Control system assists in nor-
malizing pipe weld seams to
The latest pipe alloys, manufacturing
methods, and thicker walls make normalizing weld seams on oil and gas pipe more
challenging than before.
EFD Induction has developed an
improved control system for weld seam
normalizing. The system provides three
functions crucial for successful, safe, and
cost-effective seam normalizing, according to the company. The functions are
accurate power control, automatic coil
positioning, and various safety, quality,
and communication features.
