Kent Corporation – North Royalton, OH has supplied a second coil end welder to a large roll-former in India. This is one of over 58 Countries Kent has supplied machinery to for eliminating coil related down time. The Coil end welder eliminates rethreading the roll form, tube and stamping lines to reduce scrap, tooling wear and the down time spent rethreading the line. The coil end welder has been a huge improvement over the existing methods used by this customer, which has resulted in better, faster and more consistent end welds. The machine offers a three bladed crop shear that gives a distortion free cut. The higher quality sheared ends results in easier and better fit up for smoother end welds that will pass through tooling with no problems. New advances in the TIG welding technology allow for welding mild steels, aluminum, copper, and coated materials.
Kent Corporation has been providing quality entry equipment, strip end welders, accumulators, high speed cold saws and tube mill consumables to the strip processing, tube mill, roll forming and stamping industries for more than 40 years. Kent has delivered over 6,000 pieces of equipment that are currently running successfully, with applications that vary from .008”(.2mm) to .750” (19mm) thick and from strip widths of 0.5” (12.7mm) to over 80” (2032mm wide).
