Esco Tools’ new tube and pipe prepping tool

Esco Tool’s Cohog split-frame machine for beveling and end prepping tube and pipe features a new module that mounts to the tool slide and holds a pre-angled bit of 30 degrees, 37 1/2 degrees or custom angles that are easy to change. It uses double-edge insert bits, which are also easily changed. This clamshell machine has a robust stationary ring machined from 7075 aluminum alloy that is hard coated and supports a custom steel forged, heat-treated nickel-plated rotating ring. Available with pneumatic, electric or hydraulic power, the machine has indexable tooling with slides and trip mechanisms and a marked locating system.
