New welding line for Arvedi Tubi Acciaio

Arvedi Tubi Acciaio has successfully taken into operation a high-frequency tube welding line (ERW) at its location in Cremona, Italy, upgraded by SMS group, a group of companies internationally active in plant construction and mechanical engineering for the steel and nonferrous metals industry. The line can now handle tubes of up to 14 inches in diameter. To be able to use wider strip coils, improve the rolling conditions and secure competitiveness in the long term, Arvedi had commissioned SMS group to upgrade its existing 12 ¾-inch tube welding line to a welding line for up to 14-inch tubes. The upgrade also included the exchange of the cutting device in the profile tube cutting line complete with the associated controls.

The upgraded equipment allows Arvedi Tubi Acciaio to expand its portfolio in terms of product types and dimensions. It will not only be possible to have a greater outside tube diameter of up to 14 inches, but to also produce square tubes of up to 300 x 300 millimeters and rectangular tubes of up to 400 x 200 millimeters.

With this tube welding plant upgrade, Arvedi is placing the focus of production on high-grade and specialist products, mainly for use in the automotive, petrochemical, thermal and construction industries as well as in mechanical engineering.
