Bevelers prepare a plate's edge or a pipe's end for welding by creating a sloped edge along the edge of the plate or the end of the pipe.
Most plates over 3/16" thick and most pipes over 1/8" wall thickness require beveling prior to welding.
Bevelers vary in type, capacity, and method of beveling.
Bevelers can be either pneumatic or electrically powered.
Bevelers are measured by the depth of the bevel.
Heck Industries was established in 1966 as a manufacturer of cost-saving metalworking machinery. Today they are one of the leaders in plate beveling machines – everything ranging from handheld bevelers to power feed bevelers.
