It is planned that the new KHI SPM 1800 production line will soon be inaugurated in April 2008. This new production line is a production line for manufacturing spiral pipes. This new production line will add 3 spiral pipe production lines that have previously been SPM 2000, SPM 1200 and SPM 900. With the addition of production lines there will be an additional production capacity of 5000 tons / month or 60,000 tons / year.
The addition of this production line is a form of KHI’s commitment to continue to use the latest technology to meet market demands that demand excellent product quality. With the SPM 1800 production line, the pipe market trend leading to the demand for pipes with a pipe thickness above 16 mm will be fulfilled.
