Standard Machine

Standard Beveling Machines

Each machine is constructed of durable, lightweight, hard-anodized aluminum for easy transportation to any jobsite for cutting and beveling 2" to 36" diameter pipe precisely, quickly, and economically, even under the toughest conditions.

Every ring gear and saddle are precisely machined and calibrated to +/- .025 in concentricity and +/- .015 in squareness. The standard rear-mounted short saddle aids cutting and beveling in tight locations, while allowing precise back-beveling operations.

The unique "split horseshoe" design permits easy placement over pipe sections. A quick-operating boomer assembly securely locks the machine to the pipe for an entire 360-degree rotation. No repositioning is ever needed! The manufacturer's patented Cuboid Spacer System keeps the spacers on the machine to minimize downtime.

The Pipe Beveling Machines save weld prep time and money compared to hand cutting. With easy-to-follow manuals and a few minutes of instruction, any operator can easily make accurate cuts and bevels.

How fast? For example, when using the No. 3 Standard Beveling Machine a 20" diameter pipe can be cut and beveled in about four minutes!

Saddle-Type Machines


Cuboid Spacer System

Exclusive Standard Features

Cuboid Spacer System

The patented Cuboid Spacer System relieves frustration and downtime in looking for lost spacers because the spacers never leave the machine.

Cuboid is a six-sided form with rectangular sides. Three specific thicknesses conform to different pipe sizes. Only four cuboid spacers are used to quickly set up the machine. In the past, 12 spacers were required.

The saddle of each machine and the four cuboids allow four specific pipe sizes to be cut. Each side of every cuboid spacer is clearly stamped to ensure cutting the correct pipe size. When not in use the cuboid spacers are securely housed on the back of the saddle. It's a no-lose proposition in time-saving productivity.

Saddle Design
Improved Saddle Design

The function and financial advantages for the customer over its competition by designing the precision saddle and ring gear as separate components.
Instead of locating the ring gear in the middle the manufacturer places the saddle behind the ring gear, greatly reducing the risk of warping the saddle while back-beveling.
The Saddle Assembly is less likely to be damaged; however, if a problem occurs, this separate component design is more economical in replacement costs.

7CS Solid Torch Holder
7CS Solid Torch Holder

Now standard on all of the saddle-type beveling machines, the Model "C" Adjustable Torch Holder, the Model "C" Out-of-Round Attachment, and all Shape-Cutting Attachments, the 7CS Solid Torch Holder provides greater cutting accuracy, efficiency, and strength. A single thumbscrew secures the torch instead of hose clamps. A cotter pin makes the thumbscrew captive to the torch holder, allowing easy removal or replacement of the torch. Precise and simple to use, the 7CS means solid performance.
NOTE: The 7CS is available for retrofitting to the 5C Torch Carrier Assembly. Only two screws are needed for removal and replacement.

2DH Boomer Strap2DH Boomer Strap Eye Assembly

Forget cotter pins and S-hooks. The manufacturer offers a safer, more dependable 2DH Boomer Strap Eye Assembly. The 2DH allows the chain on the boomer assembly to quickly adjust and securely lock the machine to its respective pipe size. The boomer assembly is now a captive member of the machine.

Quality Control

Every machine is manufactured through a rigid system of quality controls, calibrated to +/- .025 in concentricity and +/- .015 in squareness during final assembly and then rechecked one last time before distribution.


Optional Accessories


Motorization Kit
Motorization Kits

For large pipe work or fabrication the motorization kits are highly recommended when 115 AC is available.

The Motorization Kits achieve precise torch speed, increased production and consistent, high-quality beveled edges with every cutting and beveling operation. Speed ranges are sufficient for most plasma-cutting applications.

NOTE:  Each motorization kit has a 115VAC control box and a 90VDC reversible motor; complete with gear reduction box, mounting bracket, and gear guard. Motorization kits with instructions are available for field installation or are factory installed on new machines.

Torch Valve Manifold block
Torch Valve Manifold block (TVMB)

The Torch Valve Manifold block saves time and energy in accurate torch settings without wasting oxygen and fuel gas.

With the TVMP just adjust the torch once. A lever turns the torch on and off without altering the flame setting. Consistent, uniform, high-quality, flame-cut bevels from end to end are achieved every time! The TVMB also eliminates hose drag for even greater accuracy and productivity.

NOTE:  This accessory fits all Pipe Beveling Machines. Field installation requires one hole to be drilled and tapped.

Double Torch Holder
Double Torch Holder

Increase productivity by 100% with the Double Torch Holder!

It consists of one 18" torch arm with two 5C Torch Carrier Assemblies.

After positioning the torch holders at specific bevel angle, two beveled cuts can be made in one revolution.

NOTE: For ultimate precision and control, use of the Double Torch Holder in conjunction with the optional TVMB is strongly advised.

Storage Box
Storage Boxes

The best protection for your machine during transportation and storage is the lightweight aluminum storage box. Storage boxes for all Models No. 0 through No. 5 Standard Beveling Machines are available.

NOTE:  Boxes for Model No. 30 and Model No. 5 are available by special order only.

Adjustable Torch Holder
Model "C" Adjustable Torch Holder

Both horizontal and vertical torch movements are easily made by the Model "C" Adjustable Torch Holder with its two rack-and-pinion-driven, dove-tailed slide assemblies. Smooth, accurate torch adjustments eliminate blow holes. Even the torch height can be changed while the cutting torch is in motion.

No special modifications are needed with most torch lengths. A built-in protractor provides precise bevel angles every time. The Model "C" fits all Standard Beveling Machines, except the Model No. 0, which requires a special adapter plate.

NOTE:  The Model "C" Adjustable Torch Holder fits all Standard Pipe Beveling Machines. A special adapter plate is required for the Model No. 0.

Model "C" Out-of-Round AttachmentModel "C" Out-of-Round Attachment

Cut and bevel imperfect pipe and create square ends without a problem with Model "C" Out-of-Round Attachment.

Riding on the outside diameter of the pipe, the Model "C" compensates for errors in roundness by using a spring-loaded, dove-tailed slide.

Like the Model "C" Torch Holder, the Out-of-Round features the same precise assemblies for independent horizontal and vertical torch movements. A built-in protractor provides precise forward- or back-beveling angle settings.

The Model "C" Out-of-Round Attachment fits all Standard Beveling Machines that cut and bevel 3" to 36" pipe. The Model No. 0 requires a special adapter when working 2" to 4" pipe.

NOTE:  The Model "C" Out-of-Round Attachment fits all Standard Pipe Beveling Machines. A special adapter plate is required for the Model No. 0.

Shape Cutters
Shape-Cutting Attachments and Templates

Even novices to pipe cutting and beveling can achieve superior-quality craftsmanship in making saddles, Y's, T's, miters, and various angle cuts on all of the manufacturer's machines with shape-cutting attachments and templates.

Each custom-made prefabricated metal template is bolted to the face of the ring gear. The torch is spring-loaded against the template. While the machine rotates around the pipe the torch moves along the same path as the template. The triangular design of hard-anodized travel tubes and carriage rollers ensures lateral torch stability and smooth, consistent, horizontal torch travel during a complete revolution. Achieve accurate cuts from proven patterns every time, even when cutting miters up to 45 degrees.

Custom Made Template
When ordering the Shape Cutting Templates:

For miters - Specify machine model, pipe diameter, wall thickness, and angle of miter.

For saddles - Specify machine model, pipe diameter, wall thickness of branch, pipe diameter being intersected, and angle of intersection.

For other shapes - Please furnish technical drawings.
