Manufacturing process

The characteristic and manufacturing method of the cold drawing tube

The manufacturing method of the cold drawing tube
1. Produces the accurate free-size tube through the cold drawing process,
   adjusts to the dice and plug.
2. Produces the easy processing cold drawing tube, through appropriate heat treatment.
3. Produces the tube which meets customer’s needs and uses,
   adjusts to mechanical property by controlling its work-hardening property.

The manufacturing method image

The characteristics of the cold drawing tube
1. Dimensions precision is very good.
  (outside diameter and the inside diameter, as for the dimensions allowance, possible with a range by 0.01mm unit available with 0.05mm spec.)
2. Beautiful surface (finish).
3. Produces deformed tubes.
4. The mechanical properties are adjustable.

1. Mother tube entry

Mother tube entry image Mother tube entry image2
Purchase the mother tube from steel and pipe makers.

2. Swaging

Swaging image Swaging image2
The end of mother tube shapes to desired size through swaging process, for inserting tubes into the dice where they are grasped and shaped by the carriage.

3. Heat Treatment

Heat Treatment image Heat Treatment image2
Perform the equalization of materials, softening and stress release. (It may be unnecessary depending on the kind of the mother tube)

4. Surface Treatment

Surface Treatment image Surface Treatment image2
Remove the oxidized scales from the material’s surface caused by heat treatment using sulfuric acid and perform lubricating process before the cold drawing.

5. Cold Drawing

Cold Drawing image Cold Drawing image2
The outside and inside diameter reduces cold drawing with dice and plug with plug. The result of cold drawing is ensuring exacting dimensions (outside and inside diameter, wall thickness) and high-grade surface property.

6-A. Midterm heat treatment

Midterm heat treatment image Midterm heat treatment image2
Let processing work-hardened materials make softening (to facilitate the next drawing) by cold drawing.

6-B. Final heat treatment

Final heat treatment image Final heat treatment image2
After cold drawing, make the heat treatment to get the specified mechanical property.

7. Straightening

Straightening image Straightening image
After the cold drawing or the heat treatment to make the tubes straight.

8. Eddy Current Test and Demagnetization

Eddy Current Test and Demagnetization image Eddy Current Test and Demagnetization image2
Pass the tube in exciting coil and detect the defects such as flaws by a change of the electrical impedance of the detecting coil from the eddy current’s change. The pipe which became magnetized does demagnetization.

9. Cutting

Cutting image Cutting image2
Finished tubes are cut according to customer spec.

10. Beveling

Tubes are beveled according to customer spec.

11. Inspection

Inspection image
Inspection items are visual test , dimensional tolerance and mechanical properties(YS,TS,El.)

12. Packing

Packing image
Only tubes passing all inspection gates are packed according to customer spec. (pieces, weight)

13. Anti-Rust coating

Anti-Rust coating image Anti-Rust coating image2
Rust-proofing: Antirust oils are coated over surface of tube.

14. Shipment

Shipment image Finished tubes are delivered by the track.
