Hydraulic Cylinder Tubing


Drawn-Over Mandrel

Drawn-Over Mandrel (DOM) mechanical steel tubing is manufactured from Electrical Resistance Welded (ERW) hollow tubing, additional processing by cold drawing through dies and over a mandrel, resulting in smooth and clean surface finish, mechanical properties and OD & ID dimensional accuracy.


Cold Drawn Welded tubing features:

  • Uniform grain structure and controlled hardness
  • Uniform wall thickness with close OD and ID tolerances
  • OD / Wall combinations that are not possible with traditional ERW tubes. i.e.  low D/t (Outer diameter to wall thickness ratio)
  • Greater size range availability compared to ERW tubes
  • High tensile and yield strength
  • Excellent machining characteristics
  • Smooth and clean OD and ID surfaces

Applications & Sectors

Cold drawn welded and Cold drawn seamless tubing are commonly used in the following sectors / applications:

  • Hydraulic cylinders & Telescopics
  • Accumulators
  • Axles
  • Printing, textile and paper mills
  • Spacers & Bushings
  • Machined tubular parts
  • Down Hole – PCP Pumps (Progressing Cavity Pumps)
  • Steering Columns
  • Shock Absorbers
  • Drive Shafts
