Tube & Pipe Equipment

Tube & Pipe Equipment – 140 years of cutting-edge technology
 
In the tube sector, SMS has been offering cutting-edge technology for around 140 years. The company's roots go right back to the 19th century, when Reinhard and Max Mannesmann invented a method for making seamless tubes. Together with Mannesmann, the Meer company developed the first plants for the industrial production of this new type of tubes. Today, our engineers keep this pioneering spirit alive by continually developing new solutions for tubes and pipes, in a wide range of sizes and wall thicknesses.
