Pipemaster 515 – Power Source for Orbital Weldheads

The latest generation of Pipemaster power sources is the result of a new direction in power source design. The Pipemaster 515 brings the benefits of digital technology to the orbital welding customer: unparalleled accuracy, repeatability, and reliability. The new model is half the size and weight of previous models. Digital technology forever eliminates the need for periodic weld head calibration.
