GF 4 (AVM/MVM)
This saw has been designed for precise cutting of tubes and pipes in just seconds. For more than 40 years construction companies rely on the standard set by Orbitalum in the indus-trial prefabrication of pipeline systems:
The GF series sets standards in orbital pipe processing! Numerous innovative functions combined with an ergonomic design give you significant advantages in the industrial prefabrication of piping systems.
- Rightangled, burr-free and cold machining process
- Deformation-free clamping system for thin- and thick-walled pipes
- Optimal preparation for the automated welding process
- Robust design with powerful drive
- Unique, automatically guided plunging process
- Multi-point clamping of the tube
- Fast adjustment of tube dimensions
- Cutting speed regulation
- Fast tool change
"Increased safety due to stationary tube - rotating tool"
The proven process of "planetary cutting" is an important feature that is characteristic of ORBITALUM pipe saws. The saw blade dips into the cut and is guided orbital around the tube. The advantage of this is that a large pipe diameter can be cut with a small saw blade without heating the pipe.
Innovative clamping principle through multi-point clamping of the tube: The deformation-free clamping makes it possible, depending on the material, to cut.
The deformation-free clamping makes it possible to cut tubes with a wall thickness of 2 to 10 mm (0.079" - 0.394") easily and quickly, depending on the material. All high-alloy, non-alloy and low-alloy steels, aluminum, copper, brass, annealed cast iron pipe, general structural steel, black and galvanized steel pipe and plastic can be processed. Optionally, in addition to pure manual operation, the user can choose between manual (MVM) and automatic (AVM) feed module. The latter optimizes the cutting result, increases the service life of the tool, and reduces the physical strain on the operator. The result: maximum safety and productivity.
- Optionally with AVM or MVM feed module for an automatic or mechanized cut-off cut, resulting in less physical strain for the operator.
- Optimized tool engagement at only one point of the tube at a time
- Optimized speed range (40-215 rpm), ideal for cutting high-performance materials (Hastelloy®, P91, etc.)
- Ergonomically optimized motor handle, thus safer operator position
- Cutting process in seconds
- Chamfering of tube ends parallel or separately to the cutting process
- Increased productivity
- Increased tool life
- More corrosion protection due to stainless steel jaw attachments (included)
- Cable incl. plug connection and quick release coupling for easy and convenient replacement of the flex swivel cable
Pipe cutting and beveling machine with automatic feed module AVM*: The intelligent control of the AVM continuously monitors the feed force depending on the required power. After completion of the cutting process, the AVM switches off automatically. Unintentional start-up is prevented by a restart interlock. Pipe Cutting and Beveling Machines with Manual Feed Module MVM*: The additional module on the machine facilitates the processing of pipes by means of a manually operated handwheel. This guides the turning body around the pipe in a user-friendly manner with little effort and constant feed.
