Pipe Facing Machine (PFM)

Serimax's range of Pipe-facing machines are mobilised on all of our automatic welding projects to provide specific high-quality, narrow-gap bevels benefiting the quality and productivity of your pipeline projects.

Serimax has a range of pipe facing machines driven by hydraulic power units. These are designed to cut precision bevels on pipe ends from 6" up to 64", to prepare the pipe joint for automatic, manual and specialised welding systems.

Each Serimax PFM has a wide diameter range enabling the same machine to be used on different pipe sizes and wall thicknesses.

PFMs are equipped with adaptable cutting heads. They are capable of cutting new or modifying existing bevels to increase efficiency when welding different wall thicknesses and/or pipe diameters. They can be used offshore and onshore.

Technical Datasheet 

HPU (Hydraulic Power Units)

These in-house developed beveling systems are powered by Hydraulic Power Units (HPUs) supplied by Serimax.

Our hydraulic power units are designed to supply hydraulic power to pipe pacing machines.

Serimax’s electric HPUs, ranging from 30kW to 50kW, are equipped with two independent hydraulic pumps. Our diesel HPUs are equipped with one dual pump powered by either a 67HP or a 74HP four-cylinder diesel engine motor.

The flow on the main pump can be set to adjust cutting-head speed rotation. The slave pump is used for the clamping system and the feed.
