We produce seamless mechanical steel pipes, in the hot-rolled condition, close to your finished part size, which makes it very competitive compared to other forging or machining processes. You may also purchase tubes in sizes recommended to clean up at finished part dimensions, which allows for optimum material utilization. Our size range ranks among industry leaders, from 1″-24″ .
Tatrus stocks a huge selection of ASTM standard seamless mechanical steel tube, with sizes and styles to match any requirements. The ASTM standard steel pipe specification covers both hot-finished and cold-finished mechanical tubing in sizes up to 1″-24″ O.D.
We focus on continually improving the quality of our processes. With recent investments in an intermediate finishing line, water-blast descaling process, and continuous induction thermal treat facility, we strengthened our ability to offer quality, customized solutions. Our approach to manufacturing integrates our melting, rolling, piercing and finishing operations, helping to ensure quality control from start to finish. Our seamless mechanical tubing processes include piercing (rotary forging), thermal treatment, and testing and finishing.
mechanical Steel Pipe Materials & Manufacture
Steel used to produce mechanical steel pipe may be made by any process; if the purchaser requires a specified type of melting, please note this in your RFQ or when ordering. mechanical Steel Pipe must be made in a seamless process and either hot finished or cold finished, as specified.

MECHANICAL SEAMLESS TUBE PROCESSES
PIERCING (ROTARY FORGING)
Piercing a seamless steel tube is a forging operation in which the metal is worked from the inside as well as the outside. We convert a solid bar into a hollow shell by displacing material over a mandrel during rotary rolling. This process results in a refined grain structure and uniform grain flow. Subsequent seamless tube processes include elongating to reach the desired wall thickness, rolling to achieve the outside diameter, and rotary sizing to round the tube diameter to your final required dimensions. We monitor these operations to produce a tube with uniform properties from the surface through wall and from one end to the other.
We house multiple thermal treatment facilities that tailor solutions to meet a wide range of customer needs. We also operate two Induction Thermal Treatment Facilities (ITTF), a Continuous Thermal Treatment Facility (CTTF), a Quench Temper Facility (QTF), a Gambrinus Thermal Treat Facility (GTTF) and our newest Advanced-Quench-and-Temper Facility (AQTF) in Canton, Ohio. At these facilities, we provide a diverse range of processing options to meet demanding strength and hardness requirements – regardless of the order size. We continue to develop these facilities, advance our capabilities and broaden our sophistication in thermal treatment offerings so you can rely on TimkenSteel for innovative product designs and proven quality.
TESTING AND FINISHING
Our $50 million intermediate finishing line (IFL) in Canton incorporates the latest technologies and employs lean processes. This significantly eliminates product touches and material movements, helping improve your lead times. Our state-of-the-art finishing processes through the IFL include straightening, water blast scale removal, cutting, ultrasonic testing, eddy current testing, and dimensional gauging. IFL testing capabilities include hardness, strength, and toughness and cleanness testing in order to meet your specifications.
