Thermatool, located in East Haven, Conn., has supplied a 200-kW HAZControl™ technology welding machine and an Alpha® Flying Shear Mach 2 cutoff to Kubiec-Conduit, Ecuador. The two new pieces of equipment are used for high-speed production of conduit.
The welding machine allows the operator to select an optimal welding frequency and to maintain the selected power and frequency through a mill run at any given time. The recipe-driven HF welding system also gives operators the ability to repeat Vee length using the Vee Axis™ control.
The cutoff cuts conduit at up to 500 FPM. It is fitted with a TRC series double-cut dieset for inline, dimple-free cutting.
