The forming process of pipe fittings

For the manufacturing process of all pipe fittings, forming is an indispensable process. Because the forming process of different products is different, it needs a long time.


In order to meet the requirements of material deformation in the forming process, it is necessary to heat the blank when the tube is manufactured by hot forming method. The temperature usually depends on the material and heating process.

During the forming of hot pushing elbow or hot bending elbow, the medium frequency or high frequency induction heating method is usually used, and the flame heating method is also used. This kind of heating mode is continuous heating which is synchronous with the forming process of elbow or elbow. The tube blank is heated in motion and the forming process is completed.

When hot pressing elbow, hot pressing tee or forging are formed, the heating method of reverberatory furnace, flame heating, induction heating or electric furnace heating are usually adopted. This kind of heating is to first heat the tube blank to the required temperature, and then put it into the die for pressing or forging.

There are two kinds of pipe fittings with welding seam. One is the pipe fittings made of welded pipe. For the pipe fitting manufacturer, the forming process of welded pipe is basically the same as that of seamless pipe, and the forming process of pipe fitting does not include welding process; the other is that the pipe fitting manufacturer completes the welding process required for pipe fitting forming, such as the elbow formed by assembling and welding after single piece pressing The tee pipe is welded into tube blank after being rolled by steel plate drum, etc.

The commonly used welding methods of pipe fittings are manual arc welding, gas shielded welding and automatic welding.

Our factory guides the welding work according to the preparation of the welding procedure specification, and carries out the welding procedure qualification according to the corresponding specification requirements, so as to verify the correctness of the welding procedure specification and evaluate the welding ability of the welder.
