How does ERW welding technology work?

A large variety of projects demand tubing at some point. Some require more specialist kinds to overcome challenges. When they need these types specifically, we are the team to contact. We are the foremost ERW steel tube supplier West Midlands has. As such, customers can depend on us to come through for them.

We use the machine technology for ERW welding for a purpose. It’s to realise the electromechanical system’s high frequency welding. The gear consists of a welding apparatus as well as a forming one. Normally, the first has two parts to it; the feed device and a high frequency generator. The aim is to create a strong current and also command it. The melting and extrusion component gets rid of the impurities and oxide found on the steel’s exterior.

Previously, the high frequency welded tube unit had a three loop. It went high frequency generator, solid state inverter, and then high frequency oscillator. Thanks to improvements, there is only a single loop these days. With the oscillator, you can alter the output power in numerous ways. You could use the reactance method or an autotransformer for example.

The feeding mechanism

Next, we’ll discuss the feeding device. Its function is to convey high frequency current to the tube. This includes electrode resistors, inductors, and contacts. Usually, the contact metal welds have copper tungsten electrode contact because of the wear-resistance. The resistor’s primary module is its magnetic core. It makes the tube’s inductance on the surface stronger. As a result it improves the welding speed and lowers the invalid current.

At Union Steel Tubes, we keep our service personal and friendly. When there’s a problem, you can speak to our team about it. They will answer all your questions and give you confidence. We’ll also help you to understand what our procedures involve. This way you can learn more about their characteristics.

We work very hard to be the go to ERW steel tube supplier West Midlands has. If we can be of assistance to you, please let us know.
