Purchasing Pipe Cutting Tools December 10, 2016

If you’re looking to upgrade your Pipe Cutting Machines, for reasons of safety, expansion of your business, or for those do it yourself jobs in the garage, there are tools out there that can help you save time and money. Most importantly, buying the right tool will minimise risk, and help you avoid industrial accidents around the home.

The most difficult route you can follow these days is the old style of hand grinding. This way is very outdated, difficult to do well every time, time-consuming, and results in a higher number of accidents due to the nature of how it operates. There is a loss of accuracy associated with the practice as well. I would urge you to reconsider this option, and instead, do further research into what is available.

Pipe Cutting Machines and beveling tools today are much safer, easier, and affordable to use than ever before. Considerable time and attention go into the construction of these modern tools with all the competing companies offering them. Safety standards around the world also continue to evolve and protect users, and the tools must evolve in line. This has lead to the improvement in safety and usability of tools in all trades.

A good range of tools to have around for refrigeration repair, boiler repair contractors, exchanger re-tube shops, automotive repair garages, and heavier applications like oil refineries, chemical plants, the paper and pulp industry, and power plants are: piloted high revolution tube bevellers for hard to reach areas and tight bends, pneumatic high powered saws (especially for boilerplate panel removal, severing pipe, and cutting tank walls), chain clamp mounts for those smaller diameter pipe cutting projects, internal clamping end prep tools to complete the job, and OD clamping split frame tools. Looking into and obtaining the right combination of these tools will ensure maximum productivity and safety on your job site.

If you’re working with lower tensile strength pipes in your next cutting or beveling project, consider a pneumatic pipe cutting tool. It will work best for this application. If the project is heavier or done continuously, hydraulic pipe tools will be better able to perform and withstand the use in this case. Careful assessment of what your tools will be doing, and how often they will be doing them, is vital for the successful execution, day in and day out, of the tasks you wish to complete.

Before deciding on what you are going to purchase, talk to your local supplier of power tools. Someone well versed and practised with all options will be best able to point you in the right direction and meet your needs. Some can even offer training and supervision for all your employees, and for you, to ensure maximum productivity and to minimise the potential for accidents.

Being sure you are buying the right tool will take some research and work the next time you are looking to upgrade your Pipe Cutting Machines. This effort will be well rewarded by increased productivity, and safety, throughout your job site.
