Paddy has developed a safer, more efficient, automated and environmentally friendly way of cutting pipes.
“I have used my 40 years of experience in mechanical engineering, as well as cutting and drilling, to produce an internal pipe saw that provides tangible benefits for operators and project outcomes. The unique feature of my new internal pipe saw is its ability to cut pipes at any angle up to 45°. It is also highly versatile. By fitting different diamond blades it can cut concrete, steel, ductile iron and refractory lined pipes. The one machine can do it all. This is a real game changer”.
Other feature and benefits of Paddy’s internal pipe saw include:
Remotely operated reducing cutting injuries and toxic dust/mist exposure. Decreases associated long-term health issues and minimises liability for companies.
Cuts 900 mm up to 3.2 m internal diameter pipes.
Faster—cuts pipes in minutes.
Less labour intensive than hand saws. Cuts pipes in just one set-up with no need to turn or reposition the pipe.
Cuts clean and accurate first time producing less waste.
Able to cut sub marine pipes and hollow piles below the silt line.
Transportable modular system that can fit through a 600 mm manhole.
A plasma cutter can be fitted for cutting metal pipes.
Civil contractors, pipe layers, pipe manufacturers, piling demolition companies, concrete cutting companies, equipment rental companies could all benefit from the internal pipe saw.
Currently in working prototype stage, the multi-angle internal pipe saw is available for demonstration, use or hire.
