We plan and implement turnkey production plants for manufacturing spirally welded large pipes. The equipment meets the most demanding requirements in terms of diameter tolerances or welding gap, as well as being characterized by outstanding availability and productivity. Schuler offers progressive and high-performance solutions, precisely adapted and tailor-made to your requirements – from planning and consulting through to startup and service.
Combined forming and welding machine (online process)
Submerged arc welding from the inside and outside takes place directly after pipe forming.
Separate forming and welding machine (offline process)
After pipe forming and subsequent tack welding, the submerged arc welding process is performed from the inside and the outside on separate welding stands at speeds up to 12 meters/minute.
Conversion of existing online machines to the offline process
The objectives of such a conversion are to increase quality and productivity as well as improving safety at work and energy efficiency.
