MICROFACER™ Tube Squaring Machine
The Model 300 MICROFACER Tube Squaring Tool is designed specifically to prepare tubes for autogenous welding.
The 300 MICROFACER will face (square) .125" to .75" (3.2mm to 19.1mm) outside diameter tubing with a wall thickness up to .125" (3.2mm).
The 300 MICROFACER accepts its own torque through the saddle clamping system that holds the tube securely while squaring. This standard saddle clamping system requires a straight length of tube .40" (10.2mm) long.
The "short perch" [length] saddle clamping system requires a straight length of tube .187" (4.75mm) long.
Speed control is provided by a variable speed cordless electric drive.
Feed is controlled by a cam actuated feed handle, located at a right angle to the cutter head.
Portable Tube Squaring Machine
• 1/8" to 1" Tube Squaring
• Ideal for hand-held in-place work
• Full contact collet eliminates tube deflection
• Patented cam feed for smoother operation
One of our first (and still most popular) tube squaring machines, the proven Model 301 has continuously provided the ultimate balance of precision and portability you've come to expect. Constant product improvements have kept the Model 301 the standard of comparison for all tools of this type. The Model 301 now incorporates graduated incremental feed control for squaring to precise lengths. It produces perfectly square, burr free ends on thin wall tubing in preparation for autogenous tube welding. Dependable performance and ease of use, combined with agility, light weight and rapid cycle times make this venerable tool the machine of choice for advanced tubing system fabrication and maintenance.
The compact Model 301 provides full support OD mounting, self centering collets, and will face (square) 1/8" to 1" OD tubing, with up to .125" (3.2mm) wall thickness. Precise end preps are easily accomplished on a wide variety of materials including steel, stainless steel, titanium, inconel, copper, aluminum, and plastic.
The cutting head accepts squaring bits or a combination of a squaring and a beveling bit. A variable speed electric drive and the ability to perform without damaging the inside of electro-polished tubes makes this tool the ultimate choice for cleanroom applications. Decreasing rate cam feed and feed graduations guarantee repeatable accuracy and consistent tube lengths.
Like many TRI TOOL machines, the Model 301 can be fitted with accessories such as the QC quick collet for higher production. The machines can be bench mounted with an optional baseplate and is available with either electric or pneumatic drive.

Model 301SP Tube and Microfitting Squaring Machine
The new Model 301 SP was designed specifically as a tube squarer for autogenous welding applications where microfitting, tube assemblies, or the gripping of short perch length tubing is required with maximum portability. Now, you can do straight tube and fittings with one machine. A design extension of our field proven Model 301, our new "quick collet" provides positive grip with as little as 3/16" straight length. The Model 301SP's cutting head accepts the full range of typical 301 style squaring bits. Cleanroom safe, portable or bench mounted, this machine's variable speed, high torque motor delivers an excellent finish on all types of materials and exotic alloys without damaging electropolished surfaces. The unit also features excellent visibility and a micrometer type feed indicator to ensure precise lengths.

Model 302 Tube Squaring Machine
With the Micrometer type feed indicator TRI TOOL set out to produce the perfect companion for automatic welding machinery. Our engineers asked high purity tube welding specialists what features they desired most in a squaring machine. They wanted to match size ranges and clearances with automatic weld heads. They wanted to do both tube and fittings with one machine. The customers spoke - our designers listened. The end result is the new Model 302. After extensive field testing and customer feedback, there's no question why this machine has been received with so much enthusiasm.
Combining the most desirable features for rapid precision autogenous tube welding, the 302's size configuration and capabilities have been optimized for reliability and ease of use. Feature packed, and built TRI TOOL tough, the Model 302 provides the constant precision and time savings our customers have learned they can depend on. Most importantly, you get the accurate, repeatable weld prep results your work demands. Cut it right the first time, every time with the innovative Model 302.
Whether bench mount or portable, no tools are required for operation and straight tube or micro fittings with OD's of 3/16" (4.76mm) to 2" (50.8mm) can be squared with ease. The versatile Model 302 has proven to be a perfect platform for special configuration machines. Due to its heavy duty construction, the 302 can be fitted with air clamping systems. The rugged cast body can be set up for left-hand or right-hand operation. Stainless steel clamping saddles are standard and provide durability and prevent carbon contamination for high purity tubing systems.
