The OTO HSU mill is Fives’ innovative direct forming mill for the production of hollow square and rectangular tubes for construction and furniture products. Designed with efficiency in mind, this mill produces high quality tubes at a lower production cost.

Maximum flexibility and productivity

Using high levels of automation with a full electric control of the stands, our range of OTO HSU mills offers a maximum speed of 120 m/min for tubes from 20 x 20 mm to 150 x 150 mm – and always with precise control of the corner radius.
