Well before production begins in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, every seamless tube and pipe order goes through a rigorous verification to ensure all of our customer's specifications are met. From taking an order to releasing it for production to delivering it on time, every time, MST comes to the rescue.
Our on-site metallurgical lab performs thorough testing to ensure the materials we ship meet the requirements of each order. At MST, we guarantee every order meets the mechanical properties, chemistry, hardness and any other necessary specifications required by our customers.
After cooling, the shell is cold worked on a draw bench, which pulls it through the stationary die and over a mandrel. This process improves grain structure and surface condition; increases hardness; and reduces the product to the desired size and thickness within extremely close tolerances.
When cold working is complete, each piece moves to the annealing furnace, where variations of temperature, time and number of cycles produce a wide range of hardness and tensile strength to meet the industry standards as well as customer specifications and requirements.
Every seamless pipe and tube manufactured by MST is cold drawn (cold finished) to our customers' exact specifications. Each order goes through a series of precise steps and thorough testing in our state-of-the-art facility before being shipped on time, every time.
Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility provides the widest range of tooling available in the United States so we can manufacture cold drawn seamless Multi-Lead Rifled (MLR) tubing to accommodate any application. This ribbed tubing can be precisely manufactured using your engineering drawings with rib count and tooling details.
The Michigan-based seamless tube and pipe manufacturer has constructed a new 9600 sq. ft. building to house the pickle lines, extended billet inspection area, a new crane and acid tubs. Dubbed the Pickle Expansion Project internally, MST expects this improvement to provide an additional 450 tons per month of finishing capacity and improve overall material flow through the existing steel mill.
At MST, no order is considered complete until it's been safely delivered to you. All cold-drawn tubes and pipes receive minimal handling in our facility so they maintain excellent surface finish. Our shipping specialists ensure the final products are carefully packaged in bare bundles using metal straps. Only overhead crane loading is allowed, and all shipped products require tarping with straps -- not chains, which can potentially harm the surface finish. Our work isn't done until you've received your order, and the entire MST team works together to make certain all of our products reach their destination on time, every time.
Our manufacturing facility has been recently modernized to include a new UV coating line that produces a 100% solid UV coating with numerous benefits. UV ProTech offers superior corrosion protection using state-of-the-art ultraviolet technology. Use it on any of our tube and pipe products to improve their appearance and resist rust -- especially important if you're shipping overseas.
