ESCO Pipe Milling Tool Features Wide Clamp Ribs That Mount Securely

April 9, 2013 - Holliston, MA

ESCO Tool has introduced a portable welding end prep tool for use on heavy-wall stainless steel pipe and hard to machine alloys that pulls a thick chip without cutting oils for producing superior welds.

The MILLHOG® Commander I.D. Clamping End Prep Tool features large clamp pads that spread their contact forces radially inside the pipe to provide rigid clamping for chatter-free end preps on thin and heavy-wall pipe. Utilizing formed tool bits with chip breakers that direct heat away from the surface, this tool can perform 37-1/2 degrees bevels, compound, counterbore, and J-preps without cutting oils, to meet most welding requirements.

Equipped with one mandrel and seven sets of clamps, the MILLHOG® Commander I.D. Clamping End Prep Tool can prep all schedules of pipe from 3.75" I.D. to 14" O.D. Standard with a 3HP pneumatic motor, 1800W electric and hydraulic motors are optional. Applications include pipeline construction, fabrication shops, offshore super duplex, petrochem, and power generation.

The MILLHOG® Commander I.D. Clamping End Prep Tool is priced from $14,995.00 and is available for rent, with 24 hour shipment or less usually available.
