Introduction To Welded Steel Tubing

Ideas take shape – an infinite variety of shapes, in fact – with tubing.

Starting with one tube mill over fifty years ago, California Steel and Tube is now producing quality welded steel tubing from five tube mills, two slitting lines and accessory equipment for further processing.

Welded mechanical steel tubing is used in a multitude of applications where strength, appearance, ease of fabrication, resistance to torsion, and maximum strength to weight ratio are required.

Having earned an enviable reputation for quality and service, the company is a major supplier to many key industries. Each month millions of feet are supplied for exercise equipment, home and office furniture, automotive products, material handling products, garden equipment, display racks, trusses, fencing, and a variety of specialty products.

Some typical uses for welded mechanical tubing are:

  • Automotive headers, roll bars, side steps, brush guards, camper jacks, motorcycle accessories and exhaust systems, and boat trailers.
  • Dinette sets, desks, chairs, bed frames, patio furniture, convertible sofas, chairs, store display fixtures, and lighting products.
  • Ornamental iron fences, gates, trusses, and scaffolding.
  • Health and exercise machines, wheel chairs and walkers, racks, wheel barrows, shopping carts, lawn mowers, and grass cutters.

Many unique shapes of welded steel tubing are produced by using special tooling – let your ideas take shape.

All tubing is produced to exact customer specifications to meet the customers’ specific requirements. Accessory equipment permits the company to supply exact lengths, with the ends deburred where necessary, plus flattening, punching, etc.

Steel of the highest quality, purchased to exact specifications, provides a large inventory of hot rolled pickled and oiled, cold rolled commercial quality and pre-galvanized – plus special purpose steel such as aluminum killed, drawing quality and structural grades.

Let your ideas take shape in steel tubing and let California Steel and Tube help you turn those ideas into saleable products.
