January, 2006. Thermatool Corp. East Haven, CT, USA announces the successful commissioning of a CFD 1000 (1000 KW output) Dual Capability Contact and Induction Welder at a new plant in Asia. The welder is installed on an 8 inch (203.2 mm) to 20 inch (508.0 mm) pipe mill to produce up to maximum 5/8 inch (16 mm) wall thickness API and structural pipes. The mill utilizes the FFX forming method which was supplied by Nakata Mfg. Co. Ltd. of Osaka, Japan. The mill is shown welding the start-up size of a 8.622 inch (219 mm) O.D. pipe with a .276 inch (7 mm) wall thickness with the contact process. The dual welder enables the producer to take advantage of the best aspects of both contact and induction welding by producing the larger diameters with the energy saving contact process and the smaller diameters with induction. Changeover from contacts to coil can be made in one half hour and requires no internal adjustments of the welder. In addition to the CFD 1000 Welder the line is also equipped with two 600 KW 1 kHz Thermatool VIP Annealing Units. For additional information on how Thermatools dual welding units can assist you with your large diameter pipe production needs, please contact Thermatool Corp., 31 Commerce Street, East Haven, CT 06512.
