Tube and Pipe Training and Education

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

  • Straightness

  • Ovality Issues

  • Marking issues

  • Tube rollover

  • Surging of mill line

  • Welding problems

  • Long setup 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 many of the issues found out in the industry. 

Roll-Kraft has been doing tube and pipe training seminars for over 35 years. This is why we 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.

Roll-Kraft’s tube and pipe seminars are designed to present universal facts and procedures, matched to the experience of your group, and develop a standard for your particular company. The “art” is combined with a scientific approach, which results in faster and more predictable setups and makes troubleshooting an easier process. We pride ourselves on the development and implementation of methods that have proven successful and reliable in the industry.

Interested in learning more about what is covered at one of our tube and pipe seminars? Read below for a typical seminar agenda.

Tube and Pipe Training and Education: Seminar Preparation

Programs are usually held in a conference room, lunchroom, or training facility at the customer’s plant. The training room will be required to have a screen, computer projector with sound, or separate sound speakers, to hook up to our laptop for the PowerPoint presentation, and a marking board. The training room should be set up with tables and chairs, in classroom format. Sample equipment, such as spare driven stands, side pass stands, or any tooling from your stock, if available, would be beneficial to use as part of the “show and tell,” as the trainer goes through the program.


Each attendee will receive a Seminar Guide Book to follow along throughout the presentation. 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.

Tube and Pipe Training and Education: Seminar Agenda

The classroom portion consists of approximately 6-8 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.

A second day of on-line training can be arranged for the next day, or at a later date, 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.

Who Should Attend:

In order to maximize this opportunity, a wide variety of personnel should be in attendance. There will be information applicable to many areas of operation. You will want everyone involved to be working together to achieve a better quality product in less time.

Specific personnel should include:

  • Tube and Mill Operators

  • Engineering Staff

  • Maintenance Personnel

  • Tool Room Personnel

  • Supervisors

  • Management

Pricing Schedule:

Pricing depends on one of two options, classroom seminar only, or classroom seminar and one day on line training the day after.  Once that info is obtained, an all-inclusive price will be quoted for the training. 

Services are on a first-come, first-served basis and is only confirmed with a customer’s purchase order after checking with our sales staff for available dates.
