Yoder Supplies 5” Mill for Mechanical and Structural Tubing

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Yoder recently supplied a tube mill for mechanical and structural tubing.  The mill has a capacity of 5” OD, ¼” maximum wall thickness, and can re-shape up to 4” square or 2” x 6” rectangle.  The system includes Yoder’s latest design of weld box, which is a 5-roll arrangement for larger products and 4-rolls for smaller diameters.  Additionally, the system includes the WH-350-RS reshaping stands, which can reshape up to 4” (101.6 mm) square, rectangles up to 6” (152.4) wide and as small as 2” (50.8 mm) in the horizontal and vertical axes, for materials up to 0.250”  (6.35 mm) thickness.  The reshaping stand has been designed so it may be retrofitted on any mill that makes up to 5” (127 mm) round, and can directly replace existing Yoder W-35 and WH-350 Sizing Stands. 

In addition to the mill mechanicals, Yoder provided the general engineering for the project, providing foundations and arrangement for the coil handling, welding and cutoff equipment for planning of the customer’s Greenfield site.
