W-244 Computerized controlled pipe cutter complete with 20 capacity bed. Longer length machines are available (See options). The machine is capable of cutting pipe from 1.9 OD to 24 OD, with a 10,000 lb. capacity. The W-244 comes standard with oxy fuel torch.
The 3rd and 4th axis head allows for the torch to rotate along the linear axis of the pipe and perpendicular to the linear axis to perform beveled holes and end cuts. The maximum rotation angle allows for the torch to rotate 50 degrees from vertical in both directions. The framework in which the torch is manipulated rests on the pipe to accommodate out of round pipe. It can also slide perpendicular to the linear axis to maintain the torch centerline relative to the pipe centerline. This eliminates off center holes if you have curved pipe. The torch mount will accommodate both plasma machine torches and oxy fuel machine torches.
The W-244 incorporates a roller lift deck that consists of powered conveyor rollers that allow the operator to convey the pipe into position. The pipe support frames are then raised to allow rotation of the pipe during the cutting process. After the pipe is processed, the rollers can be lowered and the pipe rolled out to the rear of the machine and placed onto a customer supplied staging table. The 20 infeed conveyor has power infeed rollers on 60 centers. Hydraulically operated drop arms are mounted on either the left or right side for side loading of the pipe. Master controls for material handling are mounted on the pipe rotator frame, with remote controls for the infeed mounted on the infeed conveyor.
