For preparing plastic pipe samples for various tests by making a parallel cut and chamfering the finished edge. Typical tests requiring sample preparation are internal pressure, MCT, heat reversion, dimensions control and impact testing.

The solution offers a recipe system including features for pre-defined recipes, making it easy to get started no matter the material, length, thickness or diameter of the pipe.

The pipe saw is specially designed for laboratory preparation of pipe samples for dimensions from Ø 50 mm up to Ø 800 mm as standard.  The cutting of pipes is often made for internal pressure testing, impact tests, Glycerine, Methylene Chloride tests, dimension, dimension stability and other test purposes. In all the cases you need to cut and possibly chamfer the edge of the pipe.

The SIGMA saw has adjustable underdrive rollers enabling cut of any pipe surface and diameter including corrugated pipes with nu use of extra tools.
The tower rollers are gas spring balanced for cutting out-of-round pipes. Tower rollers can be fitted with rotating edges or rubbers to eliminate longitudinal slipping of special pipe surfaces/materials. A surface follower is build-in to ensure smooth and uniform cutting and chamfering. The saw is controlled from the intuitive remote control included.

SIGMA software for intuitive and safe control
The touch screen enables safe remote control of the saw. The SIGMA software included offers easy and intuitive operation. The software includes a recipe system enabling accuracy in every cut, quick repetition of cuts, out-of-round compensation etc. The start screen allows you to make a new or choose an existing recipe. The recipe function enables quick setup of recipes via the recipe wizard guiding the operator step by step.

Operation from a safe distance
The saw is controlled from the touch screen and two-hand switch placed on a floor stand allowing the operator to initiate a cut from a safe distance. The chip guard shield is available as optional add-on as well as the chip/swarf exhaust is prepared for the optional vacuum separator bag.

Any type of surface or diameter
The underdrive rollers are individually adjustable to accommodate special combinations of pipe surface and diameters. The tower rollers are gas spring balanced ensuring a clean cut even on out-of-round pipes or pipe ovality. Also suitable for corrugated piping – no additional tools needed.

Easy handling of large dimensions
The conveyor table enables easy handling and feeding of the pipe to the cutter according to selected recipe. After the pipe is placed on the adjustable sledges and support rollers, the pipe is conveniently moved up to saw blade.
