Pipe Facing Machines

Orbitalum pipe facing machines Prepare steel and aluminum pipe-ends swiftly and with high-quality precision with Orbitalum’s RPG-series of pipe-end facing machines. This series is meant for businesses that manufacture and install piping for high-purity gas, pharmaceuticals, electronics, food and beverages, solar and chemical industries that require robust, burr-free pipe-ends. Orbitalum tube squaring machines can level protruding pipes on a surface and produce square beveled pipe-ends, ideal for precise and robust welding. Our RPG-series is modeled after our quick tool change system (QTC®) for economical clamping and on-site flexibility. A special adaptor clamping shell allows preparation of thin-walled stainless steel tubes (V4A) and micro-fittings too. Our multifunctional tool bits have two cutting edges with a protective coating to guard against wear and tear. The RPG-series comprises electric and cordless tube facing tools to support a wide variety of applications. All RPG pipe facing machines come with micrometer feeds for precise tube squaring.
