Tantalum cannot be processed by the ordinary method of processing general metals. Generally, the initial process is a heat forging, and a flat blank or a circular small and medium billet is formed by hammering and punching.
We can manufacture welded pipes and seamless pipes for a wide range of applications. Seamless tubes can be made by extrusion, tube reduction or deep drawing with sheet metal. The welding method is to form a strip, then form a tube, and then weld the joint with a gas tungsten arc (GTAW).
Advantages and disadvantages of tantalum seamless pipe and welded pipe
1: uniform wall thickness, good internal surface quality
2: High production efficiency. low cost
3: Easy to produce large diameter pipe
4: Short production cycle
5: Product quality is easy to control
1: Poor flexibility, it is not suitable to produce products with large specifications and small batches.
2: Weld seams are often weak links
3: Weld seam cleaning is difficult
4: Ellipticity is not easy to control
5: High dimensional accuracy requirements for the strip used
Generally suitable for producing large batches of products
1: Can produce small gauge pipes and capillary materials
2: Good flexibility, suitable for producing small batches and many specifications.
3: Uniform performance of all parts of the pipe
1: The uniformity of wall thickness is difficult to control
2: Long production cycle and low yield
3: The equipment is complicated and the investment is large.
4: Difficult to produce large diameter pipes
Generally suitable for the production of small quantities of small products
