Typical Uses
DOM Steel Tube can be used for a wide variety of mechanical applications. It may be used either statically or dynamically. Its close tolerances, good finish, and dense structure make it ideal for parts such as:

Bearings, Bushings, Couplings, Collets, Fittings, Damper Tubes
Shafts
Cylinders
Axles
Conveyor rolls
Telescoping and push-pull applications
Steering columns
Shift levers
Airbag inflators
Power seat mechanisms, Seat assembly components
Engine mounts
Fuel rails and injection components
Motorcycle and snowmobile frames
Supports and guards
Diesel injection components
Piston pins
Torque wrenches
Extensions and handles
Shanks

A513-T5 DOM Tube

Alro stocks A513 Type 5 Drawn Over Mandrel Tubing. DOM Steel Tube is produced using uniformly high quality C1020 carbon steel strip and is formed and electric resistance welded into its basic shape. After annealing to produce a uniform grain structure throughout, the tube is then cold drawn over a mandrel to give it these advantages: uniform concentricity around the central axis, better ovality, closer tolerances, denser surface, uniform wall thickness, and higher physical properties. The cold working process works the weld area to produce a sound, dense, and homogeneous structure comparable to that of the base metal.

The weld line disappears, causing DOM tube to be virtually seamless. The surface is superior to that of regular seamless tubing, since the material has been cold drawn from strip steel. The hole is straight and concentric with the outside diameter. DOM Steel Tube may be machined, formed, welded, carburized, and subjected to other fabricating techniques that are ordinarily applied to low carbon steel. The use of DOM Steel Tube gives you a guaranteed micro-inch surface and lower productions costs by reducing or eliminating such operations as boring, honing, and finishing.
