HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2013) - ESCO Tool has introduced a new electric O.D. clamping end prep tool for use on both thin-wall and heavy-wall tubes with a high percentage of chrome, especially in high purity applications.

The ESCO Electric C-MILLHOG® O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool has a massive clamp that grips tubing from the outside, evenly distributing the holding power, to assure a chatter-free, precision end prep on both thin-wall and heavy-wall tubes. Featuring a 950 Watt electric motor and requiring no cutting oils, this end prep tool is ideal for use on high-purity piping systems requiring 37-1/2° bevels, flat-facing, J-preps, or orbital welding.

Equipped with a ratchet feed which provides over 1" of stroke, the ESCO Electric C-MILLHOG® O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool operates on 110/230V and is suitable for prepping stainless steel and most hard to machine alloys. It has a narrow body that fits between 1-1/8" tubes, a working range of 1/2" to 2-1/2", and uses an easy to change block for changing tube sizes.

The ESCO Electric C-MILLHOG® O.D. Clamping End Prep Tool sells for $4,500.00 and is available for rent in the continental U.S.A. for $250.00 per week.
