EFD Induction Weldacs supplied to Tubecon
As part of a multi-million dollar expansion program, Tubecon of South Africa has purchased a couple of EFD Induction Weldac high-frequency welders. The expansion program will reinforce Tubecon’s market position as one of the fastest and most reliable suppliers of hot and cold rolled steel tubing in Southern Africa.
Opting for solid state technology is a result of Tubecon’s policy to operate at state-of-the art level, a move that had been postponed until it was evident there was a machine on the market that could guarantee reliable operation under the demanding conditions of frequent product change----- -and yet maintain high utilization grades. EFD Induction’s Weldac has so far lived up to expectations; while installing and commissioning the machine has been easy and free of problems. In short, the Weldac has delivered the kind of performance Tubecon demands from itself and its suppliers.
The EFD Induction Weldacs supplied to Tubecon feature CAN-bus connections. This means the machines can be easily integrated into the automatic setup systems that Tubecon has developed in-house and installed at its production facility. Here again EFD Induction reflects the flexibility and customer-oriented mode of operation that characterizes Tubecon operations.
