Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment, a worldwide supplier of tube, pipe, and roll form machinery, has available for sale a complete 3″ (76 mm) Abbey Etna tube mill line. This line can be inspected on-site in the United States by appointment only.

Universal 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 jib crane, 5-ton Littell double uncoiler, Kent floop accumulator, and a new in 2016, Kent model PMA-135 shear & end welder.

Welding Section

Universal custom-built the welding section in 2016 with a new 2-roll weld box, new EPU (seam guide), 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.


The line concludes with a single-cut Betaram cut-off, runout table, and a new U-TRAK length control system. The U-TRAK delivers more accurate cuts on the fly to increase line speed, reduce scrap, extend blade life and overall improve productivity.
