Streamline and Oval Tubing
One of the services we can offer is the supply of streamline and oval tubing that has been re profiled from a round tube.
The rolling process opens up the options to use various different metal grades that may usually be found as round tube only. The flexible tooling enables small batch production, fabrication repairs and prototyping without the extra costs.
⇒ Aerofoil / Streamline
⇒ Large Oval (ERW and Stainless Steel only)
Length & Quantity
The minimum quantity for a re-profiling is just 1 length of round tube.
The profiling machines can produce from 1mtr up to 5.8mtr lengths, depending on size selection, material grade and thickness.
We will advise on the maximum length when quoting.
For greater quantity production we are able to manufacture the profiles as a cold drawn direct at our Mill source. This reduces costs further and also enables a higher level of quality control in terms of each individual lengths properties when produced.
Materials available for re-rolling and cold drawing are commonly:
- BS4 T45 to BS5T100 / BS6S100
- 4130 Chromoly
- ROPT510 (MSA & FIA approved: Designed by Proformance metals )
- E235+N (cold drawn seamless)
- Stainless steel
We are able to supply most Ferrari and Maserati chassis profiles alongside many smaller sections, either from re-profile or cold drawn manufacture depending on material selection. Click here to find out more
