Flash Removal
Flash Control Pipe

The electric resistance welding process extrudes a small amount of metal (weld flash) on both the inside (I.D) and outside (O.D) of the tube during the manufacturing process. The outside flash is always removed from the O.D of the tube with a cutting tool keeping the outside surface smooth and uniform.

Independence Tube also has the ability to remove the inside flash when needed for telescoping applications, or when a mandrel is inserted in the I.D. for punching, drilling or bending.

Independence Tube can flash remove the sizes below:
