Guild International completes start up of their heavy-duty model DMI 650-52 Shearwelder at Maverick Tube LLC in Blythville, Arkansas. This is the 11th shearwelder supplied by Guild since 1997 for strip 1/2 thick or thicker.

This shearwelder is installed on Mavericks 16 diameter Pipe Mill, which can handle strip up to .650 thick at 100,000 PSI yield.

The shearwelder consists of entry and exit passline rolls, heavy-duty entry and exit side guides, a hydraulically operated shear, which generates 145 tons of force, and weld clamps mounted on an indexing platen to allow for automatic strip fit up. Dual MIG welding was supplied, which provides for one weld torch to start welding in the center of the strip, the second weld torch starts to weld on the front edge of the strip, thereby reducing the weld time by 50%.

This 57,000 Lb. machine was ordered July 3, 2001, and Guild shipped this heavy-duty machine to Maverick Tube December 10, 2001. Guilds extensive experience in entry equipment allows for quick deliveries on rugged, well designed equipment.
