T&H Lemont recently shipped a new motorized seam orientation stand (SOS), model 280/6, which is designed to work on tube in diameters from 0.750 to 3.500 in. and wall thicknesses from 0.028 to 0.250 in.
SOS units compensate for any drift in the weld seam location. Using two vertical rolls that are adjusted by the operator, the SOS aligns the seam at a specified location on the circumference, usually top dead center, to align the weld seam with inductors used for inline annealing and sensors used for nondestructive testing. It also assists in maintaining the tube’s straightness and in complying with any customer requests for a specific seam location.
T&H Lemont manufactures SOS units that handle tube from 0.750 to 14 inches in diameter. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or RFQs.
