Split-Frame O.D. Mount Clamshell Machines

The H&S Tool OD Mount Clamshell machine design is a unique combination of accuracy, strength, and ease of handling. Our engineers have gathered information from field-operators around the world to determine the areas needing improvement over traditional designs. Our engineering minimizes weight while maximizing strength and rigidity with a quality aluminum body. The patent protected 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. Conventional motors are also used on the front drive adapters eliminating the need for secondary motors. There are three series of the OD Mount Clamshell Machine to meet the demands of your specific project.

  • The AFC series cuts and forms pipes from 1 – 48 inches (25.4 – 1219.2 mm).
  • Our heavy duty BFC series features a thicker ring for added rigidity in the larger diameter, heavier wall pipe applications. The BFC range is currently 36 – 86 inches OD (914.4 – 2184.4 mm).
  • Our MFC small diameter series fits in tight places and has a range from .625 – 2.625 inches (15.9 – 66.7 mm).
