spiral pipe mill at Evraz
Germany-based Schuler and Evraz North
America have launched a spiral pipe mill
at Evraz’s facility in Regina, Sask. Schuler
spent three weeks training maintenance
staff for software and hardware about the
line and its components.
Evraz, a producer of steel products for
rail, energy, and industrial end markets,
bought and relocated a line to Canada
which was already installed in the U.S.
To modernize the line, Schuler supplied
a coil cart and decoiler, as well as roller beams for the forming station. At the
heart of the decoiler are two coil stands,
each with two servomotors and proportional valves.
The line will be used to produce spiral
pipes measuring 39 to 79 ft. long with
diameters from 2 to 5 ft. The pipes will
have wall thicknesses of 0.2 to 1 in. and
weight up to 26 tons.
