This customer came to G.E. Mathis Company to produce their custom welded boom-tube section.

Our experienced, AWS-certified welders are skilled at welding these boom-tubes with precision, and work to hold all dimensions to extremely tight tolerances.

custom welded tube

Designed to be used in a crane application, we seam welded this boom-tube section using our submerged arc seam welder. This custom sized tube was made from high strength steel over 240.00″ long. We ground the seams after welding as a finishing process. Working to tightest tolerances of ±0.125″ throughout this project, our inspection process included first article, mid-run, and final inspections. By the end of the project, we had completed 50 pieces of this tube, and delivered them to the customer’s facility within 3 weeks.
