Seamless Tubes


Seamless Tubes

Our seamless tubes are produced from seamless tube extensions and reduced in size until they steadily match the requirements needed for specific applications.

We manufacture seamless tubes in stainless steel, nickel alloy and titanium with outside diameters from 0.25 mm (0.010 in) up to 50 mm (2 in).

Welded Tubes


 Welded Tubes

Our welded tubes start the process as flat strips of metal and are transformed into a tube through a process of rollers, before the seam is welded together.

We use a range of eddy current and ultrasonic testing methods to gauge a consistent weld and tubes can be drawn down by sinking or plug drawing.
