A Major Tube Producer in North America, has invested in Thermatool equipment again. This tube producer supports a wide customer base spanning from automotive to furniture markets. With the overwhelming success of a previous installation of a Thermatool CFI HF Welder and an Alpha Flying Shear Cutoff, the company has selected these machines a second time for another mill to support the growing specialty tube demand in North America. Building on their commitment to quality and on-time delivery, Thermatool was chosen to support their goals for 2022 and beyond.
The Thermatool CFI HF Welder will ensure that they achieve stable weld heat input control from the most reliable solid-state tube and pipe welder on the market today. The patented Thermatool AutoMatch™ ensures full power output over a wide range of product sizes and stabilizes HF welding frequency over the full range of diameters and wall thicknesses produced. Operators depend on the ability to provide a stable welding frequency even when experiencing changes in the weld area set up, tube OD, wall thickness, and impeder material. Thermatool’s proven HF welder provides excellent speed and power regulation and process stability throughout the mill production range.
Alongside the CFI HF Welder, the Alpha Flying Shear Cutoff enables this customer to achieve higher productivity, closer tolerance cut lengths on the mill, and optimized cutting tool life. Perfect for heavy wall, high strength tube and pipe, Alpha Flying Shears are a great solution for demanding production requirements of shearing high strength tube at short cut lengths. With optimized blade life of up to 80,000 cuts on a vertical blade, there will be fewer mill stops and less open seam and scrap. The compact Alpha footprint will save factory space while achieving high mill speeds by using fully automated lubrication and batch processing controls. These are just a few of the advantages that make Alpha Flying Shears the most reliable and accurate high-speed flying shear cutoff available today.
Through the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies and proven process tools, this tube producer continues to deliver the highest quality products to an ever changing and demanding marketplace – requiring the ability to make tubes with increased strength to weight ratios.
“Our industry leading and advanced technologies across High Frequency Welders and Alpha Flying Shears gives tube and pipe producers the ability to grow and pivot into any industry or business they choose. We will be here for years to come and will support our customers for the long term to help them get the most value from their investments,” said Kris Livermore – Director for Thermatool Corp.
