Large caliber straight double submerged arc welding pipe joints uses the most advanced domenstic hydraulic bending process, the bending machine is duplex structure, maximum lenght up to 16mm, the pressure of 1600 tons, single-equipment weighing about more than 400 tons, machinable diameter of 325-3250 mm and the wall thickness 6-30 mm of ordinary and special steel pipe.
Plate Edge Milling Machine
The milling machine mills the two sides of the plate to exacting standards in order to meet width , edging and groove shape specifications.
Nominal pressure of squeeze head: 2x2000 ton
Movement for each squeeze: 2200mm(max)
Thickness range of steel plate: 6-50mm
Edge Crimping Machine
The crimping machine crimps the edges of the plate to form the required curvature.
Milling units: 4 sets
Nominal diameter of cutter head : cD800mm
Groove types: X type, I type and K type
Tack Welding Machine
The two edges of the open seam pipe are brought together by the tack welding machine. then welded by the tack welder using a metal active - gas arc welding("MAG" )process.
Adjustment for roller beam:
Roller beams: 9
Welding method: C02/ArMAGwelding
Welding tracking system : laser tracking
Utilizes the "JCO" process to bend and form the crimped steel plate into a steel pipe.
Nominal pressure: 5200 ton
Main cylinders: 6
Diameter of formed pipe:508mm ≤D≤1422mm
Interior Welding Machine
The interior longitudinal seam of the pipe is welded from the inside by fixing 4 welding heads while moving pipe and using submerged-arc welding process.
