Welded Tube Orwell on Carbide
At Welded Tubes, carbide inserted mill rolls were the only rational and logical choice for our high volume runners. Carbide has reduced our need for frequent and costly regrinds and gives us the opportunity to keep the tooling in house where it is needed. We are seeing about ten times more than our normal expected tool life before needing any regrind attention. The surface quality is immensely improved by the reduced friction given from carbide as opposed to the standard D-2 roll. The reduced friction helps to eliminate roll marks for our plating critical customers. Carbide inserted mill tooling has helped us in many ways to ensure our customers are happy with the quality of product we have supplied them and keeping the customers happy is what keeps our shop doors open.
