Our TIG Mill Component Solutions are designed to match the customer’s needs and specific requirements. TK Metals’ tube and pipe mill components are engineered with decades of know-how, precision repeatability, and innovation. That means less setup time, less waste, and operator training to make your investment one of the smartest on the shop floor. From entry guides to turkshead units, contact us today to see the difference.

The Entry Guide ensures the strip enters the mill centered and straight and that the strip is formed symmetrically about the centerline of the mill.

Driven Pass Stands from the strip gradually into a cylinder while driving material through the mill itself.

Idle Pass Stands apply pressure on the forming tube to assist in the shape formed between the driven stands.

Primary functions are to stabilize and guide the strip edges as they enter the weld apex and apply pressure to forge the heated edges of the formed strip together for a good weld.

A Turkshead Unit straightens the tube. Specially designed turksheads reshape the tube into other shapes, such as squares.
