Tube Production Technology Begins at Dundee with AMCOL
Since 1955 Dundee Products has been producing welded steel tubing at their facility in Southeastern Michigan, and for more than twenty years, AMCOL has been supplying them with metalworking fluid systems. This long-standing relationship was built on quality, trust, and communication. In 2019 Dundee Products began to install a fourth tube production line which brought in a host of revolutionary ideas. Breaking old paradigms and forging new opportunities would be the attitude of this project. These ideas include State-of-the-Art systems across the board with more shapes, tighter tolerances, and higher speeds than they had achieved. Dundee products wanted a production line that would push the boundaries of what is considered a tube mill today. When the time came to specify the Metalworking Fluid Systems, Dundee Products didn’t have to look far. They chose to stay with AMCOL.
During a 20 year relationship with Dundee, AMCOL brought new ideas and updated technologies for process lubrication in welded steel tubing. Dundee had come to rely on their vendor for not only coolant but ALL of their Metalworking Fluid System needs. For their new investment, they would unanimously decide that AMCOL would help carry them into the future.
The AMCOL Approach – Each individual component of tube mill lubrication has an impact on the other. Coolants, lubricants, corrosion preventatives, filtration, cut-off lubrication, and inline profile coating must be designed to work cohesively. We provide an Integrated Systems Approach that considers each piece of the process and how the performance of each can be maximized to enhance the others. The AMCOL Approach is a complete solution that provides performance today and peace of mind for the future. That is how AMCOL provides “Proven Technology, Refined Over Decades.”
To all of the people that make things work at Dundee Products. Your willingness to take a risk, your understanding of the entrepreneurial spirit, and your knowledge that the future is built today is what makes the American manufacturing environment great. Thank you for choosing AMCOL to be a part of your success.

Coolant with Filtration
The Model 3076 Coolant Filtration System is a ready-to-install sump system with an automatic indexing 20-micron bed filter, oil skimmer with decanting reservoir, 5-micron polishing filter, and pumps to supply coolant to the mill. This 3076 pairs perfectly with 2200 GT CHARCOOL, a proven high-performance synthetic tube mill coolant that eliminates build-up on rolls and protects the integrity of tubes.
Rust Preventative with Spray System
The 3200E In-Line Coating System utilizes AMCOL’s time-proven pump delivery with a containment box to house the nozzles and minimize consumption. The spray nozzles are mounted between the final sizing and cut-off to apply to any continuous profile, no matter the shape. The 3200E works synergistically with 921 DS CANT RUST rust preventative used to protect steel during long-term storage and interim transit. The oil-carried fluid protects the final product from oxidation such as red rust, white rust, staining, and/or pitting.
Cut-Off Lubricant with Spray System
The 6000 Precision Lubrication System applies a light, even coating of lubricant to the cut-off tooling. Our time-proven pump technology outperforms the competition with quantity control that cannot be matched. Combining a 6000 Precision Applicator with one of AMCOL’s high-performance synthetic blends will maximize tool life and provide a residue-free part. Each CANMIST product is recommended based on the type of metals being cut.
