Driven by more stringent product specifications and increasing demands on product quality, precise process control in HF welding has become imperative in the development and operation of the modern tube and pipe production systems. It is crucial that each tube or pipe made in the mill is of the same high quality. To ensure repeatable and reproducible product performance, while maintaining high yields, process automation plays a vital role. Not all tube and pipe mills are in a position to achieve world-class HF welding process control.
In the tube and pipe industry, precise HF welding process control combined with automation can lead to several benefits, including increased productivity, reduced energy consumption, improved product quality, high yield, and reduced scrap. By eliminating human error, statistical quality levels are increased. Automated processes allow the operator to run closer to optimal conditions at all times, resulting in increased efficiency and cost savings.
