March 2013 - T&H Lemont Acquires New Large Diameter 4 Axis Turning Center
T&H Lemont, an Inductotherm Group company, 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.
February 2013 - T&H Lemont Ships 6-Inch Pipe Mill to Mexico
T&H Lemont, an Inductotherm Group company, has recently shipped a Model WU60-11 High Frequency Welded Pipe Mill to a major pipe producer in Mexico. The customer was looking to expand their capabilities in the API market and chose T&H Lemont based on engineering capabilities, manufacturing expertise and value. As an example,after careful engineering analysis, T&H Lemont determined that the existing inboard and outboard castings could be utilized on the new mill. Each driven stand was retrofitted with new shafts, bearings, bearing blocks and single point adjustment; in effect, providing virtually new driven stands throughout the mill at a significant savings to the customer.
The tube size range of the WU60 Mill is from 2.500" to 6.625" round tube with wall thickness ranging from .060" to .280", with material yields meeting API specifications. Along with round tubing, the mill is designed to add shaping capabilities at a later date. The mill is capable of producing pipe at speeds up to 200 feet per minute.
December 2012 - T&H Lemont Completes Shipment of a Coiled Tubing Mill
T&H Lemont, an Inductotherm Group company, has recently shipped a Model WU45-12 High Frequency Welded Coiled Tubing Mill for a customer in the United States. Our customer is a leading producer of Coiled Tubing for shipment worldwide. The end product is used for increasing productivity in existing oil and natural gas mills. The tube size range of the WU45 mill is from 1.750" to 4.500" OD round tubing. The customer had selected a 4.500" maximum OD to be prepared for any future expansion of coiled tubing specifications. With five breakdown stands, the mill is designed for high strength materials with maximum yields of 120,000 ksi. While the mill is designed to produce tubing at speeds of up to 200 feet per minute, actual production rates are limited by the auxilliary equipment. This is the second mill of this type purchased from T&H Lemont by this customer. His purchasing descision was based on the success and efficiency of the original mill.
