Metallwerk Sundern Otto Brumberg GmbH & Co have recently installed another 350kW HF welder with HAZControl technology from Thermatool. Based in Sundern Germany. The independent high quality steel tube manufacturer is said to be “delighted” with the purchase, as Metallwerk are “a key part of a series of strategic investments being made at MESU”.
MESU’s family orientated company is rich in over a century’s worth of expertise in tube product technology and solutions. Automotive, Leisure, Furniture, Medical, Lighting and Technical are just some of the key industries they supply to, working on DIN EN 10305-3 and DIN EN 10305-5 standards with precision tentatively in mind.
Mr Burgard at Mesu explains,” We produce longitudinally welded precision steel tubes on our state-of-the-art pipe welding machines linked to other production processes such as CNC cutting tools, which strictly adhere to the tightest of tolerances. Our advanced processing and quality assurance ensure optimal components and timely delivery during manufacturing. Individual requirements are in the best of hands with us: These include applications that require high tube strength at low weight, such as tubes made of multiphase steel with high deformation properties or micro-alloyed special grades. MESU makes a decisive contribution to finding environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient solutions for his customers end products. Therefore we have to work with world leader partners. We enjoy the fast and professional know-how of Mr Hasan Simsek and his team from the company Thermatool”.
Mr Simsek of Thermatool added, “From having purchased yet another welder from us, we can clearly see MESU are happy with Thermatool’s products and support. We look forward to our continued relationship and our ambition to always strive in supplying the highest caliber welding solutions on the market”.
Inductotherm Heating & Welding Ltd is one of forty companies making up the INDUCTOTHERM GROUP and is the European manufacturing and technical headquarters for Thermatool, Radyne, Banyard and Newelco, producing a diverse range of induction heating and welding equipment specifically suited to the metal processing industry.
Thermatool has recently completed supply and installation of a CFI Solid State High Frequency Welder at Marcegaglia UK’s manufacturing facility in Dudley, West Midlands UK.
The 200KW Solid State HF Welder was selected by Marcegaglia UK as a result of an upgrade project to its electro-welded tube sections. Mark Thomas, Production Manager at Marcegaglia UK comments; “The decision to upgrade was not taken lighlty and involved a lengthy discussion, evaluation and decision process. We were all given opportunities to evaluate the welder and Thermatool were happy to undertake and provide energy consumption comparisons. Following an initial production assessment we have seen that the right decision was made.”
Thermatool engineers were at hand to provide on-site support, service and operator training throughout the installation and commissioning process. Wayne Hine, Thermatool Director of Sales adds; “ Following acceptance of the CFI welder now in production at Marcegaglia UK’s facility, we will now continue to work with the production staff providing further equipment training packages at Thermatool’s European headquarters in Basingtoke. The addition of a Thermatool CFI Solid State HF Welder to Marcegaglia UK’s electro welded tube sections ultimately allows for a greater throughput of tube being produced per shift, controlling repeatability and efficiently delivering an improved, value added end product.”
Marcegaglia UK, part of the worldwide Marcegaglia Group, is devoted to the manufacturing of high quality electro-welded carbon steel tubes for a wide range of applications. The production lines at Marcegaglia Uk are equipped to offer a wide range of specific tube finishes. Tubes are non-destructive eddy-current tested inline to prevent weld seam defects - Additionally, destructive testing includes tensile, flare and flattening. The 28,000m2 plant has a yearly output capacity of over ninety thousand tonnes of finished products, making the UK’s largest precision tubes manufacturer.
