Shaped Tubing

Stop extensive machining to get the shape you want out of bars or rounds! Shaped tubing from Plymouth Tube can slash processing costs, lower scrap material and reduce your turn around time.  Plymouth offers both specialty shapes engineered per your specifications as well as standard shapes such as square, hex, triangle, and streamline. 

 

 

Shaped tubing is widely used by manufactures in automotive, aerospace, construction, drilling, medical equipment, and many other industries. OEMs and metal fabricators currently specify Plymouth Engineered Shapes for such diverse applications as:

  • Automotive shafts and steering columns
  • Tools and tool handles
  • Torque wrenches and wrench extensions
  • Telescoping components
  • Rebar and direct drilling couplers
  • Components for a wide assortment of industrial and medical equipment

 

Technical Solutions:

Plymouth cold drawn seamless near-net shaped tubing enables manufacturers to solve tough technical challenges and attain physical and mechanical properties that would be difficult to achieve with other methods, such as machining from bar.
