Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corporation, a world-wide supplier of tube, pipe and roll form machinery has available for sale a complete 3″ (76mm) Abbey Etna tube mill line. The line is currently installed in the United States and inspection can be made on site by appointment.

Universal Tube upgraded the line in early 2016 using new, used and rebuilt equipment. Re-work of the Abbey Etna 3X tube mill included all new bearings, seals, re-worked side closers in addition to some replacement spindles. Universal Controls Group manufactured and integrated into the line new AC drive motors and a new AC vector control system.

Entry equipment

The entry section of this line includes a 5 ton capacity jib crane, 5 ton capacity Littell double uncoiler, Kent model R229-LE floop accumulator and lastly, a new in 2016, Kent model PMA-135 shear & end welder.

New welding section

Universal Tube custom built a completely new weld section in 2016. The custom weld base was topped with a new 2-roll weld box and an EPU (seam guide). The weld base components were complete with a new double scarfing unit and automatic quick lift tool holders. Also installed new in 2016, was a 300 KW high frequency, solid state welder complete with heat exchanger.

Cutoff equipped with length control system

This line concludes with a single cut Betaram cut-off and 30’ runout table. A new U-TRAK length control system manufactured by Universal Controls Group, was retrofitted to the cutoff. The U-TRAK delivers a more accurate cut on the fly to increase line speed, reduce scrap, extend blade life and overall improve productivity.
