RC50 Cutoff Lathe (5 inch)

High-Speed Automatic Cutoff Lathe

The RC50 Cutoff Lathe has an intermediate capacity to cutoff a wide range of popular tube and pipe diameters. These machines can cut, face, chamfer and groove tubes quickly and efficiently, eliminating secondary operations and reducing labor.

30HP cutoff lathe headstock has ample power for fast cutting, and includes constant surface speed (CSS) control to maintain optimum production rates. The dual hydraulic chucks hold the tube on both sides of the cut and adjust automatically.


Our rotating head cut-off machines are the most advanced way to cut, face and chamfer tubes in one operation.

Many conventional tube cutting systems are not precise and usually leave sharp tube ends. Hautau cutoff lathes hold the tube stationary during the cut while the rotating head cutoff moves the tools in for cutting and chamfering. The tube is gripped by two tube chucks that position the tube for cutting the inside and outside chamfers. The tube lengths are precise and chamfer depths are programmable.
