Spanish welded steel tube specialist Bornay S.L. has ordered an HF (High Frequency) tube welding line, type RD 40, from SMS group 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 to 40 x 20 millimeters with wall thicknesses ranging between 1.00 and 4.00 millimeters.

The tube welding line to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2020 will achieve a production speed of maximum 120 meters per minute. 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.

“Our requirements with regard to the new welded tube plant were very high since we produce tubes for mechanical applications that require a high level of precision in their finishing. The engineers from SMS group have designed a plant meeting our needs.” says Juan Bornay, Managing Director, Bornay S.L.

Bornay S.L. specializes in precision tubes and stainless steel tubes for the European, Latin-American and African markets and has over 50 years of experience working for different sectors, including the automotive, furniture and agricultural sectors.
