Marking of metal sheathed tubular elements with rating, voltage, type number etc, directly after the reduction of the tube is desirable from production point of view. Marking the tubes without intermediate handling means less operation cost and less danger for mix-up of elements.
GRANLUND KOP marks the reduced element along the element (parallel to its length axis), while KBP marks around the element (circumferential). Both are based on pressing steel types into the sheath and are mounted on the reducing rolling mill.
The KOP is available in two versions: KOP-15 with 1,5 mm types and KOP-25 with 2,5 mm types.
• Smooth operation in line with KOR
• Flexible for different tube diameters
