Tool for chamfering metal pipes

Chamfering tools

In the process of threading, trimming and some other processing of rounded metal parts, burrs can form on their edges, which create certain inconveniences, in particular. interfere with the process of joining products. And, in addition, such irregularities can cause injury with sharp edges. For this reason, they must be removed with certain tools, such as a metal pipe chamfering tool or an edger.

Auxiliary components

Chamfering tools are unthinkable without accessories:

  • Specialized self-centering clamps;
  • Centers with interchangeable cams to help remove chamfers from pipe products of various diameters;
  • micrometer steel screws and cutters for most unit models;
  • Pneumatically or electrically operated.

Chamfering for steel pipes can work in two modes: mechanized and manual. Knowing all these features of the machine, you can perform mechanical operation in a wide variety of conditions. Due to the compactness of the units, they can be used in unforeseen situations.

The tool can be much more expensive if

  • Need to process all sorts of materials.
  • Requires excellent quality results, which can be obtained under extreme conditions.
  • Requires high speed action.
  • There is a desire to do away with complicated controls.

Bevelers for weld preparation of steel pipes

Every pipe job in the energy industry or Rostechnadzor involves the precise and correct joining of pipes. There are GOSTs and rules of joining pipes, taking into account diameters and thicknesses. In different industries (power, gasprom, petrochemical) on the welding of the same pipes, there are different requirements rules. In addition, the use of foreign steels in the energy industry has become a problem for our welding specialists.

I have been working as a repairman for over twenty years.As a contractor, I am involved in various industries, repairs, replacement and installation of various steel pipelines. from coils and boiler panels with a pipe diameter of 16 mm to water pipelines up to 3000 mm in diameter. Pipes wall thickness varies from 1 mm to 50 mm (rarely, but sometimes over 50 mm).

I am not going to tell you now how and why pipes are trimmed and chamfered, but you are on the subject. Read more about methods of pipe joining in other publications on this site.

Techniques for preparing pipe ends (beveling)

  • Directly in the manufacture of pipes, the chamfer is removed in the factory on special machines. Pipe lots are normally supplied chamfered for welding.
  • In the case of on-site repairs, the beveling of some sections of pipe(s) is done on the lathe in the repair shop.
  • Professional gas cutters, the edges of the pipe can be carefully cut by hand with a gas cutter.
  • In the absence of professional cutters (and they are less and less) and a large amount of work, the ends of pipes are processed by special devices using gas or plasma cutting.
  • Our state standards do not recommend the use of flame cutting on pipes made of alloy steels (but if you want to cut it, you can, but after cutting. be sure to clean up the angle grinder).

How the chamfering machine works for steel pipes?

Chamfering machine is a portable machine, where the cutting tool is a carbide cutter sharpened to the required angle. These machines are available in various diameters and thicknesses.

The tool is fastened with special clamps inside the pipe, one cutter fixed on the rotating head, evenly facets the pipe, the other removes the outer or inner chamfer. Setting up and operating such a machine is not difficult. The work can be performed by a third-class locksmith.

Features of chamfering machine models for preparing pipes for welding.

The principle of operation of such devices is the same for all. The differences are in the actuators.Drives can be pneumatic or electric.

Pneumatic actuator is somewhat easier and safer, but the need to have high quality compressed air, makes it not popular in Russia compared to the electric actuator 220 volts.

Manufacturers and of chamfering machines.

If your company is ready to buy European machines, I have nothing against them. German, Italian companies sell quality tools and European engineers and workers earn good money on them and on us!

Since Soviet times we used domestic shaped bevelers “Mangust. I can say nothing bad, the tools are at the level of world brands, but the are at the same level! The drive is usually “electric, from grinding machines “Bosch” (bolgarok). When one day we decided to change the gearbox on such a machine, the drive was not on the market. an old model, Bosch does not produce them anymore!

Our private firm, has successfully tested the Chinese version of chamfering machines. The main advantage is of course the price! The quality is not worse than European counterparts.Guarantee.Two years and consumables without problems!

For example, a complete “Mangust” for pipes up to 32 mm in diameter costs about 200 tons.р. The same Chinese tool we bought for 65 tons.р. We use both our and Chinese tools for three years now, the Chinese have proven to be even more reliable. Why overpay?

I do not want to advertise for free, but the video is a good beveler for a normal price. Suppliers,sometimes triple the price! Be careful when choosing a seller!

Deburring the outside and ends

Deburring is required for polypropylene pipes with an aluminum reinforcing film, which can be located between the polypropylene layers in the walls of the product or on the outside. Depending on it you may need a tool for external stripping of such pipes or a cutter (more details: “Do you need scraping for polypropylene pipes and how to make it, if necessary”).

