Clamshell Lathe Cutter
Pipe cold cutter for DLW-HD 48-72"
The clamshell pipe cold cutter has been developed for high metal removal rate, a large adjustment range and an easy setup in-site. The portable Clamshell Lathe Cutter for pipe cutting and beveling avoids heat affected zone (haz) in pipe cutting process. Designed for heavy wall pipes in heavy duty (HD) applications. The high working speed and quick set up provides fast operation on-site. The DLW-HD clamshell lathe cutter is able to operate safe and precise in most critical applications. A rigid frame construction in combination with high quality steel pinion gear and bearings provide a rugged combination for most challenging work.
Portable clamshell lathe cutter machine
The application range of the machines DLW-HD is for cold cut of pipe from 48-72 inch O.D. and for wall thickness up to 100 mm. The split frame cutters can be mounted on assembled streches of pipes. Special applications like remote control are available for limited access in pipeline welding.
Superior pipe cutter tools for clamshell cold cutters
Developed in cooperation with German universities the tool bit solutions for pipe cold cut and bevel provide an outperforming result in pipe cold cutting methods:
- High metal remove rate
- More durable cutter, reduction of consumables
- Low cost of cutting tools
Pipe cutter operations
Technical features of clamshell pipe cold cutter machine
- Cutting of heavy duty pipes by use of two cutters
- Different types of cold beveling weld preparation by use of HSS form steels
- Simultaneously cut and bevel of heavy wall pipes
- Simultaneously bevel of both pipe ends (depending on wall-thickness)
The drives are a basic component of the pipe cutter machine in terms of reliability and productivity. All motors are west European or US standard. An adapter allows easy exchange of all motor types and sizes (pneumatic, hydraulic). The automatic feed mechanism allows a stable and constant work progress. Different drives, like pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical drives are possible options.
