In Otalum, extruded aluminium tubes come in three types: round tube, square tube and rectangle tube. Just like other aluminum extrusions profiles manufactured by Otalum, our aluminum extrusion tubes can also be cut to different sizes if the existing products do not meet your requirements.
All of our aluminium extruded tubes are produced according to the standard GB5237.1-2017 with the following alloys, 6005, 6060, 6061, 6063, 6082, etc.
Precise cutting to length and processing services are available with the fastest lead time.
Aluminum tube benefits a wide variety of industries. Outdoor recreation manufacturers use tubing to construct materials like camp chair frames and outdoor tables. In the medical industry, aluminium profile tube appears in wheelchair frames, bed frames, and crutches. Automotive and rail transportation manufacturers make use of aluminium tubes in the fuselage, hydraulic systems, and fuel lines, and its heat-conductive capabilities render it a good alternative to steel in refrigerators, engines, and HVAC systems. Aluminium tubes can also be found supporting chain-link fences, dining tables, and housing electric equipment.
Due to its light weight, the unit weight of aluminum pipe is larger than that of steel pipe. Many products benefit from the use of lighter tubing materials, especially those that require a certain degree of mobility, such as wheelchairs and outdoor furniture. The aluminum tube will not lose its luster. Compared with other metals, it is easier to accept paint and other decorations, thereby enhancing its beauty.
Aluminum has very good thermal conductivity, making aluminum tubes ideal for applications that rely on temperature control, including refrigerators, solar and air conditioning systems. In addition, applications such as hydraulic systems, fuel lines, frames, and racks benefit from the light weight and durability of aluminum tubes.
There are several different aluminum alloys. Various combinations of aluminum, magnesium, and silicon form a strong alloy. In particular, manufacturers use square tube aluminum alloy 6061 for many medium and high-strength applications because of its higher weldability and excellent corrosion resistance. The 6061 aluminum square tube is also easy to anodize, and its characteristics make it very suitable for heat treatment. It is also the cheapest aluminum alloy tube.
Manufacturers also use aluminum square tube alloy 6063 because of its very smooth surface finish. Because its strength is only about half that of aluminum alloy 6061, aluminum alloy 6063 often appears in applications that value beauty rather than strength. This material still has many of the same anodizing capabilities as aluminum alloy 6061.
