy, or stainless steel pipe with high precision sizes. Usually, it has been made through hot rolling or cold drawn (cold rolling) processes. So the precision pipe is a kind of seamless pipe.
Precision steel tube is used in the construction of large buildings, bridges and other large structures. Therefore, the quality of the steel must be high and stable to ensure its safety and durability.
Precision steel tube has many specifications, including wall thickness, inner diameter (ID), outer diameter (OD), length, weight and so on. Each specification has a certain tolerance range. The standard tolerance range of wall thickness is 0.1mm-0.3mm; OD tolerance: ±0.03mm; ID tolerance: ±0.025mm; Length tolerance: +2%, -3%.
The most common types of precision steel tubes are seamless precision pipes and seamless precision tubes for building structure projects, such as skyscrapers, bridges or tunnels; Other types include seamless precision pipes for mechanical equipment manufacturing projects such as turbines and compressors; Seamless precision pipes for transportation equipment manufacturing projects such as aircraft engines;
SSAB offers a wide range of precision steel tubes that can be used in many different applications. From small diameter tubes to large diameter, we have the right material for your needs. Whether you're looking for weight savings, corrosion resistance, narrow tolerances or low processing costs, SSAB provides a wide range of precision steel tubes to fit your needs.
We promise you the market's most versatile precision tubes to make your products exceed your customer’s expectations.
The strength of our precision tubing ranges from E190 up to DP980. This range enables you to find the best steel grade and type for your purposes. You can select extremely formable, high-strength formable or an ultra-high-strength option for your application. And if you need tight tolerances and high surface quality in combination with extreme bendability, our SSAB Form Tube Plus is your choice. All our steels are modern, environmentally friendly and developed especially for tubing.
Our products have excellent weldability and formability properties as well as good corrosion resistance properties in many different environments (see table below). We also offer a full range of heat treatment processes (normalised and tempering) to enhance these properties even further if needed
