Our products

Product category: Seamless tubes made of other steel grades

Seamless tubes and hollow bars

Our tube products are characterised by uniform properties, close tolerances and small machining allowances. Ovako’s tubes and hollow bars are used when there are stringent demands on the material, such as within the rolling bearing, automotive, hydraulic and manufacturing industries.

As a service to our customers, we have a standard tube program offering smaller order quantities and a shorter lead time than we normally require for a production batch. Ovako has two such standard programs. The bearing steel program covers roughly 350 tube sizes from OD 50 to 243 mm, and the Ovako 280 hollow bar program that covers microalloyed steel hollow bars in grade Ovako 280 based on the standard EN 10294. Within the Ovako 280 hollow bar program, we keep roughly 250 dimensions in stock from OD 30 to 256.5 mm.

Both the bearing steel tubes and the Ovako 280 hollow bar program are based on tight machining allowances. For each item we can provide a guaranteed finished turned size for either inner or outer chucking. Both have the tubes stocked at our mill as well as at some of our sales companies and appointed distributors. In addition to the bearing steel program and the Ovako 280 hollow bar program, we supply tubes in all Ovako standard steel grades.

Hot-rolled bars

Over the years we have gained a good reputation for products suitable for applications when fatigue strength, toughness and wear resistance are critical. As well as meeting specified requirements, our bar products offer good formability, machinability and weldability, making them a cost-saving solution. Our hot-rolled bars can be further processed by heat treatment and chrome plating.

Our hot-rolled bars are characterised by close tolerances and excellent straightness. In addition, roundness, good surfaces and low decarburization makes our bars ideally suited for forging and machining.

A major part of our round bars is supplied as peeled, ground or drawn bright bars. The Ovako hot-rolled bar offering also contains round bars, flat bars, round corner squared bars, special properties bars, special profiles and precomponents plus our SR-100 Wire and the Cromax product family. All available in a variety of sizes.

Hard-chromed plated bars and tubes

With more than 40 years of experience in production of hard chrome plated bars and tubes, Ovako Cromax is the pioneer and the technology leader in its field. The unique position of in-house production from steel mill to plating, facilitates unmatched quality and consistency of the base materials and surface. Today Ovako is one of the largest producers of hard chrome plated bars and tubes on the market, with production units in Sweden, The Netherlands, France and Italy and the offer extends to professional technical support and customer unique solutions in cut-lengths, packing and inventory management.

Chrome-plated bars and tubes are primarily used as piston rods, a critical component in hydraulic cylinders. The basic function of transforming hydraulic power to a linear motion whilst preventing ingress of abrasive media into the hydraulic system will stipulate a set of demands on the rod. Our steel grades are optimized in analysis and production method to match the requirements in mechanical properties as well as amenability to our plating process.

About us

Company details

Innovative steel for a better engineered future.

Ovako is a leading European manufacturer of engineering steel for customers e.g. in the bearing, transportation and manufacturing industries. With geographical presence in Europe, North America and Asia, and a steel product line that includes niche products and customized solutions, Ovako is contributing to create value for its customers and their customers all over the world.

We manufacture clean, strong and sustainable steel. Our steel is sustainable because the production process is based on steel scrap and a Nordic low-carbon electricity mix. As a result, the carbon footprint of Ovako’s steel products is a full 80 percent lower than the global average. It is also clean and strong because Ovako minimizes impurities in the steel during the production process. This gives the steel high-quality properties that enable customers to create lighter, stronger and more durable end products.

Since 2018, we are part of Nippon Steel Corporation which is a world leading producer of steel.
