As of December 2023, there is now an official ASTM standard for laser welded stainless steel square and rectangle tubing products. The new ASTM International Standard is ASTM A1127/A1127M-23 and is the specification for Stainless Steel Laser and Laser-Hybrid Welded, Sharp-Cornered Profile (SCP) or Built-Up Rounded Corner Square, Rectangular, and Special Shape Structural Tube. This is the first official standard that covers sharp corner, laser welded structural tubing in stainless steel. As the leading manufacturer, and innovators of laser welded tubing, Stainless Structurals is very excited for this official specification.
This sharp cornered tubing can be used in both architectural or industrial applications. This includes but is not limited to architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) applications such as curtain walls, canopies, entry ways, staircases and more. Laser welded allows for unlimited design flexibility and no other tube production can offer the size range, geometries and customizations that laser welded can.
