Ever since the Mannesmann brothers' radical invention in 1885, SMS group has continuously improved the seamless tube production process. Take for example our PQF® (Premium Quality Finishing) process and its innovative technology packages. This innovative power proves we offer you competitive solutions for seamless tubes.

Our cold pilger mills use a special cold forming process which is both cost-efficient and indispensable for many applications. It involves a large number of forming steps to improve roundness, stress homogeneity, and surface roughness of the tubes.
