Precision steel tubes - shock absorber

The manufacturers of shock absorbers are increasingly looking for solutions enabling the optimization of their in-house processes. In addition, solutions reducing vehicle weight are high on the agenda. This results in demands for precision steel tubes with high strength which feature non-varying processing behavior. 

MPT stands for high-quality precision steel tubes for shock absorber components.

Customer expectations:

  • High surface quality (post-processing not required)
  • Suitability for follow-on plastic forming processes
  • Suitability for grading properties

Tube requirements:

  • Minimal scattering of mechanical properties
  • Tightest tolerances
  • Clean component surfaces and the best surface quality
