JFE Chita Works orders second premium threading machine from SMS group

SMS group has received a new order from JFE Steel Corporation, Chita works, Chukyo Industrial Zone, Japan, for a premium threading machine.

This new machine, which will be JFE´s second threading machine from SMS group, will enable the producer of premium threads to expand its production capacities.

The threading machine of type TCG 43/4 is able to thread pipes in the diameter range from 139.7 to 406.4 millimeters with wall thick­nesses from 7.0 to 50.8 millimeters and lengths of up to 15 meters.

The machine operates according to the 'stationary tool - rotating pipe' principle. With this method it can cut standardized inside and outside threads as well as all premium threads.

The powerful drive achieves excellent acceleration and deceleration rates, resulting in a high output of premium threads and of high performance chromium grades. The pipe threads comply with the production standards for all API 5CT steel grades, JFE grades and other international standards.
