Pipe cutting and bevelling machines

January 2017 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

The basic requirement for the productive and high-quality welding of pipes with automated welding technology is a precise, right-angled and burr-free cut as well as a perfectly bevelled pipe end. The GF 4 saw from Dowson & Dobson has been designed for precise cutting of tubes and pipes in just seconds.

The GF series cuts and bevels high-alloy steel (stainless steel), as well as low and unalloyed steel, plastics, casting materials and non-ferrous metals, easily and in just seconds using the planetary cutting method. The powerful clamping is effected without any deformation of the workpiece.

Besides the completely manual operation, users also have the possibility to choose between manual operations with manual feed module (MVM) or automatic feed module (AVM) – both optional. The latter option optimises the cutting result, increases the tool life and reduces the operator impact. This results in maximum safety and productivity, a square, burr-free and cold machining process and optimum preparation for the automated welding process.

The GF series sets a new standard in orbital pip machining. Numerous innovative functions combined with an ergonomic design create significant advantages for users in the industrial prefabrication of pipeline systems.
