Laser Bevel Measurement Tool

The Laser Bevel Measurement Tool is designed to scan the pipe end. This produces a 360 degree laser measurement profile of the bevel.

Key features

  • Total 360 degree coverage of the bevel

  • Go/ no-go in 25 seconds

  • Allows production control of bevel quality

  • Pipe sizes from 6” to 32”

  • Wall thickness up to 45 mm

  • Measures most common bevel types

Bevel measurement system

The Laser Bevel Measurement Tool eliminates doubt about bevel compliance and provides the user with an unrivalled insight into critical pipe bevel geometry. This ground-breaking new technology will allow improved understanding of the pipe bevel shape, which means welding can be a more efficient, streamlined process.

Pipe bevel geometry

Pipe bevel geometry is of key importance for pipeline engineers, welders and quality control inspectors. Accurate bevel geometry leads to more efficient pipe fit-up, improved welding and superior pipeline integrity. Prior to welding, verifying the shape of a bevel is a crucial consideration for pipeline construction.

  • Plain bevel

  • J-prep bevel

  • J-prep with back bevel

  • Compound bevel

  • Compound J-prep with back bevel

Improved process efficiency

The system can be utilised integrated in-line with your facility, allowing for uninterrupted production and improved efficiency.

The tool can be deployed immediately after bevelling, prior to pipes being moved into production and can perform a complete scan of a pipe end in as little as 25 seconds. This produces a 360 degree measurement profile of the bevel.

User-friendly software

Once the bevel has been measured, the user receives a simple green or red go/no-go indication via Bevel Pro software, with the option to investigate bevel parameters in greater detail. The amber indication gives the user an early warning that bevel tolerances are being approached.
