It is the ultimate platform for our wide range of accessories which deliver maximum performance for the most basic to the most intricate machining needs: in-line severing, beveling, counterboring, milling, facing, OD tracking, weld cladding removal, single point machining, template tracing, and socket weld removal.

Our clamshell cutters can simplify the processes of cutting to length and weld end preparation by performing both operations simultaneously. Easy to set up and operate, the 600 Series precision pipe cold cutting machines offer reduced labor and time requirements for pipe cutting and beveling, and component replacement, the perfect solution for plant maintenance where downtime is a critical economic issue.

Best-In-Class Precision
Designed for Maximum Durability
Both In-Line and End Prep Versatility
Cold Cutting Machine – No Heat Affected Zone
Rapid, Dependable Performance
A Comprehensive Range of Accessories

Tri Tool’s unique clamshell bit designs allow for optimal pipe machining speed and feed rates. A simple, reliable feed control system provides the flexibility to perfectly match the cut depth for any material. Tool blocks are heat-treated for durability and parts that could be damaged, such as gears, pins, and bearings, are protected to reduce the chance of accidental damage. Gears are fully covered to provide increased operator safety.

Designed specifically to operate in areas of tight clearances, these machines provide features that permit them to machine pipe in a wide variety of situations where no other pipe cutting machine can be used.

Because clamshell cutters use cold pipe cutting methods, they can be used in controlled environments where OD mounted flame cutters are unacceptable. Clamshell cutters can be operated by remote control, making them perfectly suited for machining operations in nuclear services, explosive, toxic, underwater and other hazardous environments.

Tri Tool® clamshell cutters produce superior results, able to deliver exacting diameter and surface tolerances within thousandths of an inch, making them ideal for use with advanced orbital welding systems.

We offer four 600 Series of clamshell cutters for optimal versatility:

TRIMAX® pipe lathes — Safest, most stable split frame lathe on the market today
RBL-G2 split-frame clamshell cutters – high-speed motor option for safe, rapid pipe cutting
SB split-frame clamshell cutters – versatile pipe cold cutting machine
SBCM slide-bearing split-frame lathes – rapid and reliable severing and beveling of in-line tube and pipe

When your work demands ultimate precision and durability in in-line/end-prep equipment, choose Tri Tool 600 Series clamshell pipe cold cutting machines for guaranteed performance.
