Here are the principal benefits you can expect from DOM tubing in mechanical applications:
Close tolerances allow DOM to be used for mechanical parts with minimal or no downstream processing.
Cold-drawing gives DOM high yield and tensile strength.
DOM has uniform wall thickness and concentricity, as well as uniform mechanical properties.
DOM offers exceptionally close tolerances for OD, ID and wall thickness dimensions.
OD and ID surfaces of DOM are free of oxide and scale and have a smooth, dense finish with no trace of the weld.
DOM is easily machined, with only a nominal stock allowance for clean-up.
Wide Range of Sizes
DOM can be manufactured to an almost infinite range of OD and wall thickness dimensions by varying the size of the dies and mandrels used.
