Tubes and Pipes Forming Process

Tubes and pipes forming is a process of converting slitted coils into Tubes and Pipes. It begins with the fitting of slitted coils on the an uncoiler drum, whereby it is uncoiled and fed through a joining and welding table to weld the ends of the strips together. The welded strips are then stored in an accumulator to collect sufficient steel strips to enable continuous Tubes/Pipes forming. Subsequently, the welded strips are fed through a leveller to be flattened. After levelling, the steel strips are fed through a series of rollers to form the steel strips into cylindrical profiles.

This cylindrical profiles are then welded using a high frequency induction welder. After cooling, these newly formed Tubes/Pipes are fed through a series of precision sizing rolls to form specified dimensions and tolerance. The formed Tubes/Pipe are then fed through a cutting unit to be cut into predetermined lengths.
