A new clamshell split-frame machine for bevelling and end prepping tube and pipe that features a new indexable module with a double-edge insert bit has been introduced by Esco Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts, USA.

The Esco COHOG® Split-Frame Machine features a new module that mounts to the tool slide and holds a pre-angled bit of 30º, 37-1/2°, or custom angles that are easy to change and use double-edge insert bits which are also easily changed. This clamshell machine has a robust stationary ring machined from 7075 aluminum alloy that is hard coated and supports a custom steel forged, heat-treated and nickel-plated rotating ring.

Available with pneumatic, electric, or hydraulic power, the Esco COHOG® Split-Frame Machine has indexable tooling with slides and trip mechanisms and a marked locating system. Providing vibration-free operation, it can be precisely aligned and quickly attached without shims or guesswork and the rotating ring is supported by precision tuned eccentric bearings. This end prep machine self-squares and attaches quickly.
