Tube production: Increase of welding speed by 50% due to strip edging

QUATTRO/600 | The strip edging machine of the series QUATTRO600 trims the strip edges by metal-cutting working. It is equipped with up to twelve tools and machines strips with a maximum width of 600 mm (32.6").

The strip edging machine of the series QUATTRO600 trims the strip edges by metal-cutting working. It is equipped with up to twelve tools and machines strips with a maximum width of 600 mm (32.6").

Julius strip edging machines are often integrated into tube welding lines to correct exceedances of strip width tolerances, to improve unevenness, to remove   coatings from the strip edges and to reduce the V angle.

As a result, the energy input can be reduced, the welding speed can be increased and the quality of the weld seam can be improved.

Latest measurements have shown that the welding speed could be increased by 50% thanks to the integration of a Julius strip edging machine.
