Today’s tube and pipe manufacturers are required to have increased versatility in the creation of products for their customers that also adhere to the strictest quality standards. To date, most welding equipment has been used in singular applications that restrict a manufacturer’s ability to produce multiple products on the same production line. Meanwhile, the most competitive manufacturers have adopted new, variable output, precise heat input control, HF welding machines that give them the flexibility to win more business by producing multiple products as orders come in.
To meet this growing challenge, Thermatool has become the leading producer of variable frequency HF welders, offering an industry-leading range of welding frequencies. The stabilized power output is available from 50 kW to 2000 kW, which allows manufacturers to produce 1.5” diameter pipes in the morning and 3.5” pipes in the afternoon, combined with Thermatool’s easy-to-use operator console that stores recipes for future use.
According to the Plant Engineer of the Cooling Equipment Manufacturer, “With our Thermatool machine, we’re utilizing 54% less energy compared to the weld wheel system we used to have. In addition, we’re not consuming any power at all on standby mode. Plus, we’ve seen our run time percentage reduced by 50.1% while our mill speed increased by exactly 25%. It’s miles ahead of what we’ve had in the past.”
Thermatool’s machines not only offer the widest range of frequencies, but they also give operators the ability to maintain a stable welding frequency and stable power output, even at low power levels. That means every tube has the same weld quality, from startup to full speed to shut-down, and scrap is kept to an absolute minimum.
