FAQ’S – LOCAL DIVISION
Lead time is dependent on different factors, including how many projects are in waiting to be machined on our in-house draw benches, the availability of steel tube also known as mother tube, and circumstances beyond our control.
TBM – To Be Manufactured
This is all dependant on the input material used but generally;
- 12.144m – Standard sizes
- 10.4m – Non Standard sizes
Why do we get various lengths in end product on manufactured tubing (steel tube ends up being over 6m in length)
Elongation is a naturally occurring process and is due to machining the standard mother tube to non-standard sizes. The wall size is not compromised in this process, however when the diameter is reduced, the steel pipe will automatically elongate.
(Have a look at our blog for more information on this process)
