Tube Mill

Tube mill is of very rigid construction to produce tubing of high strength steels with D/T ratios up to 7.
TIMB can supply tube mills for all forms of specialized tubing for automotive structural, furniture and energy sector

  • Tube Diameter Range: 10 mm to 250 mm
  • Thickness Range: 1 mm to 16 mm
  • Materials: Ferrous and Non-Ferrous(Carbon steel, Stainless steel, Aluminum, Brass, Copper and Alloys)
A typical high productive setup consists of following elements
  • Double Decoiler
  • Automatic strip end joiner
  • Accumulator
  • Forming stands
  • Finpass stands
  • High frequency induction welder
  • Squeeze roll
  • OD bead remover
  • Cooling chamber
  • Sizing section
  • Turk heads
  • Flying cut off
  • Runout table
To achieve the productivity and quality TIMB designs and manufactures the appropriate equipment for the diameter range as in the below matrix for Ferrous and Non-Ferrous material (carbon-steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper and alloys).
Model Diameter Min.(mm) Diameter Max.(mm) Thickness(mm)
TM 41.28 12.7 41.28 0.8-4
TM 76.20 25.4 76.20 1-6
TM 101.60 44.45 101.60 2-10
TM 168 88 168 4-12
TM 250 101 250 6-16

Based on an intelligent modular design the individual machines can be configured to suite specific production line requirement. Also additional auxiliary equipment’s like facing and chamfering, inspection equipment’s, Bundling and packing etc can be integrated to provide a fully automated customized solution.
