Abstract : The technology of the industrial process of the manufacture of welded straight-seam tubes from titanium and its alloys is presented; the essence of two new processes for the production of tubes from titanium - argon-arc and high-frequency welding - is shown. The construction of units for preparation of strip in the flow of tube-welding machine, protective chamber, and semiautomatic welding torch is indicated. Special features of transfer equipment, welding devices, and tools used during the production of titanium tubes by argon-arc and high-frequency welding are noted. The results of investigations of properties of welded titanium tubes and the technical and economic indices of production are given. The prospects for application of the new methods of producing titanium tubes in factories of the USSR are presented. The booklet is intended for engineering and technical workers and skilled workers of plants engaged in the production and application of titanium tubes. The materials presented in the pamphlet can be used by design organizations and by students of technical colleges and technical schools. (Author)
