In practically any aspect of manufacturing, quality control is the key to continued success. In fact, just about every process handled by machines is likely to include markings, chamfers and burrs.
What’s the big deal with chamfers, burrs and other rough surfaces? For starters, workers on down the line of production can easily experience severe injury by handling sharp surfaces.
With a commitment to ensuring quality control in the pipe and tube cutting sector, Hautau Tube Cutoff Systems has been at the forefront of designing, inventing, patenting, and delivering new ways of problem-solving for manufacturers.

Why are smooth edges so important?
Burrs and chamfers can be difficult to spot – even by eyes trained to look for such imperfections.
Parts may be rejected outright for damages caused during the manufacturing process. If a small burr goes undetected, product quality can be compromised. For example, if a piston seal is damaged during assembly, the cylinder may develop a leak – making the part unacceptable to the customer.
As stated above, injuries to down-the-line workers are common when they grab a piece of tubing or piping that has burrs or chamfers.
How does Hautau help?
Ever since our founding in 1972, we’ve set the industry standard for how tube and pipe processing is carried out. During that time, we’ve designed and developed a complete line of tube cutoff lathes.
Our latest creation, Hautau’s Rotating-Head Tube Cutoff Lathe is a definite showstopper. By holding the tube in a stationary position during the cutting and chamfering stages, both ends of the piece are end-finished simultaneously.
