Pipe cutting is the process of separating or rather chipping pipes. The goal is to get a perfect 90° cut end. This cut end is important for further pipe end preparation. For example pipe beveling.

How to cut a pipe?
There are several possibilities to cut a pipe. With a handheld tube cutter for small and thin tubes, a bow saw for pipes, an angle grinder or with a pipe cutting machine. The easiest and safest way to cut a pipe is the usage of an electrical pipe cutting machine. The machine will be fast and precise clamped on the pipe in which it aligns itself.
As soon as the cutting blade starts to cut, the pipe is turned until the cutting process is done.

How does a pipe cutter work?
Two clamping jaws fix the pipe and align it parallel. The saw blade is immersed in the pipe and locks in at the lowest point. Through the rotation of the pipe, a cut all around the pipe is done.
