T&H Lemont has developed a new model of weld box, model W25 HD, for welded tube and pipe mills. Designed to guide the tube or pipe through the welding stage, it’s suitable for small- and medium-sized mills.
A heavy-duty unit, it is intended to be a replacement for chuck-style weld boxes when processing high-yield-strength material. The design accommodates the existing weld roll tooling from original three-roll weld boxes. It has a single-point lubrication system on the operator side for convenience and safety—the operator doesn’t have to reach over or across the unit to lubricate it.
The unit has interchangeable yokes to accommodate product ODs from 1.250 to 3.500 in. and all the features are independently adjustable. It has a base plate that can be adjusted on three axes, single-point adjustments for each roll, and can be set up for either Y-high or Y-low roll orientation
