Lincoln Electric's New MASTERPIPE® Mini Profiler Delivers Efficient, Accurate and Versatile Pipe Cutting in a Small Footprint
Press release date: December 3, 2013
Cleveland – Offering an economical, entry-level CNC pipe-cutting solution in a compact footprint, the new MASTERPIPE® Mini Profiler from Lincoln Electric improves pipe fabrication productivity and quality by consolidating set-up, programming and cutting as an easy operation. This dual-axis CNC machine has a footprint of only 2-feet wide by 7-feet long and can rapidly finish 4-foot material. Five-foot-long expansion modules can help the unit hold material up to 24-feet long.
The powerful combination of a Windows computer, running Torchmate® Driver Software, with the Torchmate Pro-SERIES® CNC controller provides effective cutting on X-Y tables. The configurable, fully editable Driver Software accepts G-code generated by design software and sends it to the controller. This action activates the MASTERPIPE Mini Profiler’s precise, accurate and dependable stepper motors, providing smooth, reliable torch carriage motion through the pairing of a direct gear-drive and self-cleaning V-rail and V-roller system. A single button control moves the torch mount back next to the chuck so that material can be easily loaded, positioned for cutting and unloaded.
The MASTERPIPE Mini Profiler uses a variable-angle, manual height control for plasma torches. An Arc Voltage Height Control (AVHC) option is related to pipe and tubing that is “out of round.” An oxyfuel attachment option is available for material with heavy wall thickness. The MASTERPIPE Mini is capable of cutting and profiling pipe with an outside diameter range of 1 inch to 8 inches, quickly and efficiently delivering a wide range of cuts.
With the optional WinMPM software, the menu-driven programming system is easy to use and doesn’t require highly skilled operations. Operators can select one of six types of cut options from a pre-loaded cut library, making set-up quick and trouble free. The cuts include straight, miter, saddle, crown, elbow support and pipe to cone.
