Product Display

Honed tube is well known as the best material to manufacture hydraulic cylinders. This is because honed tubes are the most critical materials for hydraulic cylinders. Honing is essentially a bore sizing and surface preparation process.

Honed tube is usually a CDS (Cold drawn seamless) steel tube or DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) steel tube with inside diameter honed or skived &roller burnished, so honed tubing is with extremely precise ID dimensions and smoothly ID surface.

How to make honed tube

The tubes surface finishing is NBK, where the tubes are phosphate and normalized which provides corrosion resistance. It is oiled inside and outside. Normalize process creates tougher metal product. During normalizing, metals will be heated at a high temperature, and it allowed to naturally cool back down to room temperature by exposure after heating. Metals that have been through this process are more formable, harder and ductile.

Advantages of Honed Tube

• High precision tolerances;
  Our honed tube can meet ID tolerance H7, H8, H9, … etc according to the customer’requirements, and its I.D dimension.

• Seamless tube with high pressure resistance;
  We only use seamless cold drawn tubes to produce honed pipes, which means our honed tubing can work under higher pressure, thus our honed pipes are more reliable for hydraulic   cylinder applications.

• High Smooth inside surface;
  The roughness of our honed pipe is Max Ra 0.4 microns ID finish (16Max Ra ID Finish).

• Flexible order quantity: we accept small quantity orders, even if there is only one piece of hydraulic cylinder tubing we can produce and supply.

• Good weldability: The weldability of our honed steel tubing is very good, this is quite helpful for manufacturing the cylinders.


1. Hydraulic Cylinders: These tubes serve as the main component of hydraulic cylinders, providing the housing for the piston and rod assembly. They allow hydraulic fluid to act upon the piston, generating linear motion.

2. Construction Equipment: Hydraulic cylinders are used in construction machinery like excavators, backhoes, and bulldozers for tasks such as lifting, digging, and pushing.

3. Manufacturing Machinery: Hydraulic cylinder tubes are integral in manufacturing equipment, including presses, injection molding machines, and metal forming machines, where precise control of force and motion is essential.

4. Agricultural Machinery: They are employed in agricultural equipment such as tractors, combines, and plows for functions like raising and lowering attachments and steering.

5. Material Handling: Hydraulic cylinders play a vital role in material handling equipment like forklifts and conveyor systems for lifting and transporting goods.

6. Aerospace: In aircraft, hydraulic cylinders are used in landing gear, control surfaces, and cargo loading systems.

7. Marine: Hydraulic systems in ships and boats utilize hydraulic cylinders for steering, stabilizing, and other operations.

8. Mining: The mining industry relies on hydraulic cylinders for equipment like drills, loaders, and crushers.

9. Automotive: Hydraulic cylinders are used in various automotive applications, including convertible top mechanisms, power steering systems, and brake systems.
