TMK-ARTROM is a leading European pipe manufacturer based in the south of Romania. The production is focused on thick-wall seamless steel pipes, mainly for the machine tool and oil and gas industries. The company is part of the TMK-Group, an international operating Russian consortium. For years, the TMK Group has been one of REIKA's Global Key Accounts. The long-standing cooperation is constantly developing, consolidating REIKA‘s and the customers‘ position on the market.
A special challenge during this project was the integration of the two new RingSaw®s into the existing finishing line behind the quench&tempering shop. The RingSaw®s will be used for end and partial length cutting and will replace obsolete cutting machines. The new line is designed for quenched and tempered thick-wall steel tubes in grades J55 - P110. Due to the high performance of the new machines, it is possible to co-ordinate further processing directly from the tempering area, even with sample cutting.
Meanwhile, Reika RingSaw®s are worldwide known for:
High speed cutting process for high tensile steel tubes
Rectangular and precise cut
Free from most burr on inner and outer surfaces
Ideal solution even for large wall thickness tubes
Low tool cost due to long tool life
Short, heavy chips, easy to remove
No pipe magnetization
Low noise emission
Ergonomic and safe machine operation
Those advantages, especially for processing quenched&tempered tube qualities, are highly appreciated by REIKA‘s customers worldwide. Close attention was paid during the spectacular loading of the two machines in January. The REIKA employees did not miss the opportunity to be on site during shipping. At night, the heavy load transport with escorting police and safety vehicles left in time to Romania.
REIKA was originally founded in 1906 as "Maschinenfabrik Reinery". From the very beginning REIKA developed machines and plants for tube processing, here especially for cutting-off and end processing lines.
Today REIKA is one of the world's leading manufacturers of turnkey tube processing lines, among others for the automotive industry and its suppliers.
