After an extremely hectic/busy week, Friday saw the end of yet another very successful “Tube and Wire” exhibition in Dusseldorf. Inductotherm Heating & Welding had a hugely successful show with an increase in sales leads and some excellent networking opportunities. We relished the opportunity to talk face to face with clients, old and new, offer them some hospitality and introduced them to our new virtual reality suite.
Having stands in both the TUBE and the WIRE sections enabled us to display our industry leading experience and product knowledge across both disciplines, thus demonstrating why we maintain our dominant position as the leading induction supplier in the industry - with solid sales leads coming in thick and fast on both stands.
We now start the process of contacting customers, ensuring we give each and every one a personalised service geared to meet their individual needs. We are strongly committed to excellent customer service not just at point of sale.
Inductotherm Heating & Welding were also very proud that one of our Sales Managers - Dave Clowes who was presented with a “Best Fundamentals Award” after writing and presenting his white paper at the International Wire & Machinery Association (IWMA) CabWire Industry Forum in Dusseldorf at the latter end of last year. “I was asked to participate to give a talk based on the "Fundamentals" of the wire market sector”. Says Dave Clowes Inductotherm Heating & Welding Sales Manager. “Amongst the topics covered by other speakers were subjects such as wire
drawing, cable design and so on, whilst I of course presented the fundamentals of Induction heating. Thank you to those that deemed me the worthy recipient, I feel somewhat humbled by the whole thing.” Inductotherm Heating & Welding LTD are immensely proud of Dave’s achievement and delighted that he readily shares his knowledge with our customers.
“We have had a great show and signed some significant deals”. Says Wayne Hine – Inductotherm Heating & Welding Sales Director. “The market seems very buoyant presently, which is splendid news for the industry at large. We have also celebrated the signing of new contracts and personal achievements of members our THERMATOOL and RADYNE sales staff.”
The rate of growth is now one of the biggest amongst EU countries, despite the uncertain political and economic scene at the beginning of 2016, investors see the future optimistic, and confidence of the companies is getting off the ground, as is productivity. Recognising this change, Thermatool has been able to secure four new HF Welding units in Spain.
During Tube Dusseldorf Hall 6 B40, Thermatool will be exhibiting the full range of HF Welders and equipment for the tube and pipe industry. With an unprecedented interest to our HCT Technology units, there is a definite stairway to productivity optimisation. Customers continue to acknowledge the quality & reliability of the Thermatool products and the accepted value in the longevity of the equipment operation through many, many, years - with an upturn in this market, producers are looking to the future opportunities through wise investment.
Thermatool is also upbeat about the future and will continue this presence in Spain to provide to our existing and new customers an efficient and high-quality service as always. Thermatool have plans to support the tube producers with a Technical Seminar in September / October 2016, tentatively to be held at the Inductotherm Iberia offices and Euromaquina (Thermatool Agents) factory in San Sebastian dates yet to be confirmed. If you are interested come and speak to us during Dusseldorf or contact us directly.
Inductotherm Heating & Welding Ltd, (Thermatool, Radyne, Banyard & Newelco Brands) is one of forty companies making up the Inductotherm Group, specialise in the design and manufacturing of high quality Induction, Tube, Pipe and Wire production equipment.
INDUCTOTHERM Heating & Welding Ltd has recently supplied its range of IROSS Fluxmanager Equipment to a number of leading pipe manufacturers within the OCTG sector. The IROSS Fluxmanager is designed for use in an array of pipe end heating applications for a variety of tubular goods including Drill Pipe, Casing, and API Pipe.
Ideally suited to the OCTG sector the IROSS Fluxmanager system is specifically designed for use in applications such as; Preheat for Welding, Preheat for Swaging, Hardening, Annealing, Removal of Cure & Coatings, and Friction Weld & Stress Reliving. The patented Fluxmanager unit utilises an efficient 50/60Hz low frequency system which provides deep, uniform temperature distribution, ID/OD, both laterally and longitudinally along extended lengths of pipe ends. The pipe end exits the coil immediately with an unrivalled and repeatable temperature uniformity of +/-25°C (77°F) – No soak time is required.
The IROSS Fluxmanager system has quickly become recognised and adopted into the OCTG sector as standard equipment and when compared with traditional medium frequency pipe end heating techniques, the IROSS Fluxmanager allows for far greater control of end heating, with a shaped intensifier to concentrate power on the work piece. The system heats within tight specifications at a reduced cycle time and easily adapts to O.D. variation.
Additionally only 6 coil sizes are required to cover the entire range of OCTG pipe diameters. The shaped flux concentrator allows for completely repeatable results even when the pipe is placed non-concentrically in the coil itself. Infrared, thermal imaging and intuitive data logging functionality can be specified by the customer in order to satisfy the stringent quality requirements within the OCTG market.
