Tube Mill Production Line


The tube & pipe mill machine is an automation system to produce pipes, square tubes, shaped tubes

Tube mill Process description:

Rolling and welding
Firstly, the stainless steel strips are made to gone through various quality checks and are trimmed at edges. The strips pass through the number of rollers as per the required size. In the tubes mill, the strip is gradually converted into the tubular shape. The fitted welding machine is then used to weld trim edges of the strip welding process. In this way, rolled pipes and tubes are formed.

The cleaning and heating phase
The rolled stainless steel pipes thus manufactured are cut to the required lengths depending upon the industrial demand. These stainless pipes and tubes are then subjected to cleaning to remove the dirt. Further, a heat treatment is given to these rolled pipes and tubes to remove the stresses that may occur due to welding and formation processes. Heat treatment is given on the continuously rolling hearth furnace. The furnace is fitted with temperature recorders and controllers. After the heat treatment process, the stainless steel tubes and pipes are straightened and subjected to pickling for removing scales from the surface.

Cold- drawing process
In some cases, the required size may not be obtained from the mill directly. Then, the cold operation process can be used to obtain the desired size. In cold drawing process, the tubes or pipes are coated with oxalic and soap solution. This solution acts as a lubricant to reduce friction while cold drawing operation.

Finishing process
The drawn-out tube or stainless steel pipe is then subjected to cleaning, heat treatment, pickling and straightening. The computerized ink jet marking machine is used to do the marking on the finished pipes or tubes. 

Tube mills and pipe mills serve an array of industries and applications, including:

  • Electrical conduitGas transmission
  • Liquid transportation
  • Oil and gas drilling
  • Irrigation
  • Structural tubing
  • Petrochemical pipe
  • Medical
  • Hydroform tubing
  • Mechanical tubing
  • Exhaust pipe
