UrBC, Yekaterinburg, June 10,2015. TMK-ARTROM (a member enterprise of Pipe Metallurgical Company/TMK) has recently commissioned a department for precision pipe production; the pipes are meant for the car-making industry and for manufacturing of hydraulic cylinders, the company press service reports.

TMK-ARTROM is currently one of Europe’s leading weldless industrial pipe manufacturers, exporting nearly 85% of its produce to more than fifty different countries.

The new department is fitted with up-to-date equipment meant for knurling treatment of the internal sides of cold-worked weldless pipes. The pipes will be used for making hydraulic cylinders in load-lifting equipment and complex industrial machinery; the cylinders are also needed in the automobile and aircraft-making industries. This means the company will be able to enter new markets with its premium quality product. The department’s capacity is estimated at 25,000,000,000 kg of pipes a year.

‘TMK has invested over €200m into its Rumania-based production facilities since starting the business in the country. Now that the cylinder pipe production department is operating, TMK’s European branch has made one more step on the way to conquering new markets as the supplier of highly profitable products for the machine-building industry. The launch of the new department will create new jobs and bring more tax revenues to the national and local budgets,’ says TMK Director-General Alexander Shiryayev.
