Orbitalum Tools has introduced the RPG 2.5 and RPG 2.5 Cordless tube squaring machines for pipes and microfittings up to 2.5 in. OD.
The machines can face pipes and microfittings from unalloyed, low-alloy, and high-alloy steels with an OD range between 0.250 and 2.5 in. and a maximum pipe thickness of 0.118 in.
An adapter clamping shell included with the machines allows the operator to use clamping shells from the RPG 1.5 with the 2.5 models. Stainless steel clamping shells are offered in a variety of diameters to ensure mounting of microfittings and quick change of clamping shells without tools.
With the patented quick tool change (QTC®) system, the user can change tools quickly. The integrated, multifunctional tool has two cutting edges and a high-performance surface coating, which helps prevents wear and tear.
