Spin welders / Friction welders for pipe bell welding

Corrugated pipe bell welding using friction

Friction welding is a common practice in europe to attach the bells to the end of corrugated pipes. Unlike North America which has adopted in line belling, requiring a liner trimmer, the European standards typically require a thicker bell than is achievable in most corrugating processes.

Pipe manufacturers achieve great flexibility when welding a bell as a post corrugating process, achieving more flexibility in pipe lengths, higher corrugator line speeds and a simpler extrusion system. Friction bell welding supplies a high quality belled product, capable of meeting all the European norms.

There are two type of welding systems that have evolved, the first developed in Europe has the bell being welded to the outside of the pipe, while the North American developments have the weld being made between the inner wall of the pipe corrugation and the bell flange. Either system has proven to work, but the resulting injection mold costs for the North american bell designs are significantly less than those used in Europe.

Spinwelder have been built to be in line with the corrugator, or offset to the extrusion centerline. The line configuration is customer speciffied. Often a spin welding line is supplied with additional material handling such as weld pressure tester and pipe turning.

Many spin welder designs are available from Adescor. The high speed double head machines for pipe sizes of 50mm - 120mm OD have been proven to run at line speeds up to 20m/min welding 4m lengths. The largest machine built to date is capable of running to a 1200mm pipe OD. Adescor have a great track record and many happy customers using their equipment. Its worth contacting us for a quote, even if its to help your price negotiations with our competitors.

We are a supporter of Unicor GmbH and work with them on corrugator projects. We have been selling and supporting their equipment for over 17 years. With many manufacturers using their corrugated pipe machinery in North America, Unicor are a world leader of pipe corrugator technology. Get in touch with us for a quotation.

We offer a broad range of pipe extrusion downstream equipment. This includes pipe cutters, takeoff tables, crating equipment and many other accessory machinery used in a pipe plant. The equipment is made in Huron Park, Ontario by Adescor who have been building machinery for pipe extrusion plants for over 20 years.

We offer a range of pipe coiler solution for winding pipe or profiles in extrusion plants. From small manually operated single reel machines to large double head fully automatic systems, we have a pipe winder solution that will meet your needs. The machinery can be used in both solid wall or corrugated pipe extrusion systems.

We offer replacement molds for many types of pipe corrugators used in North America. We also offer proto-typing capability for technical tubes and hoses through a number of our partners. If you need molds made for a new part, and want us to organize the test run, we are happy to do so.
