Applications

Titanium pipes are a common mill product used in the manufacture of a wide range of products and applications. From medical implants to large industrial heat exchangers, through to use in aircraft component structures. In recent years we have seen an increased demand from steel fabricators who now view titanium as a real alternative to meet the demands for stronger and lighter and cheaper metal tubes.

Production Process

The production of titanium tubes takes two distinct approaches, one for the production of seamless tubes, the second for welded tubes. The type of tube is determined by the size and the application for use.

Seamless Tube Production

Seamless tube production uses a variety of equipment dependent on the tube requirements and seamless ti tubing is manufactured by either rotary piercing or extrusion.

Rotary Piercing

titanium tube rotary piercing
Titanium Tube Extrusion Rotary piercing tube production is where billet is pushed through a two roller which are convex-tapered rotating in the same direction. The rollers compress the material and a tapered mandrel is set inside the central void. The mandrel forces the titanium outards and then compresses the material against the back tapered rollers. The tube is then cooled and then cold and hot worked to the desired diameters and specifications.

Extrusion

Extrusion is a process used to create objects of a fixed, cross-sectional profile. A material is pushed or drawn through a die of the desired cross-section. The two main advantages of this process over other manufacturing processes are its ability to create very complex cross-sections and work materials that are brittle, because the material only encounters compressive and shear stresses. The internal cavity is extruded by placing a pin or mandrel inside of the die

titanium-tube-production-lifecycle

Welded Tube Production

The welding process is one of the core ways in which we manufacture titanium tubes. Our high quality tubing starts off as a flat strip of metal. The strip is formed into a tube through a series of rollers and the join, also called the seam, is then welded together.

Titanium Tubes and Packaging

All of our titanium pipes come packaged in plywood cases and wrapped in foam with all pricing and quotes include the titanium tube packaging. We also can accommodate customer specific packaging and shipping requirements for ti tubes. Contact our customer service team now for more information.

Production Process

The production of titanium tubes takes two distinct approaches, one for the production of seamless tubes, the second for welded tubes. The type of tube is determined by the size and the application for use.

Seamless Tube Production

Seamless tube production uses a variety of equipment dependent on the tube requirements and seamless ti tubing is manufactured by either rotary piercing or extrusion.

Rotary Piercing

titanium tube rotary piercing Titanium Tube Extrusion Rotary piercing tube production is where billet is pushed through a two roller which are convex-tapered rotating in the same direction. The rollers compress the material and a tapered mandrel is set inside the central void. The mandrel forces the titanium outards and then compresses the material against the back tapered rollers. The tube is then cooled and then cold and hot worked to the desired diameters and specifications.

Extrusion

Extrusion is a process used to create objects of a fixed, cross-sectional profile. A material is pushed or drawn through a die of the desired cross-section. The two main advantages of this process over other manufacturing processes are its ability to create very complex cross-sections and work materials that are brittle, because the material only encounters compressive and shear stresses. The internal cavity is extruded by placing a pin or mandrel inside of the die titanium-tube-production-lifecycle

Welded Tube Production

The welding process is one of the core ways in which we manufacture titanium tubes. Our high quality tubing starts off as a flat strip of metal. The strip is formed into a tube through a series of rollers and the join, also called the seam, is then welded together.

Titanium Tubes and Packaging

All of our titanium pipes come packaged in plywood cases and wrapped in foam with all pricing and quotes include the titanium tube packaging. We also can accommodate customer specific packaging and shipping requirements for ti tubes. Contact our customer service team now for more information. titanium tubes

Titanium Pipe Production Technology

From all the titanium mill products, titanium tubing offers perhaps the greatest technical challenge and so is the need for superior excellence in engineering.

Titanium Tube Quality Assurance

At North Steel we strive to be the market leader in titanium production through our dedication to control and quality. We have invested heavily in governance and training. We have invested in advanced equipment & advanced technology, including our own ERP management & QC system. Each of our product orders undergoes extensive quality control and each comes with an independent third party testing and inspection report. We have a large inventory stock to be able to satisfy order quickly and on time.
