30 Jul THE H&S TOOL CLAMSHELL PIPE CUTTING AND BEVELING MACHINE
The H&S TOOL Clamshell (split-frame) design is a unique combination of safety, reliability, ease of use, rigidity, and precision. The newly introduced, DEFENDER™ ‘Hands-Free’ remote control and protection system, creates a much safer work environment for onsite machinists across the globe.
With twenty-three sizes to choose from, H&S TOOL Clamshell machines can cover a wider range of applications to meet the demands of your specific pipe cutting and beveling projects.
Patented outboard drive motor bearing provides rigid and precise support of the motor shaft – increasing the life of the motor and gears and allowing for quick work of light-wall tubing while providing enough torque for heavy-wall alloy tubes.
Patented pocket-style motor mount eliminates motor twisting and ring gear damage, increasing reliability and reducing the total cost of ownership.
Aluminum Body is rigid and easy to handle, providing the highest strength-to-weight ratio in the industry.
Part interchangeability across all models reduces the amount of parts inventory required allowing the operator to swapping from one machine to another in the field, lowering your overall investment and the items that need to be stored or available onsite to your operators
Stackable extension pads allow for greater versatility of range on all wall thicknesses. The ¾ inch (19 mm) locator pad adjustment, minimizes the number of extension pads needed to cover the working range. With the H&S TOOL Clamshell machines, there is no need to buy or rent different extension pads or feet to hold an aggressive cut.
The patent-pending Defender Kit™ Flow Control System allows users to control the speed remotely, giving them the ability to slow down for heavy-wall cuts or more precise cutting after machining weld overlay, or speeding up for harder materials with carbide tooling.
Universal components – the counterbore head, tool slide, axial feed slide, and flange facing attachments are plug and play on all AFC & BFC Clamshell (split-frame) machines.
|PARTNER IN SAFETY
The patent-pending Defender Kit™ includes a pneumatic conditioning unit with a low-pressure safety interlock system preventing unintended re-starts after the loss of supplied air pressure and E-stop for quick stops & controlled re-starts.
Designed with user safety in mind, the remote auto-feed system keeps operators’ hands safe from moving parts and keeps the job running smoothly.
The Shark Fin™ and Defender ring guards mount cleanly to the clamshell mitigating the pinch points between the rotating slides and motor mount.
