Drawn Over Mandrel (DOM) Round Mechanical Tubing is a cold drawn 1020/1026 electric resistance welded tube with all the flash removed prior to cold drawing. In comparison to another tubing, DOM round steel tubing is produced to more exact OD and ID tolerances and has the highest weld strength possible. Industrial Tube and Steel Corporation has been a Drawn Over Mandrel (DOM) Mechanical Tubing supplier for over 65 years.
DOM Tubing Made from 1020 / 1026 Steel
Meets ASTM A513 Type 5
A513 T5 DOM Tubing Tolerances
The manufacturing process for DOM round steel tubing begins with coils of steel, which are slit to the proper width for the desired tube size. The strip is cold formed and passed through an electric resistance welder which joins the edges together, under pressure, to complete the tubular shape. After testing the weld’s integrity, the tubing is cut to length for further processing. The cold-drawing process creates a uniform, precision product with substantially improved tolerances, surface finish and tensile strength, increased hardness, and good machinability. In this process, the tube is cleaned and annealed, and one end of each length is squeezed to a point so it can be gripped by the drawing mechanism. The tube is then drawn through one or more dies and over mandrels. This reduces the diameter of the tube and thins its walls to the required dimensions in a controlled fashion to provide the qualities desired in the finished product. Metallurgically, drawing improves the tube’s concentricity, tensile strength, hardness, and machinability. Close dimensional accuracy is achieved through tight control of both outside and inside diameters.
