Carbon Mechanical Tubing In Buffalo

Structural and carbon mechanical tubing have a lot in common at first glance.

What makes steel tubing mechanical or structural? The difference between the two types of tubing shows most clearly in their properties and their applications. Here’s how manufacturers classify these two types of tubing based on their end use.

TOLERANCE & SPECIFICATIONS

Mechanical Tubing is produced to strict tolerances and specifications (ASTM A513). Mechanical tubing requires much more precision than the structural stuff — its chemistry, measurements, and requirements are strictly laid out and adhered to, since its applications tend to be more sensitive than holding up a building. Seamless mechanical tubing can help avoid weak points in the component. Seamless tubes aren’t subjected to welding and therefore aren’t extra-prone to corrosion and such. Structural Tubing has looser requirements (ASTM A500). As its end uses are purely structural, this type of tubing needs to be strong and durable above all else. Tight tolerances and appearance are less important. Structural tube is often called HSS, or hollow structural sections.

FABRICATION

Both mechanical & structural tubing can be fabricated after production. This can include cutting, drilling, punching, bending, stamping, welding, and other secondary services.

SHAPES

Both mechanical & structural tubing can be shaped as rounds, squares, and rectangles. Additionally, mechanical tubing can be found in a variety of other shapes).

MEASUREMENT

Both mechanical and structural tubing are measured by inside dimensions (I.D.)outside dimensions (O.D.), and gauge (wall thickness).

COMPOSITION

Both mechanical & structural tubing can be made of: Carbon steel, Stainless steel, Galvanized steel and Other steel alloys… as long as the material is strong enough to stand up to stressful structural use.

APPLICATIONS

The main difference between mechanical and structural tubular steel products is how they’re used.

Mechanical tubing is used in a variety of applications that require specific measurements, as well as in very low-stress structural applications.

Mechanical tubing is most often used in machinery and tools for all industries, from automotive to agriculture. Other common uses for mechanical tubing include:

  • Solar Panel Supports
  • Conveyor Belt Components
  • Industrial Machinery
  • Playground Equipment
  • Greenhouse Structures
  • Restaurant, Kitchen, & Food Service Parts
  • Hospital Beds & Medical Equipment
  • Canopies and Other Recreational Stands
  • Home & Garden Tools

 

CARBON MECHANICAL TUBING

Structural tubing is used in more high-stress, long-term, corrosive structural applications, such as:

  • Infrastructure (Roads, Bridges, Buildings)
  • Construction & Construction Equipment
  • Sign Supports
  • Drilling & Underwater Platforms
  • Roll Cages
