DOM Tubing Advantages

The drawn over mandrel tubing process (DOM) creates a more concentric, uniform product that maintains tolerances closer to a customer’s exact specifications. DOM tubes also have superior mechanical properties, including increased hardness and tensile strength and a sound welding seam. This makes them ideal for use in automotive components and mechanical parts, such as hydraulic cylinders, without requiring further machining. Further DOM tubing Benefits include:
  • Good strength
  • Excellent surface quality
  • Exceptionally close tolerances
  • Uniformity
  • Easy machinability


 

Drawn over mandrel tubing (DOM) is produced from a specific manufacturing process that makes the seam within the tube nearly invisible. The DOM round steel tube manufacturing process works by smoothing out the internal weld seam of a cold formed steel tube, while simultaneously enhancing its mechanical properties. DOM tubing is produced by annealing (heating) the tube to soften it so that it can be pulled over a tapered steel shaft (drawn over mandrel).


 

 DOM (1020 & 1025) Round Steel Tube Mechanical Properties

DOM round steel tube is mandrel drawn, which produces a tube that has increased dimensional accuracy and tolerances with a smooth inside and outside finish. This steel tubing product is ideal for applications of increased stress. This product is ideal for highly stressful applications that require good mechanical properties including uniformity, strength and soundness.

DOM Round Steel Tube Automotive Applications

Due to its numerous beneficial qualities, DOM tubing is used exclusively in the automotive sector for a wide range of applications, including:
  • Roll cages
  • Race car frames
  • Shafts
  • Chassis
  • Camshaft tubes
  • Engine mounts
  • Headers
  • Struts
  • Axles

DOM Tubing Industrial Applications

Drawn over mandrel tubing is not only used for automotive applications. It also provides many other advantageous qualities that benefits several other industries including:
  • Construction
  • Oil & gas
  • Agriculture
  • Energy
  • General fabrication
  • Infrastructure
  • Fluid handling
