Safer by design

Revolutionary advances in tube and pipe cutting safety can be a direct result of the evolutionary nature of product development. by Bill Atkinson It’s remarkable how fast changes occur in devices we utilize in our everyday lives. Living in an era of seemingly boundless innovation, new products are introduced and...

For Safety’s Sake, Don’t Tie it Down.

Zip-Ties, band clamps, rubber bands, twine, and twist-ties, etc. are all helpful little devices that serve a worthy purpose – unless it’s to hold down a trigger on a portable machine tool! The trigger on an air-motor typically has a spring tension that requires compression to activate. This means the...

You Wanna Play Rough? Say hello to our little friend.

Since it’s introduction, this small beveling powerhouse has proven itself in the field, but did you know about its versatility? The venerable Model 204B is a compact portable ID mount machine tool with a longstanding reputation for excellence in precision cutting of pipe and tube. The versatile mandrel mounts to...

The system approach reflected by TRIMAX offers maximum versatility and economy.

The unmatched headstock stability and rigidity of the TRIMAX system makes possible new and exciting machining operations and special applications never before achievable with a split-ring machining system. The capacity to accept much larger cutting loads and forces without adversely affecting performance maximizes the optional accessory configuration extensibility of this...

TECH TIP: Independent Tool Holder Height

When Tri Tool engineers designed TRIMAX’s safer internal tripper mechanism (to remove potential pinch-points) another primary advantage resulted. Previously, the external tripper was fixed at height settings to match the mounting bolt hole positions. The TRIMAX features Toe Clamps so that the height of the tool module is variable above...

A Core Principal: Operator Safety

Rotating elements of a portable machine tool are always a safety concern as they present the possibility of pinching or entangling as they pass other elements of the machine. In addition, the rotating elements can interact with other pipes, bulkheads, walls, scaffolding, etc. creating hazards even with machines designed to...

TECH TIP: Clamshell Tool Holder Adjustment

When designing precision, high-performance machine tools intended to perform reliably in harsh environments, clearances and part tolerances are deliberately kept tight. To maintain the high level of surface finish and machining accuracy, the machine must be kept clean, properly lubricated, and adjusted for wear. Our quality machine tools were designed...

Safety Focus: Realizing Chip Hazards

Portable machine tools generate cutting debris that differs significantly from flame cutters, grinders and saws. The advantages that cold cutting has over these other cutting methods are first, as the name implies, a cold cut does not produce the sparks that can ignite oils and gases in the cutting area....
