Energy savings and increased mill speeds for Marcegaglia UK

In August 2017, Marcegaglia UK installed a new EFD Induction 400kW WELDAC high frequency tube welding system on the largest pipe mill at Dudley plant.

General Manager, Nick Haycock, commented: “We really needed to get our mill speeds up and we saw the EFD Induction welder as the best solution for us. The single cabinet design was also a major benefit due to space availability.”

The new EFD Induction welder, which replaced an old Thermionic valve welder, has resulted in considerable energy savings as well as increased mill speeds.

Every year, Marcegaglia’s Dudley plant produces 70,000 tonnes of carbon steel welded tubes, ranging in diameter from 12,7 mm to 88.9 mm. The WELDAC’s wide automatic matching range has enabled Marcegaglia to produce all sizes on this particular mill – from 35 mm to 88.9 mm, with no limitations and also allows for an increase of machine capability. During 2018, Marcegaglia will introduce new sizes to its product range, offering more variety to its customers.
