Heavy walled steel tube is one of the core products of our wide product range and one we are
renound for making to exceptional accuracy. Industries profiting from this are the mining industry (conveyor rollers), the truck and trailer industry, machine builders, construction and many more.
We always strive to ensure that our product is suitable for the customer's application and will settle for no less than that. To achieve this we implement strict quality control measures and maintain them by means of the international ISO9001 standards system. Sophisticated digital solutions enable us to incorporate custom specifications to any cold-formed round, square and rectangular steel hollow sections.
Tubecon also stocks and delivers larger diameter or "Big Bore" tubes in Southern Africa. These structural tubes are large, cold formed, welded sections which can be cold drawn to square and rectangular steel tubes from the correct mother tube.
Cold rolled steel tubes can be internally scarfed or fin controlled while rolling. Tubecon also stocks a wide variety of scarfed and fin controlled steel tubes. An internally scarfed tube's weld is scarfed out during the rolling process while a fin controlled steel tube's weld is a constant thickness throughout the tube, this being kept as minute as possible. With our head office located in Pretoria, Gauteng, and a branch in Cape Town we are able to roll-form and supply to a large part of the South African market. Our steel tubes and profiles are supplied into areas such as Durban, Bloemfontein, Potchefstroom and Klerksdorp almost daily.
We implement Lean Manufacturing, as a means to improve our own production performance. Reliable delivery is achieved by this continuous improvement process.
We stock a wide range of standard items in the heavy gauge range to facilitate the short lead times. Due to the aforementioned improvements to our production process however, we can also supply non-standard items surprisingly rapidly.
