lincoln pypeserver sept2020Click image to enlargeLincoln Electric and PypeServer Inc. have announced a partnership under which all newly-sold MPM pipe profilers from Lincoln’s Vernon Tool division will come standard with PypeServer software.

Lincoln Electric will also support the retrofit of existing Vernon machines with PypeServer for MPM customers who wish to update their equipment with CAD import, part nesting, and advanced cutting capabilities.

PypeServer software integrates with CAD and Building Information Model (BIM) design tools so spools and parts can be sent directly to Vernon machines and cut without the need for machine programming.

PypeServer's part nesting allows machines to cut multiple parts from a pipe in a single operation to increase workflow efficiency.

It incorporates sophisticated algorithms that account for plasma beam kerf and shape, gas swirl, pipe thickness, and root gap to maximize cut quality and reduce the need for time-consuming grinding and filling before welding.

Manufactured in Reno, Nev., the Vernon Tool MPM system incorporates an efficiency-focused flow-thru design using a roller-bed over a chucking system to provide maximum efficiency and cut quality.

“The combination of Vernon Tool MPM hardware, Lincoln Electric cutting tools, and the innovative workflow and cutting algorithms of PypeServer software presents the most compelling value for customers in the market,” said Matt Krueger, general manager of Lincoln Electric Cutting Systems. “Together, we have found a solution to improve our customers’ ability to produce pipe products faster, with higher quality, and deliver maximum return on investment.”
