A portable welding end prep tool that features air-operated clamping which reduces cycle times for highly repetitive end prep milling in fabrication shops is available from ESCO Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The MILLHOG® Mongoose Air Clamp™ Welding End Prep Tool is equipped with an air-operated clamp that attaches to a tube or pipe I.D. and releases from it by simply flipping a toggle switch. Ideally suited for highly repetitive end preps, the pneumatic clamping system reduces operator fatigue and increases throughput by up to 600%, claims the firm.
Featuring a self-centering draw rod that rigidly mounts into the tube or pipe I.D., the MILLHOG® Mongoose Air Clamp™ Welding End Prep Tool employs clamp ribs that retract off the mandrel automatically after milling to reduce friction. Designed for tubes and pipe from 5/8" I.D. to 3" O.D., this tool can bevel, face, and bore simultaneously and remove membrane.
The MILLHOG® Mongoose Air Clamp™ Welding End Prep Tool sells for $3,995.00 and is available for rent in the continental U.S.A.
