Raw tube thickness is not uniform,the cold drawn process can only change ID/OD,but can not remove the tube wall thickness different.
The way to ensure 100% concentricity and straightness:
- Use raw tube with 100% uniform thickness(it is not available at market,100%is not realatic)
- Make the OD bigger than request and turning the OD to the required size,after this 100% straightness and concentricity honed tubes and hollow rods can be achieved.This is workable but cost is high
For example,customer need size ID120*OD140mm.First we need to prepare tube with OD143mm then turning it to 140mm
Normal cold drawn tube with ordinary straightness and concentricity
Advantage: most customer’s choice,low cost,producing time is fast stock available
Disadvantage: concentricityand straightness is not high
OD machined cold drawn tube with high precision straightness anf concentricity
Advantage: 100% concentricity and straightness
Disadvantage: need to customize,high cost,producing time is longer ,stock not available
