Heavy-Duty Shearwelder Goes in at Maverick Tube

Friday, April 12, 2002
 
Guild International, Inc., Bedford, OH, has completed startup of its heavy-duty Model DMI 650-52 Shearwelder at Maverick Tube LLC, Blythville, AK. The unit is installed on a 16-in.-diameter pipe mill that can handle strip up to 0.650-in. thick at up to 100,000 PSI yield strength. The shearwelder comprises entry and exit passline rolls, heavy-duty entry and exit side guides, a hydraulic shear rated to 145 tons, and weld clamps mounted on an indexing platen to allow for automatic strip fitup. A pair of gas-metal-arc-welding stations weld in the center of the strip and on the front edge of the strip simultaneously, to minimize weld time. Learn more at www.guildint.com.
