H&S Tool has introduced the BFC-66 field machining tool for pipes up to 67.5 in. OD. The 0.75-in. locator pad adjustment offers increased working range coverage per pad extension to help minimize the number of extensions required to machine the minimum diameter of 52 in.
The tool has a drive motor pocket mount that secures the motor from torquing and protects the drive gears. Each motor drive has a patented front bearing that provides stability to maintain optimum drive gear contact. The patented tripper mechanism helps increase operator safety, and the heavy-duty tripper star wheel delivers positive contact and long life, according to the company.
