January 2014 - T&H Lemont Completes Commissioning of Welded Carbon Tube Mill
T&H Lemont has recently commissioned a Model WU35M-11 High Frequency Welded mechanical tube mill for a repeat North American customer. T&H Lemont was chosen for this project based on successful installation and commissioning of other mills for this customer over the last 20 years. The WU35M tube mill has a tube size range of 2.000" OD to 6.625" OD round tube at yields up to 65,000 psi. The gauge ranges for these sizes is from .090" to .250". In addition, the mill is designed to form and weld 5.750" OD X .375" wall tubing for a custom application. The mill will produce product at speeds up to 300 fpm.
For reduced change-over times, the mill includes a number of quick-change features. The design of the mill includes a permanent third stand to minimize the time required for sub-plate rermoval and replacement. When a change-over is required, the sub-plates are disconnected from the universals utilizing a hydraulically operated disconnect. The sub-plates can then be removed with an overhead crane. When the second set of sub-plates are installed, the sub-plates are moved into position and located to the universals utilizing the same hydraulic system.

August 2013 - T&H Lemont Ships and Commisions New HF Tube Mill
T&H Lemont has recently shipped and commissioned a WU35M-11 Quick Change, High Frequency Tube Mill. The mill was purchased by a repeat customer who currently operates other T&H Lemont tube mills.
For this customer, T&H Lemont designed and built the mill with two features to decrease change-over time and increase productivity. The first feature was the design and construction of the mill with the Third Stand Quick Change System.
The second feature designed for this mill by T&H Lemont is the AutoSet System of precise, automated roll adjustment. The System is designed to minimize set-up times.
March 2013 - T&H Lemont Acquires New Large Diameter 4 Axis Turning Center
T&H Lemont is pleased to announce the full production launch of its newly acquired Hwacheon Hi-Tech 850YMC CNC Turning Center. This addition continues to extend T&H Lemont's reach into large tool markets by expanding their overall diameter and length capabilities to hard turn and finish products up to 45" in diameter as well as products 100" in length.
The demand for turning and finishing these larger tooling items has been growing as customers expand production in SBQ Bars and into larger diameter tooling for API and Oil Country Tubular Products.
The Hwacheon Hi-Tech 850 CNC Lathes were developed to meet todays demands for superior turning center performance. Its distinctive design allows the Hi-Tech 850 to have the largest work capacity and spindle horsepower in its class. This extraordinarily large, well built lathe with multiple, powered 4th Axis machining turret stops has proven to make short work of large complex shafts, straightener rolls, as well as roll tooling for large diameter pipe mills. Programming the machine can be easily handled remotely with CAD/CAM interfaces or manually using conversational inputs.
