Tube Mill and Welding Process
Tube Mill is fine-tuned, fine-tunes, automated machinery that is fine tune to operate at a fixed rate (see Figure 1) and usually in high speed mode. Diameters of both the circular products being manufactured are pre-set because a fine tube welding process is employed for making these products. The processing output is usually a standard size product which is manufactured by passing through a fine-tuned nozzle that is shaped like an egg, so that the fine-tuned output is obtained as a perfect cylindrical shape. Some variations on this process can produce cylindrical objects that have sharp ends.
The production of these items is normally done using high quality stainless steel tubes that are cylindrical in nature and made to be long lasting. The tubes are laid flat on a work table, heated to expand their inner diameter to the desired value, cooled down to form a springy structure that seals each of the inner tubes. A piece of metal is inserted into one of the tubes, which gets pushed through the heat source to get them through the tube; thus, creating the required diameters for the specific item. To increase their diameter, a piece of welding steel is placed in the other tube.
Tube Mill is operated with the help of an electric motor, electrical spark ignition system, or gas torch; or with the help of manual control. Tube Mill produces items in standard, custom-curved diameter and high quality steel tubes that can be customized according to the client’s specifications. The size can be varied according to the need of customers. Tubemillows can be customized to manufacture paper products, rubber tubes, textile threads, shoe-leather, metal papers etc. Some companies also use a combination of these products for various applications.
The machine can be used for straightening, welding, riveting or cutting. The main benefit of using this machine is that it is easy to operate, has good production rate, has high efficiency, reliable and provides high output in the shortest time. A tube mill is a handy tool that can be used in any industry, especially where precision and speed are a must.
Tube Mill is similar to a welding machine in its basic mechanism. When the input voltage is applied to the machine, a welding process occurs. The machine uses the power from the battery as well as the supplied 12V AC and generates an output of high pressure and temperature in the pipe that are fed through the machine. This creates a sufficient hot atmosphere in the tube to ensure proper welding process.
Tube Mill works under the principle of continuous feeding of a material into the machine that requires welding, a process called ‘smeling’. The welding process eliminates the need for direct contact between the work piece and the welding area of the machine. In addition, this allows the weld to be done on different surfaces including metal, copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel, and more. Another advantage of using this machine is that it offers a much faster welding process than the traditional methods. This is because the process of heating and cooling of the work piece and pipe eliminates most of the issues related to manual control over the temperature. The biggest downside to the tube mill is that it can only be used for small welding jobs or very specific kinds of jobs where the amount of heat generated would be minimal.
