Multifunctional Roll Forming for a New Generation of Tube Mills
In most cases today a tube is a semi-manufactured product, which has to undergo further processing until it becomes the final product. Tube manufacturing itself is only one part of a comprehensive process chain. The concept of Multifunctional Roll Forming is based on an integration of down-stream processes into the tube mill. Both - tube manufacturer and his client - can benefit from this development. A reduction of the number of processes in a process chain always means cost reduction. The capability to supply value-added tubes opens up new market opportunities for tube manufacturers.
