radius on square tubes
The edge radii for stainless steel square tubes and stainless steel rectangular tubes are usually the content of the questions, in expert discussions and also decision-making criteria. How to use this type of stainless steel profiles. Sharp-edged radii in the case of stainless steel shape pipes are relative statements and perceptions.
Radius shape at square tubes

Some of the used rectangular tubes need fine surfaces. It demands on their purpose were they are needed. Pharmaceutical machinery needs surfaces with Ra less than 0,4my.
Radii polished for square and rectangular tubes
The stronger the material thickness, the more the edge radius emerges. About 3 times the material
thickness of the profile gives the edge radius.
The stronger the material thickness, the more the edge radius emerges. About 3 times the material thickness of the profile gives the edge radius
Edge radii for stainless steel rectangular tubes 60x40x3 and square tubes 80x80x2
Stainless steel tubes with small radii are severely limited by the manufacturing process. The common radii are due to the forming process. Due to the increasing material thickness, the radii are 1.5-3 times the material thickness. That means with a 2mm thick square tube the radius is approx. 3mm.
