Choosing the Right Pipe-Cutting Machine for Your Business

A CNC pipe cutter

If your company is trying to choose the right type of pipe-cutting machine to meet your needs and you’re researching the possibilities, you might be a bit overwhelmed by the options. Tube- and pipe-cutting technological advancements have produced a wide array of options that can range from simple band saws to high-precision laser and plasma cutters. So how do you decide which direction to proceed?

Narrowing the Field

For our purposes, we’ll assume that you want a precision pipe cutter that will reduce the need for additional grinding and smoothing before welding can begin. This eliminates options like band saws and diamond wire cutters but still leaves a variety of choices, including:

Abrasive Water Jet Cutters

These cold-cutting machines are sometimes used for materials that could catch fire. They utilize a high-pressure jet of water and are often a good option for materials with significant thickness.

Gas Cutters

Oxy-fuel cutting is economical and can be used for materials with an extensive range of thicknesses. The process can also be completed mechanically, saving on labor.

Laser Cutters

Laser cutters are both fast and precise and are often used for materials with a comparatively smaller thickness.

Plasma Cutters

Plasma cutters utilize torches that can reach 40,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and the plasma stream can pass through almost all materials quickly and easily. Plasma cutting is one of the most popular methods, as it can be used for pipes with huge thicknesses.
