Basic characteristics of Steel Honed Tube production

- Feb 12, 2021-

The general feature of the production of Steel Honed Tube is that the honing of the pipe material before cold deformation and until the accumulated cold deformation reaches a certain level, in order to eliminate work hardening and other needs, a series of cold deformations must be carried out before honing the pipe products. For preparation work, there are many processes for honing the tube; the honing tube material usually undergoes many cold deformations from being put into production to being processed into a finished product. Moreover, the entire production process of honing a tube often includes multiple production cycles consisting of preparation and deformation processes. Reciprocating, the honing tube has a long production cycle, and the metal consumption of the honing tube is large; the honing tube equipment is mostly a single arrangement, and the honing tube is generally produced intermittently.

The material of the honing pipe must be carefully inspected. The surface of the honing pipe must not have harmful defects such as wrinkles, cracks, scars, scribes, etc.; the size of the honing pipe should meet certain requirements, such as hot rolling. The tolerance of the outer diameter of the honing tube is about ±1-1.5%, and the thickness tolerance is about one (10-15)%, + (10-12.5)%; the curvature is generally not more than 1.5-2 mm/m; the end of the honing tube It should be straight and free of burrs; if the honing tube has burrs, it must be removed, which is especially important for cold rolled tubes. In addition, the chemical composition and mechanical properties of the honing pipe material should meet the specifications in the technical conditions.

Generally, the surface of the honing pipe material should be pickled first and then inspected. The slight defects of the honing tube can be repaired. Rehearing and honing the outer surface defects of the pipe can use a peeling lathe, a centerless grinder, a hand-held or hanging grinder.

Grinding of the inner surface defects of the honing pipe can be carried out on a grinding machine such as an internal cylindrical boring machine. Since the surface defects will continue to expand during the cold deformation process of the honing tube, and as the diameter of the honing tube decreases in the production of the honing tube, it is more difficult to grind the inner surface defects. Therefore, the surface defects of the honing tube should be exhausted. Possibly eliminate before cold working.
