Our hot-formed square and rectangular MSH sections produced in a wide range of specific grades make the ideal material for agricultural equipment frames or hollow section-based structures like bridges. Their high load-bearing capacity, excellent weldability and tight corner radii optimize any type of design and component connection.
Vallourec also manufactures key components for all types of crane constructions. From small truck-mounted and tower cranes to heavy-duty crawler cranes, our solutions are tailored to each need. With hot-finished mechanical tubes and structural hollow sections of different diameters, wall thicknesses and grades, our products boast high buckling resistance under tensile and compressive loads. We are proud to offer slim and durable high-strength designs for loads involving cyclic vibratory stresses.
The advantages of Vallourec mechanical tubes for hydraulic cylinders are widely recognized. They are used worldwide by leading manufacturers of hydraulic units for cranes, roof supports, hydraulic shields, and heavy earth-moving and agricultural equipment.
