The Most Affordable Pipe Cutting Machine: HGG PC 600 Product Spotlight
By Joel Armstrong
In today’s world, time is everything. How long does it take to cut, prep, and weld a pipe joint? How much time does the welder spend welding? Do they spend a disproportional amount of time grinding and preparing the weld joint? What if your company had a pipe cutting system that eliminated the hours spend grinding? How much more welding could be accomplished in a shift, a week, a month? How much safer is your facility if you can eliminate a large portion of the grinding in your facility? What happens to your abrasive spend if you eliminate this grinding?
The HGG PC 600 is an affordable yet sophisticated pipe cutting system that will reduce material handling, increase welder arc on time, and eliminate the need for post cut welding.
The PC 600 has the ability to cut 2” – 24” pipe, either carbon or stainless. It can be outfitted with both a plasma and an oxy-fuel cutting system. The pipe is loaded into chuck, the operator either calls up a part file or programs the cut, and then the PC 600 does the rest.
The operator can see the parts in 3D before the cut is made to ensure the shape is correct and the holes are in the correct location.Draftsmen can upload part files to the PC 600 as well to expedite the process.
Cutting can be done by plasma or oxy-fuel for the thicker members. We’ve gotten great results utilizing the Hypertherm Powermax 125 system. These pictures demonstrate the cut quality directly after cutting.
