In today’s world, time is everything, which makes a pipe cutting machine a must-have tool in your shop. How long does it take to cut, prep, and weld a pipe joint?  How much time does the welder spend welding?  If they spend a disproportional amount of time grinding and preparing the weld joint, you will benefit from a CNC steel pipe cutting machine like the HGG PC 600.

What if your company had a pipe-cutting system that eliminated the hours spent grinding?  Think about how much more welding could be accomplished in a shift, a week, or a month.  Plus, eliminating a large portion of the grinding in your facility will significantly enhance safety.  Not to mention, your abrasive spending will drop as well. In this post, we'll show you how efficient a pipe-cutting machine can be and how to operate the tool.

An Overview of the HGG PC 600

The HGG PC 600 is an affordable yet sophisticated pipe cutting and beveling machine that will reduce material handling, increase welder arc on time, and eliminate the need for post-cut welding.

How to use the HGG Pipe Cutting Machine

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 the 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 pipe cutting.
