Bevelling plays a crucial role in the welding process, especially when it comes to pipes and plates. It serves as a preparatory step, ensuring that the edges are perfectly suited for seamless welding. In certain cases, when dealing with thicker steel plates, achieving the desired weld strength requires prior preparation - that's where bevelling comes into play. For plate with a thickness exceeding 4 mm, beveling becomes an essential step before welding. By creating precise bevels, we ensure optimal weld quality, enhancing the structural integrity of your projects. Trust our expertise in bevelling to unlock seamless welding and superior results.

PLATE bevelling

Plate bevelling incorporates various technologies, including innovative methods like slow-speed rotary shearing or milling. These advanced techniques enable precise and efficient edge shaping, resulting in the highest quality bevels that perfectly meet the specific requirements of your projects.


Just like with sheet metal, bevelling machines are an essential part of the preparation process before welding for pipes with thicker wall thickness (above 3 mm). Bevelling the outer edge of the pipes is necessary to ensure a perfect connection when two pipes are welded together. The weld on the bevelled end of the pipe is highly precise, resulting in a strong and durable joint capable of withstanding the internal pressures within the pipeline. These types of joints even undergo rigorous X-ray inspection to ensure the weld's integrity. This level of precision is crucial, especially in industries such as energy, chemical plants, refineries, gas pipelines, and oil pipelines, where pipes are exposed to extreme internal pressures or carry highly flammable substances. By employing bevelling techniques, we ensure the utmost quality and safety in these critical applications.
