Hot forming by mandrel is suitable for production of seamless steel pipe fittings. The process consists of hot forming press and middle frequency induction mandrel. We are able to produce large size elbows with steel pipes with small diameters through this exact process. For example, if the diameter of raw steel pipe is 6 inches, then we could manufacture elbows with diameter of 10 inches and even 12 inches.
Since steel pipes used during this kind of production process are usually seamless, no further welding will be required. The subsequent procedure after the process will be similar with that of cold press forming process.
We have three sets of elbow cold press forming machines, which feature high automation degree, thereby being able to produce seamless pipe fittings with caliber ranging from 0.5 inches and 20 inches in quantity.
