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.
