Making a beveled edge on metal is fast and easy
Edge preparation for welding with the use of bevel heads
Welding is and remains a professional’s job. Not everybody can create a nice, good and strong weld just like that. In order to deliver the best result, it is important to have the best working conditions and the best tools.
Weld preparation and beveling metal is physically demanding and time-consuming work, and the quality of the end result depends on the time and person. It is a necessary evil for a good weld, but who in their right mind wants to be working with a cutting torch, carbide inserts, a grinding disc or flap disc?
It should be possible to do this differently. That is why Beveltools has developed two revolutionary concepts, Bevel Mate® and Bevel Mite®, that make beveling considerably faster, easier and more accurate. Apart from a perfect end result, the concepts also provide better working conditions.
This is how easy it is to make a beveled edge on metal
The benefits of working with Beveltools 3.0
Consistent and accurate angle
Chamfering metal with Beveltools bevel heads provides a consistent and accurate angle on sheet material or the outside/inner diameter of pipes. Making a bevel with grinding discs takes too much time and the results are not always as perfect as you would like. The bevel cutters from Beveltools make a smooth beveled edge in one pass. Optimal weld preperation results in a stronger weld.
No finishing and no discoloration
Use of a cutting torch often requires finishing before one can proceed with the welding and the heat causes discoloration of the material. Beveltools guarantees reduced-sparking machining, with hardly any heat being added to the material. With these bevel heads there’s no need for finishing.
Superior quality without contamination
In contrast to the current beveling methods (with a cutting torch, flap disc or grinding disc), working with Beveltools does not add any contamination to the metal. A better welded joint is created through reduced encapsulation in the weld, as the machines do not contaminate the metal.
Lightweight beveling machines
The portable beveling machines are compact and light. They can be brought to the metal without much physical effort and can be used in areas with limited space. The machine is set within a few seconds and the bevel heads are replaced within 45 seconds. A perfect bevel is achieved faster; on average 4 feet (1 metre) of 8-mm-deep metal can be beveled within 80 seconds.
Better working conditions
The beveling machines are lightweight and create the required bevel almost without vibrations. As the bevel heads cut through the metal, the chips are large and heavy, and immediately drop to the ground. No hazardous dust particles and/or combustion gases are released.

The assortment bevel heads for metal
Beveltools has solid carbide cutters for a wide range of metals. Every type of Beveltools bevel heads has its own characteristics, making them more or less suitable for certain types of metal. Simply change the bevel head to create a different angle or radius, or to bevel a different type of metal. Changing the bevel head only takes a matter of seconds.
For the best end result, it is highly important to choose the right bevel head that is the most suitable for the job at hand. The diagram is a guide for making the right choice.
