Split Frame Clamshells

Clamshells are portable machines for the in situ cutting, severing  and beveling of  pipe and tube. They are well suited to heavy wall tube and their spark free operation offers major safety benefits over flame cutting.

Our new design minimizes weight while maximizing strength and rigidity with a quality aluminum body. The pocket-style motor mount eliminates motor twisting and ring gear damage. The mount also allows you to switch between the pneumatic, electric and hydraulic motors without the need for conversion pieces.
