Precision seamless steel pipe is a kind of high precision steel pipe material after quenching or cold rolling treatment. Because of no oxide layer of the surface, precision seamless steel pipe has the advantages of high-pressure, high-precision, high-grade finish, which can be used to manufacture cylinders and welded pipes.
Compared to other solid steel material, seamless steel pipe is lighter with the same flexural torsional strength. It is an economic section of steel, widely used in the manufacture of structural and mechanical parts. Precision seamless steel pipe also has some of their own characteristics. They have been widely used to manufacture ring parts, can improve the utilization of materials, simplify the manufacturing process, save materials and processing time, such as rolling bearing rings, jack sets.
Generally, the industry require a higher precision, they often use precision seamless steel pipe, others mainly use seamless steel pipe if there is no precision requirements. After all, the price of precision seamless steel pipe is higher.
Why the current price of precision seamless steel pipe will be improved? China's steel production has increased, but the market demand for steel is too large, resulting in steel demand. And steel is the main material for the production of precision seamless steel pipe, steel shortage led to the shortage of precision seamless steel pipe, we know that the market demand for precision seamless steel pipe is increasing, and in this case, the price also increased. There are many different types of precision seamless steel pipe. Tthe materials are also different, such as 10#, 20#, 35#, 45#, 16Mn, 20Cr, 40Cr, Gcr15 and so on. Different types are required, therefore, there will be a type of precision pipe inevitably tube out of storage in a specific period of time, which makes the price increase.
From a certain point of view, if the market supply of precision pipe can meet the actual market demand, then the price will not be high. With the mature of precision pipe industry, the quality also need improve and become much more strict, many enterprises have to improve the production process and production technology. This is an increase in the production cost of the pipes. Therefore, the increase of added value leads to higher price.
