Spanish town of Ibi head quartered Bornay SL has successfully commissioned High Frequency RD 40 tube welding line from SMS group. The new tube welding line enables Bornay to produce high-quality tubes with round, square or rectangular cross-sections and yield points of up to 1,200 MPa. The line can produce tubes with diameters between 10 and 40 millimetres and wall thicknesses of up to 4.5 millimetres. Tubes with square cross-sections are manufactured in dimensions of up to 30 x 30 millimetres and rectangular products in dimensions of up to 40 x 20 millimetres with wall thicknesses of maximum 4.00 millimetres.
The products are used as precision tubes in the automotive industry, but also for furniture, agricultural applications and the structures for solar panel trackers. Manufacturing these tubes requires a high degree of precision, which is the reason why Bornay has placed high demands on the new tube welding line right from the start.
The production facility in the Alicante region, Spain, has been producing welded steel tubes for various sectors since 1965.
