Mair Research S.p.A.

Successfull commissioning of a complete finishing line for precision tube in Switzerland

A 90mm precision tube finishing Line, supplied by MAIR Research SpA (Italy), has been successfully commissioned at Jansen, Oberriet (Switzerland).

MAIR Research has supplied many highly customised, special finishing lines to Jansen over the last 15 years; the highlight of this particular supply is the 10-roll straightener which has been developed to meet the particularly stringent requirements of the customer.

The recently commissioned equipment is placed off line and processes max. 90mm diameter tube, 6mm wall thickness and 13,5m length.
Tubes are loaded into a bundle unloader with special descrambling features which supplies a 10-roll straightener, linked to a finishing line composed of ultrasonic testing, multicut to reach final length, tube ends deburring, tube washing / rinsing and two automatic bundling systems, one for short tubes (max 2m length) and one for long tubes (over 2m up to 8m length).
The entire line is automatic, the presence of the operators is limited to supervisory tasks.

The entire line has been designed, manufactured and put into operation by Mair Research. All the operations are fully integrated one another and the entire line is managed by a Management Supervision System

MAIR Research SpA has provided services and training to ensure the smooth commissioning and acceptance of the line.
