GL Precision Tube, Inc. focuses on providing its customers premium quality electric-weld steel tubing at competitive prices. Our capabilities consist of round, square, rectangular, and special shape steel tubing beginning at .709" diameter and running through 3.000" diameter, with wall thicknesses from .035" through .160". Steel grades produced include C-1008/1010 through C-1022, as well as High Strength, Low Alloy grades up to 100,000 psi minimum yield. Along with complying with all destructive tests specified by ASTM A-513 specifications, our weld monitoring processes include Eddy Current Testing, and the most recent weld monitoring technology - Thermal Process Scanning. Our capabilities include the ability to produce "cut-to-length" parts on the mill, which helps eliminate the need for secondary (and more costly) re-cutting operations. When needed, however, in addition to our tube manufacturing capabilities, we offer high-speed tube re-cutting and end finishing. We also offer Laser Quality tubing guaranteed to meet the special straightness and twist tolerances that are required for tube laser processing. GL Precision Tube has a fulltime Metallurgist on site which provides us the capability to perform metallurgical analysis of our High Frequency Welding process as well as metallurgical analysis of the steel coil we use to produce our products.
We are committed to providing the tubing consumer a superior product combined with exceptional service. Our strategic location in Aurora, Illinois (30 miles west of Chicago) provides us quick and competitive delivery access to our customers in the greater Midwestern region, along with many other areas within the eastern portion of the United States.
