SMC is leader in aluminum tubing, structural aluminum tubing, and standard and custom aluminum extrusions. We are capable of
producing some of the largest OD sizes and highest precision tolerances in the industry for virtually any type of application, from
high pressure and mechanical to architectural and framing.
Extruded tube is brought to final dimensions by the hot extrusion process and can be seamless or non-seamless. Although you
cannot visually tell the difference between seamless and structural pipe and tube, they are different, and choosing the right one will
