Project managers, welding contractors, and field machinists will find that they will make their pipe welding more efficient by using weld prep tools. Quality, precision weld preps made with E.H. Wachs equipment ensures users that the welding process will consistently pass inspections time and time again, while avoiding any reprocessing of the weld prep. Wachs machine tools are built to cut, bevel, j-prep, counter bore, flange face and single point pipes from 2” to 72" O.D. and utilize a cold cutting process that eliminates the hazards related to torch cutting and grinding. This is especially important wherever volatile hydrocarbons are present.

Available online at, Wachs offers online time calculators and other tools to help prepare cost estimates when bidding on pipe maintenance or pipe repair projects. Utilizing these tools, managers, contractors and machinists can better estimate labor time with the Pipe Cutting and Weld Prep Time Calculators.
