The MFC small diameter series fits in tight places with a range from 0.625 to 2.625 inches OD (15.9 to 66.7 mm). The MFC design is a unique combination of accuracy, strength, and ease of handling for in-line pipe bevels and severs.

The versatile AFC split-frame machines are portable pipe lathes designed to simultaneously sever and bevel pipe. The frame is split for easy installation on in-line pipes. With a range from 1 to 42 inches (25.4 to 1066.82 mm), the AFC series is very rigid with a light-weight aluminum body offering the highest strength-to-weight ratio on the market today. The patented remote tripper assembly allows users to sever and bevel remotely, keeping operators hands away from moving parts.

The heavy-duty BFC series features a thicker body to withstand the high torque required for heavy wall pipes in large diameters ranging from 48 to 86 inches (1219.2 to 2184.4 mm). Stackable extension pads allow for greater flexibility and the ¾ inch (19 mm) locator pad adjustment minimizes the number of extension pads to cover the working range. The patent protected pocket-style motor mount eliminates motor twisting and ring gear damage, increasing reliability and reducing total cost of ownership.
