Finishing lines and individual machines

Tube and pipe making
Complete lines for tube and pipe finishing

Whatever tubes you manufacture, the chances are they require special machining before application in the field. Line pipes must be tough enough for extreme conditions with secure weld seams; oil transport tubes and pipes must feature standardized threads. To ensure these qualities, SMS group supplies everything from individual machines to complete finishing lines. Our solutions are precisely tailored to your product range and on-site facilities. That goes for both new plants and upgrades.

Concepts

From primary product to finished tubes

You can rely on SMS group for complete finishing lines as well as individual machines for seamless and welded tubes or pipes. Depending on your customers' specifications, you need various quality control equipment with widely differing performance characteristics. Similarly, it's also necessary to integrate different machining processes into the material flow. SMS finishing lines are especially designed for these applications: OCTG finishing lines, Boiler tube finishing lines, Finishing lines for general structural pipes, Heat treatment lines.

Individual machines for tube & pipe finishing

Our spectrum of finishing lines ranges from hydrostatic pipe testers for all common certification methods, through pipe end finishing machines for facing, chamfering, upsetting, or thread cutting, right up to high-performance milling and cut-off units. Also included are roll and die dressing machines. All our systems are designed for fully automatic operation and monitored by intelligent automation solutions such as MES (Manufacturing Execution System).

Electrical and Automation Systems

Integration of the latest technologies and automation processes

Included in our supply scope is automation of complete pipe and tube finishing lines as well as integrated individual machines. So, whatever you want, from individual sensors, through drive and control technology, right up to planning and implementation of computer-aided information and control systems: SMS group supplies complete solutions.

You name it - from project planning to system implementation - we devise customized solutions and apply cutting-edge automation technology to meet your specific requirements.

Included here are: 

  • Condition monitoring
  • Manufacturing execution systems (MES)
  • Radio frequency identification (RFID) tool identification and tracking system · Pipe and material tracking
  • Wireless network (WLAN) design for complete industrial plant
  • Mobile panels for remote machine control
  • Quality assurance system (QAS)

Using plant simulations, we thoroughly test the capabilities and functionalities of complex industrial plants as early as the project planning and engineering stages. Then we apply the findings to perfect the structure and control strategies of our plants.
