On time, Below Budget: Onsite Clamshell Machining at Gladstone Alumina Refinery

STAND BACK and admire the beautiful Mactech Portable Clamshell Lathe – your best option for precision onsite convenience.

The great thing about this machine is you take the lathe to the client’s work place and perform the procedure completely onsite.

We recently completed this process at an alumina refinery in Gladstone, Queensland – on time, and under budget, resulting in a very happy customer.

Mactech Australia’s Clamshell Lathes offer portable pipe cutting to the oil and gas, power generation, shipbuilding and other industries that provide spark free, precision cuts and weld preps.

Unlike other competitive cold cutters our lathes have more bearings making it the most versatile machine in the industry to cut and bevel pipe, re-machine flanges, machine shafts and more.

Known as clamshell lathes, split frame cutters, or cold cutting machines in the industry, our portable pipe cutting machines are for in-situ precision cutting and bevelling of all pipe sizes, schedules and materials.

Our Mactech range covers a wide range of pipe sizes from 2″ to 60″ OD and are designed so that minimal radial and axial clearance are required for easy installation on in-line closed loop pipe.
