The PBM-2500 is the First of a New Line of Portable Beveling Machines



Webster, Texas – March 19, 2019 – The new PBM-2500 Portable Beveling Machine (PBM) is now available for sale and/or rent through any of SPR’s 10 locations throughout the US and Canada. The PBM-2500 is the first product in a family of machines that will ultimately cover pipes ranging in size from ½” through 26”. SPR plans to add five additional beveling machines in the future lineup. 

What Can A Pipe Beveling Machine Do?

Pipe beveler machines have been around since the early 1900s. In those days, they were manually operated. They were built to cut large-diameter stainless steel pipes that had to be bent or shaped in order to help the preparation of weld seams before pieces are welded together. Today, pipe beveler machines are automated and use hydraulic power to operate their cutting heads.

Cutting Pipes At Adjustable Angles

A pipe beveler machine can cut pipes at various angles. The bevel angles of the cut are determined by the position of the cutter head. Pipe bevelers are used for cutting pipes into different shapes such as square, rectangular, round, hexagonal, octagonal, etc. It uses indexable carbide inserts and a guide plate to cut to exactly the measurements you need.

Cutting Pipes To Different Lengths

Pipe beveler machines can also cut pipes to a specific length. A pipe beveler machine with a fixed cutter head can cut pipes up to 12 inches in diameter. A pipe beveling machine with a sliding cutter head can cut pipes from 18 inches to 36 inches in diameter.

Stationary vs. Portable

Pipe beveling machines come in two types: stationary and portable. Stationary pipe beveling machines are usually installed on a workbench or table. These machines are designed for long runs of pipe where there is no need for portability.

On the other hand, portable pipe beveling machines can be moved easily from one job site to another. This makes them ideal for job sites where the pipe needs to be bent or shaped right away. SPR's portable pipe bevelling machine's robust design makes it ideal for flexible use on job sites, without sacrificing performance and quality.

Superior's Pipe Beveling Machines

The PBM machines are designed for safety and durability. The current (standard) unit comes with an inside diameter (ID) mounting range of 1” to 2.5” and an outside diameter (OD) cutting range of 1.0625” to 2.5.” Future accessories include a ½” mandrel package, a 2.5” to 4” extended mandrel package, and a flange facer. Each of these accessories is interchangeable in minimal time. “Durability is built into the design in order to reduce breakage and the costs of consumables and tool bits,” says Al Shiyou, President of SPR. “This new product offering demonstrates our commitment to continuous innovation in the development of field machining and related equipment.”
