Pipe Facing Machine

Posted by Wayne Moncla on Thu, Sep 18, 2014 @ 09:55 AM

While there are many ways to create an angle at the end of a pipe or tube, know as pipe facing or pipe beveling, automation offers a number of advantages over other options. Pipe facing options like hand grinding, flame cutting, hand held bevelers, and lathes are all time consuming, labor intensive processes. Automatic pipe facing, on the other hand, is a consistent, safe, and clean process that makes large volume applications much simpler.

Pipe Beveler - Benefits of Automation

Posted by Wayne Moncla on Tue, Aug 26, 2014 @ 08:00 AM

There are many ways to create a bevel, an angle between the edge of the end of a pipe or tube and a plane perpendicular to the surface, like hand grinding, flame cutting, hand held bevelers, a lathe, or a pipe beveler. Hand grinding, flame cutting, hand held bevelers, and lathes are all time consuming processes, so they aren't well suited to high volume applications. Hand grinding and flame cutting also present a couple of other issues, most importantly they are dirty, inconsistent processes and so are really only an option for very low volume applications.

Bevel Machine

Posted by Wayne Moncla on Tue, Jun 17, 2014 @ 08:00 AM

Pipe beveling is the process where an angle is formed between the edge of the end of a pipe or tube and a plane perpendicular to the surface.  A standard pipe bevel angle for welding is 37.5 degrees.  Other angles and special forms such as J-Bevels can also be produced on the ends of pipe or tube using automatic beveling machines.
