18 Jun NOW AVAILABLE – THE NEW FF5300 FLANGE FACER
Forged from 40 years of flange facing experience, CLIMAX is proud to announce the release of the NEW FF5300 Flange Facer. This rigid and versatile compact flange facer delivers high-torque performance to quickly face pipe and valve flanges as well as repair sealing and bearing surfaces efficiently and cost-effectively.
The FF5300 was extensively engineered and tested to ensure it machines accurately to the published cutting diameter range using either carbide or HSS tooling. Having also analyzed and tested our competitor’s machines, we quickly discovered that our competitors are far less interested in designing a rigid, robust, and effective flange facer than they are over-stating its machining capabilities. Call me old-fashioned, but I’d rather buy the machine that actually does what it says it will do.

Powerful, Precise Machining Performance: The heavy-duty machining arm provides rigid performance and reliable results, ensuring high-quality cutting performance throughout the full range of the machine. With a 2.4 HP pneumatic motor, the FF5300 provides more power and speed, resulting in higher metal removal rates to get the job done fast.
Versatile, Productive, and Efficient: The CLIMAX FF5300 Flange Facer is designed with an extended machining range, from 5.7 – 40 inches (144.8 – 1016 mm), providing more flexibility. The interchangeable machining arms are quick and easy to replace, allowing for work in confined spaces or unique environments without having to buy a completely new machine.
The variable feed rate comes standard for both radial and axial feed, providing a host of benefits including significant time savings, easy machining of various types of materials, and a high-quality surface finish. In addition, the tool head rotates to any angle and includes standard preset angles of 0°, 23° and -23°. The tool holder accepts up to 0.5 inches (12.7 mm) square shank tooling for use with HSS or carbide.
Industry-Changing Safety: CLIMAX’s CE-certified FF5300 Flange Facers are meticulously engineered with safety in mind, setting a new standard for keeping operators safe and productive. The feed control is located on the outside of the machine, keeping the operator’s hands away from moving parts and minimizing the risk of injuries. The emergency stop allows for quick stops and controlled re-starts. The low-pressure safety interlock system prevents unintended restarts after the loss of supplied air pressure.
The modular components are lightweight, easy-to-use, and easy-to-transport reducing the potential for worker fatigue, the number one source of accidents on many work sites. The FF5300 Flange Facer is 45% lighter than similar flange facers on the market today.
The compact and versatile FF5300 Flange Facer powers through rough metal flanges and delivers unparalleled performance. Contact us today at 503-538-2185 to learn more about the product or to determine the right flange facing solution for your business.
