Beveling machines and weld shavers prepare material edges for welding or clean up joints after welding. They produce smoother, more uniform results than angle grinders, and their cutting inserts or bits generate chips as waste instead of hazardous grinder dust. Handheld bevelers form angled edges on pipe or plate workpieces that require detailed beveling or can't be worked on a benchtop or stationary beveler. Stationary and portable beveling machines bevel plate or pipe with less effort and in less time than handheld bevelers. Weld shavers trim welding beads to set welds flush with the surface without damaging surrounding material.
