Spanish welded steel tube specialist Bornay S.L. has ordered an HF
(High Frequency) tube welding line, type RD 40, from SMS group
(www.sms-group.com) for its Alicante works. SMS group is the
single-source supplier of all technical equipment from strip
preparation to the cut-off-saw.
The new machine will produce round tubes with diameters from 10 to
40 millimeters and wall thicknesses from 0.75 to 4.5 millimeters, as
well as squares in dimensions from 10 x 10 millimeters to 30 x 30
millimeters and rectangulars in dimensions from 20 x 10 millimeters

Here, Bornay can produce high-quality tubes with round, square and
rectangular cross-sections. They can be used, among others, as
precision tubes for the automotive sector, but also for metallic
furniture or in the agricultural sector.
