Portable clamshell for pipe cold cutting in pipeline welding applications

The portable clamshell pipe cold cutting machine has been developed in cooperation with European Offshore industry. A high metal removal rate, a large adjustment range and an easy setup is given with these outperforming clamshells. The portable machine for pipe beveling cutting avoids any heat affected zone (haz). Specially designed for heavy wall pipes with high wall-thickness in heavy duty applications. Their high working speed and quick readiness for use allow economic manufacture.

  • Pipe cutting machineSplit-Frame Technology for endless tubes
  • Extremely low weight for easy handling and lifting
  • Compact dimensions for use in areas with limited access
  • Quick and safe clamping and adjustment for pipeline welding
  • Developed with „On-Site Know-How“
  • Perfect pipe cutter for pipeline welding


Pipe cold cutting

Pipe cold cutting for the machining of pipes on-site, are versatile in application and can perform many operations. The portable cutters are versatile in application and can perform numerous operations like

  • radial severing of pipes
  • simultanious cutting and beveling 
  • pipe end forming before weld preparation 
  • inside-turning of pipe ends
  • flange facing for repair of flanges on-site

The application range of the machines is from 76 mm - 914 mm O.D. and for wall thickness up to 100 mm. The split construction type cutters can readily mounted on assembled streches of pipes. Special applications like remote control are available for limited access in pipeline welding.


Clamshell pipe cutting machineThe portable clamshell pipe cold cutting machine has a high metal removal rate, a large adjustment range, are easy to handle and are constructed in a rugged and compact way. Their high working speed and quick readiness for use allow economic manufacture with pipe cutting tools.


Design und Development

The cold pipe cutting and beveling machine is designed in a compact way with aluminium alloy components, which give huge benefits to the enduser:

  • Compact for limited access
  • Reduced weight for more ergonomic work
  • Split frame technology for endless steel pipes
  • Designed for heavy wall pipes up to 80 mm WT

Possible pipe cutting tools for clamshell cold pipe cutting machine

Developed with German universities our tool tip solutions for pipe cutting and beveling provide an outperforming result in pipe cutting technologies:

  • High metal remove rate
  • More durable cutter, reduction of consumables
  • Low cost of tool tips
Cutting Tools

 Pipe cutting tools
 Type of cutter
Cutting of heavy duty pipes by use of two cutters  Pipe cutting tool for heavy duty pipes
Different types of weldpreparation by use of HSS form steels according to customer drawing  Pipe cutting tool for weld preparation
Simultaniously cutting and beveling of heavy duty pipes  Pipe cutting tool for cutting beveling
Simultaniously bevelling of both pipe ends (depending on wall-thickness)  Pipe cutting tool for bevelling both pipe ends


The drives are a basic component of the pipe cutting machine. All motors are west european standard. An adapter allows easy exchange of all motor types and sizes (pneumatic, hydraulic, electric)

Further Advantages:
  • Modular Design
  • Easy exchange on-site
  • Reduced investment

All pipe cutting tools are done with metric screws, this reduces need of special tools on site, automatic feed mechanism allows a stable and constand work progress. Different drives, like pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical drives, are possible options.
