Hydro Aluminium Precision Tubing manufactures large diameter Welded aluminium tubes which are commonly used in Structural components. With this large diameter capability, we can offer a complete range of aluminium tubes (16 to 152 mm).
Hydro aluminium tubes & products that can be used in this application:
- Round welded aluminium tubes
- Rectangular welded aluminium tubes
- Flat-Oval welded aluminium tubes
Our seam welded aluminium tubes, which are well suited to bending, swaging, flaring and hydroforming processes, are characterized by close geometrical tolerances and high surface quality – ideal for meeting the tight package requirements of modern car design.
Typical Structural applications:
• Chassis subframes
• Engine cradles
• Drive shafts
• Body frames
• Structural components
• Instrument panel beams
• Radiator supports
• Crash elements
• Shock absorbers
• Pistons for air-suspension systems
Some further options:
Longitudinally seam-welded tubes can be produced in many different cross-sectional shapes for use in a range of applications. Decisive is the outstanding formability of the alloys used (high elongation) and the high reproducibility of the manufacturing process (tight tolerances).
Longitudinally seam-welded tubes are the convincing solution because of their outstanding forming properties and high cost-effectiveness. In large batches, they are particularly attractive for automotive applications. Thin-walled, large-diameter tubes can be manufactured easily. Precision and quality are also assured at low processing costs. The welded tube solution offers different characteristics to extrusions. Our Application and Engineering department can help you make the right choice.
