United States of America – Shelby
ArcelorMittal’s Shelby, Tubular Products plant (formerly Dofasco Copperweld) manufactures welded and seamless precision tubes in a variety of steel grades for the fluid power, automotive, construction equipment, farm machinery, oil and gas tooling and service center markets. We are one of the most diversified manufacturers of tubing products in North America with deliveries throughout the world. Our annual capacity is 240,000 tons.
Our Drawn-Over-Mandrel (DOM) or cold drawn welded tubing is available in one of the most extensive size ranges in the world. A specialized product, TuffDOM tubing, is designed for the most demanding applications, in particular those involving fluid power. In test after test, TuffDOM has proven itself particularly suited to high load-bearing applications and to jobs where an exceptional ability to withstand severe stress of cold temperature is important. Our years of experience in the manufacture of DOM tubing has allowed us to reduce the guaranteed machining, honing and centerless grinding allowances for this product as much as 50% from normal industry standards, and to guarantee OD and ID tolerances that are tighter than commercial standards.
Shelby furnishes seamless tubing both in cold-drawn and hot-finished conditions. The product is available in a wide spectrum of carbon and alloy grades manufactured to ASTM, AMS, MIL, SAE, AISI and EN specifications.
We offer quench and temper heat treatment for specialized mechanical tubing products. Our facility is certified as meeting ISO 90021:2000 quality standards, as well as the auto industry’s demanding TS 16949:2002 certification. To further assure a quality product our standard non-destructive electronic testing procedures are in complete compliance with the guidelines set by ASTM and a large number of EN specifications.
ArcelorMittal Shelby’s tubular products are employed in a variety of uses, including applications for trains and aircraft, bushings, spacers, bearings, hydraulic cylinders, oil and gas tooling, drilling and agricultural, recreational, industrial and construction equipment.
