The Wachs Trav-L-Cutter is a portable milling machine capable of cold cutting and beveling simultaneously on all machinable pipe materials, pipe schedules and pipe sizes from 6” up to 72” O.D. Secured by its own tensioning chain, the Trav-L-Cutter drives itself around the pipe as it machines.It will accommodate sizes from 6"-72" O.D. (DN150–1800) with the addition of additional chain sections. Machining of larger pipe sizes, vessels and other structures are possible.
