Pipe beveling is the process of forming an angle on the edge at the end of a pipe or tube. The most standard bevel angle for welding is 37.5 degrees, but there are other angles and forms suchs as the J-Bevels that can be produced with automatic pipe bevelling machines.
Especially important in industries which require stainless steel pipes, the automatic pipe bevelling machines are the best way to prepare the pipes for orbital welding.
Saves time and improves efficiency
Pipe bevelling machines are many times faster than other methods such as manual grinding, flame cutting or hand held bevelers. The operation is clean and efficient and the cycle time is between 5 – 20 seconds depending on the size of the parts.
Reduces operator error
Once the equipment is properly setup, it can easily be operated by a non-skilled operator. Even so, the pipe bevelling machine is able to produce accurate pipe bevels consistently.
Safe and lower costs
The beveling machines use industry standard carbide tooling and thus has a very low operating cost. In addition, it is also safer to use as compared to hand grinding or torching.
