Large-diameter pipe plantsTube and pipe making
Whenever large amounts of liquids or gases have to be transported over long distances, pipelines are the answer. They supply industry with raw materials and drinking water to cities, and transport energy resources around the world. However, large-diameter pipes also play an important role in other fields. Included here are construction or piling pipes for offshore projects.
Longitudinally welded large-diameter pipes produced on our plants are hightech products. Tough enough for all conditions, they withstand wide temperature fluctuations, high pressures, as well as acidic and corrosive gases.
With plants from SMS group you achieve even better quality, more flexible and more cost-effective processes, more precise dimensions and closer pipe tolerances.
Today, there are two important processes used in the production of longitudinally welded large-diameter pipes. They are UOE and JCOE®, a process developed by SMS group. We supply the equipment for everything from the first to the final process step. That includes not only the core machines, but also all the upstream and downstream process steps required for projects in a large-diameter pipe plant.
SMS group combines the individual machines for the production of large-diameter pipes into completely integrated systems.
There is a huge demand for the automation of complete large-diameter pipes plants and integrated individual machines. That's another SMS group specialty.
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.
Remote access to the machine control system for fault analysis is possible only after authentication by the customer. Direct analysis and evaluation of the operating parameters are performed online by the SMS Service employees. They can easily identify defects and malfunctions and initiate measures for fault elimination. Remote access also allows the system software to be updated. Naturally, the installation of the necessary hardware and software for the remote access is already included in the remote service.
