Induction welders for large mills
In 2002 EFD Induction China began delivering equipment manufactured at our plant in Shangai. Since then we have supplied more than ten made-in Shangai EFD Induction machines.
The results so far have exceeded our highest expectations. Customers are delighted, not only with the equipment, but also with the quality of our after-sales service. Indeed, we have already received repeat orders. The strong position gained by EFD Induction China is confirmed by recent orders from automotive sub-suppliers such as GKN, the Waxiang Group and FAW-Koyo. Chinese demand for EFD Induction Minacs continues to grow. As does demand for our equipment for tube welding. A particularly interesting development is the strong demand for Weldac welders. This growth has been helped by our ability to make our own supporting units for Weldacs and annealers. This reduces prices for complete units, making us even more competitive. Our most important order to date—for a 1200 kW Weldac and three 800 kW annealers—was recently received from the Tianjin Shuangjie Pipe Company. The customer is currently establishing a 24-inch mill in Tianjin province, about 200 km from Beijing. When completed the mill will be the largest of its kind in China—a perfect way for us to prove the suitability of our welders for large mills in China’s booming tube industry.
