Seamless pipes are, as the word says, pipes that are produced without a weld/seam. This makes seamless pipes ideal for high pressure projects, and are therefore perfect for projects where high demands are made.
A steel billet will be heated to high temperatures in an oven after which it is possible to create a cylindri- cal hollow. This hollow is produced using a rotary piercer and rollers.
Seamless tubes are mainly used for machine/equipment construction, petrochemical industry, shipbuilding, structural engineering, high pressure cylinders and automotive industry.
