Productivity Matters

High Accuracy and Reduced Fitting Time with Praxair's Pipe Cutting Solutions

Sep 9, 2020
Praxair’s ProStar PIPER and PIPERPRO series pipe cutting machines can help improve productivity over manual cutting and processes to help you get more done in less time, more accurately and with less clean up and grinding. Learn more in this week’s blog below!

Fabricators often cut and process pipe manually, using handheld systems and pipe jacks and stands. While this is a great solution for on-site or temporary needs, when pipe work becomes a regular part of your business, productivity can suffer with time lost handling and fitting pipe, as well as with the limitations of manual cutting processes. Additionally, manual cutting processes generally require significant grinding and processing to make parts weld-ready.

Praxair’s ProStar™ PIPER series of cutting machines minimize the need for grinding to drastically reduce fitting and weld prep time. With their ability to perform accurate cuts using plasma and/or oxyfuel, and a variety of standard features, the PIPER series pipe cutting machines are a good fit for almost any shop and budget.

Three-Ton, High-Accuracy Pipe Cutter

Praxair’s ProStar™ PIPER 3T is a well-standardized pipe-cutting machine that makes use of a three-jaw chuck to clamp and rotate the pipe during cutting. The self-centering chuck provides high-accuracy cutting with a securely clamped pipe that won’t slip or creep during rotation. The adjustable pipe supports and helps level pipe diameters from 2 inches up to 24 inches and can be processed in a wide range of lengths and profile shapes. This system can drastically improve productivity over manual cutting and processes to help you get more done in less time, more accurately and with less clean up and grinding.