You can not replace these tools with home equipment, but any of these tools for polypropylene pipes can be easily found on sale. Their price is very cheap, because there is no complicated mechanics or a significant amount of expensive steel grades.

Pipe chamfering machines: design features and rules of use

To provide a tight connection to the pipes, as well as durability and integrity of the structure as a whole, different products and materials are used in the work. Along with them, to prepare the elements of the system for installation are used various kinds of devices and tools. This category of products includes pipe chamfering machines.

Consider the purpose of the chamfering tool

Unlike conventional chamfering machines, chamfering machines for steel pipe products solve the following tasks:

  • Cleaning of rough spots, burrs and chamfering on the edges only.
  • Calibrating metal pipe products.
  • Creating a chamfer, which allows you to hermetically join two metal pipes without much effort.

Such chamfering machines are extensively used when laying mains of pipes of various purposes.

Just a device allow you to remove the chamfer for precise installation of metal pipe in the fitting, it makes it possible to save the gasket. sealant inside. Subsequently, it becomes a guarantee of high tightness of the joint.

Since edgers can be made specifically for cutting metal, polyethylene and plastic, and also differ in the type of drive, you should consider all the existing mechanisms to choose the best option.

Based on the complexity of the work, the devices are divided into:

Any equipment is equipped with elements for trimming, this can be:

  • Tools consisting of several rollers, which are able to process pipes with a cross-section from 50 to 100 mm, the disadvantage of which is insufficient deburring of the surface.
  • Devices with the presence of an iron cage of cutters. with such models it is possible to cut thin-walled steel pipes, for a greater thickness requires stronger trimming parts.
  • Models acting on the principle of a chain saw, equipped with a tensioning mechanism, chains and a swiveling lever, the use of such devices ensures a clear and smooth cut, ready for welding.
  • Rotary pipe cutters work with rollers, fixed around the pipe, the cutting can be performed in difficult conditions and provides high quality of processing.

Suitable modification should be chosen based on pipe size and special working conditions.


The simplest manual tool is simply fixed in the necessary area, and after a few turns you can get a distinct cut, of course, this mechanism is not suitable for a large amount of work and requires an electric device, which has several advantages.

Electric manual chamfering machine. a device that chamfers holes and surfaces. It can be used for working with different metals. non-ferrous, steel and cast iron. Hand-held model handles both straight and radiused chamfers.

The main advantages of the models:

  • Compact. the unit is easy to hold and carry thanks to the special case, and in terms of performance it is just as efficient as the heavier, larger machines.
  • Easy operation, allowing high-quality work without special training.
  • Economical power consumption, in contrast to stationary equipment.
  • Ability to perform work at different angles.
  • Comfortable, vibration-free thanks to special handles and rubberized coating.
  • Another plus is the affordable cost of the tool.

Disadvantages apply only to some models:

  • The work requires the fastening of the material to be machined or the tool itself;
  • lower productivity, unlike chamfering machines;
  • Additional machining before welding is sometimes necessary.

In most, miniature modifications are preferred, because with their help you can handle even thin metal sheets with a thickness of 1.5 mm and holes with a diameter of 4 cm. Its size is about 60 cm, while the power is 2200 W.

When choosing such equipment, you should also pay attention to its speed (10 m/min), chamfer width (up to 20 mm), diameter radii (R3, R4, R5).

The most popular electric manual models include: the Polish manual facer VM-20, the German portable model EKF-300/450, domestic analogues. FS-10 (only for sheet metal) and “Mangust” (only for pipes). Ridgid products also have great features.

Other kinds of devices

In addition to hand tools, there is professional equipment that guarantees high accuracy and quality of processing. Let’s consider all varieties in detail.

Pneumatic models, capable of finishing of pipes of different diameter and thickness. But this is not their only advantage. with these devices you can do boring before welding, use the technique in a small space of the room. At the same time they have high power, which is applicable to increased loads.

Such chamfering machines are often used when there is no power supply or there is a risk of damaging the cable. Among the disadvantages are the need for a compressor or other source of compressed air, as well as their heavy weight, so they cannot be used at home.

Pipe cutters with a hydraulic drive, acting by pumping water and the resulting pressure on the piston, are more powerful than simple hand tools. They do not need to be connected to the mains, and this is an advantage, but for domestic work, it is better not to buy such equipment, but to rent it.

The most in-demand pneumatics are the device NT1738M, used for processing pipes with an inner diameter of 60 to 102 mm, and TT-80 for internal and external pipe beveling.

Undoubtedly, if electricity is available, it is better to use models with an electric drive, in other cases other types of equipment can be used.
