Why Forged Hollows?

At Scot Forge, we offer a better option than - solid steel bars require boring; steel tubes that frequently need excess machining; or castings that often do not meet internal part strength specifications. 

We produce hollow tube-like forgings in diameters up to 90" with a 2" minimum wall thickness and up to 360" long or 300,000 lbs., in ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

Forged Hollow Tube Advantages

  • Cutting waste
  • Reduced machining
  • Improved integrity

Hollows by Scot Forge

Hollows Process Highlights

Forging a hollow tube begins by making an upset preform, then punching a hole through the center. The preform is then drawn out over a mandrel to the specified length and O.D./I.D. configuration.

Various Shapes

Hollows can be produced not only in a straight cylindrical shape but with unlimited variations of O.D.s and I.D.s, including tapers. We also provide closed-end cylinders, both with and without flanges, in various wall thicknesses and cylinder end configurations to accommodate our customers' requirements.

Forged Hollows Time & Cost Savings

Because the inside diameter of the hollow is forged rather than bored from a solid bar, Scot Forge eliminates the need for additional machining, customers save time, money and reduce material waste.

Scot Forge saves production time and increases part strength for customers by producing hollow parts, such as flange hollows, as single components rather than several components welded together.

Scot Forge Difference

At Scot Forge, we know the importance of getting your parts on-time, as expected. However, for customers new to procuring forgings, ordering a forging that will meet all specifications for end-use applications may be a challenge, which is why finding a trusted supplier and partner is essential. Our employee-owners are here to ensure your project stays on track with our forgings by offering:

Pro Tip - Did you know near-net shapes can save you time and money? Oftentimes, a customer calls to order a disc, which they will later machine down to a more shaped part. By working with our technically trained sales team you can get as close to your finished product shape as possible to optimize your production process.
