Kusakabe delivers the largest, fastest and smallest tube and pipe mills
will be considerably higher than the current 800ft per minute when cutting 10ft lengths. To achieve high production speeds the most critical component of the tube mill is the cut off – Kusakabe offers a range of cut offs for this purpose and the high-speed punch cut off is the one selected for this application. Kusakabe has also recently developed the world smallest return flow (back flush type) impeder for automotive stabiliser tube production. Kusakabe has supplied several Asian countries with tube mills for the production of automotive stabiliser tubing. Being able to produce small diameter stabiliser tubing provides the producer with a large cost advantage. Stabiliser tubing is made from Boron steels, for example 34Mn B5, and as such it is critical to keep the coolant away from the weld seam during the welding process. The return flow impeder is critical for the manufacture of small diameter, thick walled, exotic steel tubing and achieving a high-quality weld seam on a continuous basis. Kusakabe aims to offer the best-in class tube or pipe mill manufacturer to assist them to achieve their specific tube production goals.
