Online strip width calculator
designed for welded tube and pipe
JMC Rollmasters Div. of Johnston Mfg. Co.
Inc. has developed the Advanced Strip
Width Calculator™ for tube and pipe producers. The online calculator uses math-ematic- and metallurgic-based algorithms
to estimate thinning caused by bending
deformation, as well as girth reduction effects in the fin passes.
The calculator’s SyncIt™ feature allows
the user to synchronize the formula with
specific product requirements and operational preferences. Once set, edit-able parameters are saved automatically for future reference. Internal text
files within the program help the user get started. Clickable question buttons
provide answers to SyncIt questions.
The calculator is available at www.jmcrolls.com/products-services/strip-width-calculator/.

Newly developed steel offers
high yield, tensile strengths
Ovako has introduced Hybrid Steel®,
which offers the properties of tool
steel, maraging steel, and stainless steel, as well as the production
economy of engineering steel. It
takes its name from the simultaneous hardening by both carbides and
According to the company, the steel has three times the yield and tensile
strengths of conventional steel at temperatures up to 500 degrees C. These
properties make the material suitable for use in highly stressed applications
such as engine components, bearings, and tools.
Because the steel develops its full properties through heat treatment at
temperatures that cause a very low distortion, a manufacturer can machine a
component to its final dimensions with the material in a softer condition and
then heat treat it to achieve its full strength.
How do you
Successful manufacturers continually seek to improve
quality and reduce cost. AMADA MIYACHI manufactures
a range of DC inverter welders that dramatically improve
weld process control utilizing closed
loop feedback which results in
consistent output, lower scrap and
increased production yield.
