Portable Pipe Cutting Power
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.
Conventional motors are used on the frontdrive adapters, eliminating the need for a second motor.
An air caddy assembly is included with all pneumatic machine packages to extend the
life of the motor by keeping it lubricated and free of water.
Aluminum Body is rigid and easy to handle, providing the highest strength-to-weight ratio in the industry.
Large Bore Pipe Cutting Versatility
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.
The patented split bearing design provides a
quick and accurate setup. The rigid aluminum
body users can size down at least 8” with
extension pads for all AFC models and 14” for
all BFC models giving the user the unrivaled
ability to tackle more applications with one
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 split-frame machines.
No Single Point slide is needed, for heavy wall. The Split-Frame machines can cut a 4-inch wall without changing the standard cutting setup. Operators only need to change thetooling to a compound bevel and straight severs.
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 Split-Frame machines, there is no need
to buy or rent different extension pads or feet
to hold an aggressive cut.
Tool Slides ruggedly built for strength and
durability. Four cap screws are all that is
required, to securely mount the slides. This
dramatically speeds and eases tool slide
mounting and locating. Standard sizes are 1",
2", 3", 4", 7" and 10". Other sizes are available. Out-of-round and axial-feed tool slides
are also available.
Motor Adapters are available to mount the
motor out the front or at a right angle to the
frame for work in congested areas. The patent-pending H&S TOOL motor adapters eliminate the need for additional motors and conversion components.
Counterbore heads with fixed or swivel head
design allows for precise counterbores. These
are also mounted directly on tool holders or a
crossbar attachment to accurately refinish
flanges from 4" to 86" O.D. (101.6 to 2184.4
mm) with surface finishes from 63 to 500
Cut Pipe Safely
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
The Shark Fin™ and Defender ring guards
mount cleanly to the clamshell mitigating the
pinch points between the rotating slides and
