EP 424 End Prep Bevelers
The Wachs EP 424 Beveler with the new Speed Prep auto feed system is a precision I.D. mount end prep machine tool designed to bevel, compound bevel, J prep, face and counterbore pipe, fittings and valves. Utilizing our revolutionary Speed Prep mechanism that feeds simultaneously in the axial and radial planes, the Speed Prep EP 424 is able to machine any bevel or compound bevel without templates, incline tool slides or work stoppages.
With the Speed Prep system, it's now possible to set the bevel angle and land that works best for your application, all without work stoppages or additional stoppages. Powerful enough to form tool from 4" to 16" (DN100-400) through Schedule 160, it will single point from 4" to 24" (DN100-600) up to a 6.5" (165mm) wall thickness. Features:

Genuine Wachs Tooling
A key contributor to the superior performance of E.H. Wachs cutting and beveling machines is the quality of our tooling. Precisely engineered and fabricated from super high-strength materials, Genuine Wachs Tooling is designed for today's higher speeds, heavier feed rates, and exotic materials. The result is precise cuts, longer tool life and maximum productivity. Our tooling offers better value than imitation or universal tooling, as its made specifically for our machines to fit perfectly, hold an edge longer and be resharpened multiple times.
At Wachs we understand all aspects of portable machining, and realize tooling is a critical component in the process. We have decades of experience manufacturing the best performing, longest lasting tooling for our machines, with products for most applications and customized tooling manufactured to order. To maintain the peak performance of your E.H. Wachs equipment, be sure to specify Genuine Wachs Tooling.
