Exact Tools says that the award-winning PipeCut range of pipe cutting systems is one of the fastest, easiest, safest and most precise methods to cut and bevel pipe and tube on-site, producing a straight ready-to-install finished surface in a multitude of diameters and materials – and eliminating many of the problems associated with pipe cutting.
There are over seven different models available ranging from the PipeCut 170 and 170E systems for cutting 15–170 mm diameter steel and plastic pipe, to the PipeCut P400 for cutting and bevelling plastic pipe from 100–400 mm in diameter with wall thicknesses of up to 25 mm, all in one process.
Each model can be supplied with a choice of three different blades. Blades include the tungsten carbide tip (TCT) blades for general use in cutting steels, copper, aluminium, plastic and multi-layer materials; cermet blades, with ceramic tips for heavy-duty applications such as cutting stainless steel and acid proof steel; and, diamond discs for cutting cast iron pipe.
Exact Tools pipe cutting systems are suitable for cutting a wide range of tube and pipe, including spiral duct tube ranging from 75–1,000 mm in diameter, with wall thicknesses ranging from 1.5–6 mm.Article continues below…
These systems are ideal for the professional industrial pipe installer employed in power generation, refinery and chemical plants, construction sites, shipbuilding, gas installations, maintenance and repair work. They are easy to use on steel, cast iron, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and most types of plastic.
The cutter firmly grips the pipe to be cut with the blade being automatically positioned to cut correctly, while the entire weight of the cutter rests on the pipe. When started, the blade chips the pipe surface rather than grinding, producing a burr-free cut surface that is ready for installation. The operation is dust-free and does not produce any sparks.
Each system comes supplied with its own pipe holders (except model V1000, which are an optional extra), pipe saw, allen keys, CD user manual, and carry case.
Other features of these products include the ability to cut pipe at floor level – and the flexibility to cut pipe wherever electric power is available, reducing the need for work benches or large manipulators.
