Scot Forge produces 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.
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.
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.
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.
Solid steel bars require boring. Steel tubes frequently need excess machining. Castings often do not meet internal part strength specifications.
Below are some examples of how forged hollow products have served as a customized solution for many of Scot Forge's customers:
