Tri Tool’s lightweight Template Tracer Module is engineered to rapidly bevel, face and counterbore up to 2.5″ wall pipe. The TTMs are single point machining modules that mount to standard 600 Series RBL tool module mounting holes and slots, and span across the rotating ring of the split-frame lathe. They utilize a radial slide fed by a feed screw, and a spring loaded axial slide that has dual cam followers. As the radial slide is fed, cam followers trace the bevel profile from a pair of hardened templates, guiding the axial slide and transfering the template profile to the pipe end. A wide range of templates are available for all angles and types of weld bevels.
The TTMs’ unique design handles the widest range of pipe sizes and allows for a quick switch from counterboring to single point beveling without removing the module from the pipe. They are perfect for light duty form tool applications such as counterboring and cutting a bevel radius, and producing weld bevels that have compound angles and radii. The Template Trace Module delivers the versatility and economy of two tools with the durability and performance you expect from Tri Tool.
