  • The Steelmax ABM1218 is a portable beveling machine capable of producing weld-ready bevels on flat plates of any shearable material up to 100,000 psi tensile strength. The ABM1218 FR uses a shearing process that is silent and fast. A powerful 3 horsepower electric motor drives the machine at speeds up to 8.5 feet per minute, making it the most powerful machine in its class. The machine can produce a 1/2” (12 mm) wide bevel in a single pass and can produce a maximum 3/4” (18 mm) wide bevel on plates or round tubes from 1/4” (6 mm) to 1-9/16” (40 mm) thick in multiple passes. Interchangeable bevel angle attachments are available for 22.5°, 25°, 30°, 35°, 37.5° and 45° bevels. The machine is easily inverted to bevel the underside of the plate – eliminating the need to flip the material – improving operational safety and increasing productivity. The ABM1218 FR produces no smoke or dust and almost no noise. Bevels are produced without thermal distortion and the material is weld-ready without additional grinding to remove dross, slag or heat affected zone (HAZ). FEATURES

    The Steelmax DBM 12 Portable Beveling Machine produces weld-ready bevels on flat plates of any shearable material up to 85,000 psi tensile strength. The DBM 12 uses a shearing process that is silent and fast. A powerful 3 phase electric motor drives the machine at speeds up to 6 feet per minute and cuts bevels up to ½” wide on material thickness from 1/8” to 1-3/8” (see technical specifications table for more details). Interchangeable bevel angle attachments produce 22.5, 30, 37.5, 45 and 50 degree bevels. This lightweight machine is easily inverted to bevel the underside of the plate for creation of X- and K-bevels without flipping the plate. The DBM 12 produces no smoke or dust and is extremely quiet. It will not distort the plate or create a heat affected zone. All electronic components are housed in a dust proof enclosure and the machine conforms to all appropriate CE specifications. FEATURES
    • 180° inversion enables double-sided bevels – no need to rotate or flip heavy material - dramatically reducing material handling costs and improving safety
    • Shearing cutting wheel is long lasting, quiet, and fast; beveling up to 6 feet per minute
    • Great machine for creating weld test coupons
    • Bevel pipe & round tubes 3-3/4” in diameter and larger
