OTO hollow shape forming mill technology at ITA conference

Fives will make a presentation on OTO HSU (hollow shape universal) mill technology at ITA conference organised by International Tube Association on November 7-8, 2017 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

ITA conference

Andrea Anesi, Operation Director of Fives OTO S.p.A. and a concept designer of the OTO HSU mill, will present the OTO HSU tube mill technology, concept and advantages. The mill has been specifically designed to produce hollow structural section tubes by direct forming, skipping the traditional step of constructing round tubes and then squaring them.

The technology substantially saves set-up times, reduces investment costs for rolls and required floor space for roll storage, as well as minimizes operator involvement.
