Augusta Steel selects Thermatool Welding Systems

Augusta Steel, an independent manufacturer of high quality steel tube based in Boksburg, South Africa, has recently installed a third Thermatool HF welder manufactured by Inductotherm Heating & Welding Ltd. The company is delighted to have this opportunity to play a key part in a series of strategic investments currently being made at Augusta Steel.

Thermatool specialises in the design and manufacture of high technology tube and pipe production equipment, offering the most comprehensive range of HF welders, seam annealers and high speed flying shears to the tube and pipe sector worldwide.

Augusta Steel continues to service three main industries, namely the mining, construction and general fabrication sectors. Augusta Steel produces mining conveyor tubing and many types of structural tubing, all manufactured to critical tolerances in order to satisfy SABS standards. Sales Director Nico Erasmus adds: “This welder will be our third Thermatool welder purchased in three years. We have found Thermatool welders extremely reliable and very cost-effective. Having the same brand of welder also gives us the ability to have interchangeable consumable parts. From the initial enquiry to after sales service, Adrian Wood and his team has given Augusta steel impeccable service. We also have great comfort in dealing with Thermatool’s Agent in South Africa.”

Inductotherm Heating & Welding limited is one of 40 companies making up the INDUCTOTHERM GROUP and is the European manufacturing and technical headquarters for Thermatool, Radyne, Banyard and Newelco, producing a diverse range of induction heating and welding equipment specifically suited to the metal processing industry.
