Carbon steel seamless steel pipe how to cut the best?

The main ways of seamless steel pipe cutting are cutting machine, cutting machine tool, flame cutting, sawing and so on.The characteristics of its pipe cutting equipment are described below.


(1) pipe cutting machine

Pipe cutting machine equipment is simple, less investment, more widely used, some also have chamfering function and automatic loading and unloading of materials and aggregates device.Pipe cutting machine is a commonly used equipment in seamless steel pipe finishing production line.


(2) pipe cutting saw

Can be divided into row saw, band saw and disc saw and other forms.Pipe row saw can cut off multiple steel pipes in a row at a time, with high production efficiency, but complex equipment structure and high investment;Band saws and disc saws are less productive and less costly.The circular saw is suitable for cutting the steel pipe with small outer diameter, while the band saw is used for cutting the steel pipe with large outer diameter.


(3) flame cutting

Flame cutting includes oxygen cutting, oxygen cutting and plasma cutting, etc.Plasma cutting, cutting speed faster.Due to the high temperature during flame cutting, there is a heat affected zone near the incision and the surface of the port is not smooth.


(4) the machine tool is cut off

This kind of cutting efficiency is very low, generally used for sampling and sample preparation.To sum up, the sawing machine for carbon steel seamless steel pipe has the best cutting speed and smooth pipe mouth.
