Tube Mill and Pipe Mill Training and Education

Click here to read about our upcoming training events as well as recaps of past training sessions.

Are you having problems with your tube and pipe tooling or machine such as:

  • Straightness
  • End-flare
  • Profile issues
  • Lack of consistent product
  • Long set-up process
  • Roll wear


If so, you are NOT alone.  Roll-Kraft not only understands these types of issues, we can fix them for you too!  

However, wouldn’t you rather have the skills and abilities to fix these issues on your own, with your own people?  Take a look at the benefits of having Roll-Kraft conduct a training seminar at your facility.  During the seminar, we would engage your team to determine the root causes of your tube and pipe problems as we teach best-practices.  Training like this is an investment that is essential for your future.

Our experienced staff at Roll-Kraft have heard and seen it all. We have been doing tube and pipe training seminars for over 30 years. This is why Roll-Kraft will not conduct any training until we fully understand your expectations. This is extremely important due to the types of training we offer: hands on training, right on your mill, in the classroom with visual aids, or both. We will even train your staff on why tube and pipe tooling is designed in a certain way.

Tube and Pipe Training and Education: Seminar Preparation

Programs are traditionally held in a conference room, lunch room, or training facility at your plant. “In-house” seminars allow the greatest opportunity for maximum attendance. Prior to the seminar date, a 2-crate display with the visual aids will be shipped to the seminar site. Our trainer will arrive and set up the display the day before the scheduled program. 

Your site should be able to accommodate a P.A. system, 6-ft. square screen, slide projector, marker board, tooling, and other supportive equipment. Each attendee receives an individual Seminar Guide Book. Our program is one of the most comprehensive and successful ways to train your personnel.

Our trainer will also tour your factory, taking time to review the configuration of your tube and pipe mills in order to best customize the presentation.

  • Mill Configuration
  • Tube and Pipe Terminology
  • Alignment & Set Up Tools

Tube and Pipe Training and Education: Seminar Agenda

Each attendee must be registered prior to the day of training, so adequate supplies are available. There will be approximately 4-6 hours of classroom study and adequate time allowed for questions and answers and input from the audience. Content of the program can readily be adjusted to focus on areas of your local interest.

The afternoon session involves a walk to the mills on the shop floor, when feasible, where the methods taught in the classroom can be fully demonstrated, “hands-on,” and all questions answered. This will cement the concepts discussed throughout the day and move the theory of the training to the reality of the mill.

Each attendee will be awarded a certificate of completion, which will be mailed after the seminar. This will provide documentation of training to satisfy the ever-challenging quality requirements of your customers.
