MILLHOG® Cutter Blades for Pipe Milling Tools Bevel, Face and Bore Simultaneously

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) - ESCO Tool manufactures and supplies a full line of cutter blades and locking cutter heads for their welding end prep tools that can bevel, face and bore simultaneously, while improving weld surfaces. They come in a broad range of prep angles and produce a thick chip without cutting oils.

Esco MILLHOG® Cutter Blades feature a radical chip breaker that gets under the material and directs heat away from the pipe or tube to produce a thick chip without cutting oils and provide long blade life. Developed for their line MILLHOG® welding end prep tools, these blades mount into the EscoLock™ wedge-lock cutter head where they are rigidly held to bevel, face and bore simultaneously, including multiple angles for heavy-wall pipe.

Ideally suited for beveling stainless steels, P-91 and other hard materials, Esco MILLHOG® Cutter Blades are made from T-15 tool steel and are TiN coated or available with a hard lube coating. Blades are available with any angle of prep from 37-1/2° to 10° and compound bevels. Portable welding end prep tools are offered for tube and pipe from 1/2" I.D. to 36" O.D.

Esco MILLHOG® Cutter Blades are priced according to style and quantity and are included on all MILLHOG® Welding end prep tools.
