Suitable to Hone Mechanical Tubing

Suitable to Hone Mechanical Tubing is produced from either Cold Drawn Seamless (CDS) Tubing or Drawn Over Mandrel (DOM) Tubing. Suitable to Hone Tubing is intentionally produced with an oversized wall thickness, which is intended to be honed to a smooth finish ID for cylinder applications. By utilizing suitable to hone tubing, machine time is reduced and waste is minimized.
