End Prep Machine Tool

E.H. Wachs introduced the EP424 Speed Prep Autofeed System, an inside diameter–mount end prep machine tool designed to bevel, compound bevel, J-prep, face, and counterbore pipe, fittings, and valves. With the Speed Prep, the user sets the bevel angle and land thickness that works best. The machine feeds simultaneously in the axial and radial planes and machines any bevel or compound bevel without templates, incline tool slides, or work stoppage. The EP 424 is powerful enough to form-tool from 4 inches to 16 inches (DN100-400) through Schedule 160, and single-point cut from 4 inches to 24 inches (DN100-600), up to a 6.5-inch (165 millimeters) wall thickness.
