SERVICE STEEL OFFERS THE MECHANICAL AND STRUCTURAL TUBING SHAPES THAT YOU NEED

Mechanical and structural tube have a lot in common. Both types can be square, round, or rectangular. Both mechanical and structural tube are measured by inside dimensions (I.D.), outside dimensions (O.D.), and gauge (wall thickness). Both can be made of stainless steel, carbon steel, galvanized steel, or other steel alloys … as long as the material is strong enough to stand up to stressful structural use. Both types can generally be fabricated after production including cutting, punching, stamping, welding, and other secondary services.

Mechanical Tubing

Mechanical tubing is produced to strict tolerances and specifications and requires much more precision than structural tubing. Mechanical tubing can be seamless or have welded seams. Seamless mechanical tubing can help avoid weak points in the component. Because seamless tubing isn’t subjected to welding, it is more resistant to corrosion.

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, and Food Service Parts
  • Hospital Beds and Medical Equipment
  • Canopies and Other Recreational Stands
  • Home & Garden Tools

STRUCTURAL TUBING

Due to its use in construction and high impact environments, structural tubing needs to be strong and durable. Tight tolerances and appearance are secondary to strength. Structural tube is often called HSS, or hollow structural sections. Structural tubing is used in more high-stress, long-term, corrosive structural applications including:

  • Infrastructure (roads, bridges, buildings, etc.)
  • Construction and Construction Equipment
  • Sign Supports
  • Drilling and Underwater Platforms
  • Roll Cages
