ERW TUBE FORMING PROJECT

CASE STUDY − FORMING, SIZING AND STRAIGHTENING

 

CHALLENGES


 

A large ERW Tube & Pipe producer desired to lower their operating costs in order to maintain their competitive position in the industry. As part of their program, the producer was interested in:

  • Reducing number of suppliers
  • Improving quality
  • Increasing output
  • Transferring Process Fluid Management to one supplier thereby allowing their personnel to concentrate on producing pipe

The company they chose to provide all their process fluids was Quaker Chemical.

 

THE SOLUTION


 

Quaker introduced a complete line of products and worked closely with the customer to meet all their specific needs. The result was an estimated yearly savings in excess of $500,000, and a signed three year contract with Quaker. The customer also introduced Quaker to five of their other mills throughout the United States. Quaker′s products, engineering, and services provided improvements in process efficiencies and quality, and lowered operating costs.
