UNIVERSAL TUBE & ROLLFORM EQUIPMENT CORPORATION, a world-wide supplier of used tube, pipe & rollform machinery was commissioned by a returning customer in the first quarter of 2016 to rebuild an Abbey Etna 3X tube mill.
Universal Tube custom built a new weld section for the Abbey Etna 3X tube mill. The custom built base was topped with a new 2-roll weld box and an EPU (seam guide). Universal Tube built the base, installed the weld box, EPU and a new double scarfing unit with automatic quick lift tool holders to complete the weld base components. The weld base was then installed in-line with the tube mill.
Universal Tube & Rollform implemented a complete re-work of the Abbey Etna 3X tube mill to match their customers’ existing line. The re-work included new spindles as needed, all new bearings and seals, re-worked side closers, along with new AC motors and new AC vector control system provided by Universal Controls Group.
For over a quarter of a century Universal Tube & Rollform has established itself as a global leader in the metalworking industry supplying quality used tube, pipe & rollform machinery. This latest order is an example of how they have continually expanded their capabilities to better serve the requirements of an ever-growing and diverse customer base. Their partnership with Universal Controls Group, a rapidly growing controls supplier, has enabled them to offer a wide array of cost efficient services, unmatched by others.
To compliment Universal Tube & Rollform’s used tube mill and rollforming lines, Universal Controls Group offers expandable mill control systems that are pre-engineered or custom built to customer specifications. UCG’s pre-engineered systems can cut delivery time in half and keep costs low.
Universal Tube & Rollform will exhibit at the FABTECH trade show in November. Visit booth #C10436 to discuss your requirements.
