The Type FS slotting machine offers versatility to handle smooth or corrugated pipes of PVC, PE or PP.

Type FS slotting machine This Baruffaldi Primac-brand slotting machine can process smooth and corrugated pipes with diameters ranging from about 1.3 inches to over 3.9 feet. The brand includes equipment developed for the drainage pipe sector. Its portfolio includes downstream equipment and special machines for the production of plastic pipes.

What’s new? A version that offers the flexibility to work both inline and offline.

Benefits Versatility. By simply changing the cutting discs, operators can use the same machine to process PVC, PE and PP pipes. The machines can be equipped to meet customers’ needs, with one, two, three or four slotting heads and the automation level the process requires. The machine also offers extreme precision, and a special device detects the grooves in corrugated pipes to ensure slots are centered in the groove. The machines also can process pipes both with and without a socket.
