Forming Different Sizes of Metal Pipe for Producing Furniture Legs & Decorative Pipes with Metal Pipe Processing Machines

Choosing The Right Metal Pipes for Producing Different Products

As a manufacturer in furniture, stairs, or other industries about building, you may be familiar with metal pipes, which you will use to produce a lot of products: furniture legs and frames, balusters of stairs, railings, etc.

According to the production requirements, it is possible for you to need to process different sizes of metal pipes. For example, you will use thinner metal pipes in length of about 400-500mm for dining chair legs but thicker pipes in about 700-800mm long for the legs of paring bigger dining tables. Choosing the right metal pipes with suitable diameter ensures the efficiency in manufacturing.

In this article, we will introduce the common using ways of metal pipes with different size in furniture or building decoration manufacturing to you.

Choosing The Right Metal Pipes for Producing Different Products

What Can You Produce with the Metal Pipes with Different Size?

According to the processing ranges of Mingyi’s metal pipe processing machines, we list some sizes of metal pipes and their common using ways in the following table.

Diameter (mm)≤Φ51≤Φ51Φ51-Φ76Φ51-Φ76≥Φ76
Length (mm)400-600700-1000100-400500-800≥800
Possible using waysDining chair legs, office chair armsBar stool legsSofa legs, bed legsTable legsRailing balusters
The thinner and shorter metal pipes in taper square shape are ideal for making dining chair legs
The thinner and shorter metal pipes in taper square shape are ideal for making dining chair legs

Diameter ≤Φ51mm, Length between 400-600mm

The metal pipes in this size range are usually used for producing the accessories of small furniture, such as dining chair legs, Chiavari chair legs, and office chair arms.

Diameter ≤Φ51mm, Length between 500-1000mm

If the furniture manufacturers want to make the legs for bar stool chairs, they will use longer metal pipes to suit the height of bars.

Diameter between Φ51-Φ76mm, Length between 100-400mm

These shorter but thicker metal pipes are used for forming legs of furniture in bigger sizes, such as sofa legs and bed legs.

Diameter between Φ51-Φ76mm, Length between 500-800mm

Compared with the shorter metal pipes with same diameter range, these metal pipes are often used in table legs. If for the tea tables, the pipes will be shorter.

Conclusion

In the furniture, stairs, or other industries about building, the metal pipes in different size have various using ways.

According to the processing ranges of Mingyi’s metal pipe processing machines, we enumerate these size ranges of metal pipes and exemplify the possible using ways:

For the metal pipes with diameter no more than Φ51mm, the shorter pipes in about 400-600mm length will be used for dining chair legs, office chair arms, and the longer pipes in about 700-1000 length are for bar stool legs.

The pipes with diameter in between Φ51-Φ76mm and length between 100-400mm are possible for producing sofa legs and bed legs, and the pipes with same diameter range but longer length in between 500-800mm are ideal for making table legs.

The metal pipe with diameter equal or bigger than Φ76mm and length equal or longer than 800mm are often used for making big decorative pipes for structure like railing balusters, and lampposts.

And there are more actual using ways to discover according to the production requirements.
