With six thousand employees, Tagmet is today one of the leading companies in the pipe industry, both nationally and internationally. The mill produces basically all types of seamless steel pipes within the dimensional range of 73 to 273 millimeters, including high-strength pipes with special material properties to meet the ever-growing demands of the market.

Over the years, trustful cooperation between Tagmet and SMS group has led to the continuous further development of the technology in the PQF® seamless pipe mill. Renewed proof of this cooperation is the latest order placed by TMK for the supply of a newly developed mandrel thrust block for the cone-type piercing mill. The thrust block is currently being assembled in the SMS group workshop in Germany.
