New BENTELER Steel/Tube Product Marries Seamless Tube and Machining Steel

11/15/2022 - Austria’s BENTELER STEEL/TUBE has developed seamless tubes made from free-cutting steels, an innovation it says will provide seamless tube solutions for machining companies, machine builders and manufacturers of precision workpieces. 

The product, called BENTELER SMARTCUT, is available in hot-rolled and cold-drawn varieties. 

"Excessively long, uncontrolled chip formation leads to increased susceptibility to faults, scrap and tool wear on our customers' equipment. Due to its material properties, BENTELER SMARTCUT offers greatly improved, short chip formation. This has a positive effect on tool life, which is up to four times longer with BENTELER SMARTCUT tubes,” said Jan Schwarzer, sales director.
