Lincoln Electric and PypeServer have announced a new partnership under which all newly sold Vernon Tool® MPM® pipe profilers will come standard with PypeServer software.

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

Matt Krueger, General Manager of Lincoln Electric Cutting Systems, said, “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.”

“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.”

PypeServer software integrates with a wide range of 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, saving time and eliminating programming errors.

Manufactured in Reno, Nevada, Vernon Tool machines offer performance and service that delivers proven reliability, simple ease of use, and maximum production efficiency. The Vernon Tool MPM system incorporates an efficiency-focused flow-thru design and utilises a roller-bed over a chucking system to provide maximum efficiency and cut quality.

David Basiji, CEO of PypeServer, said, “The Vernon Tool MPM pipe cutting platform has a well-earned reputation as a reliable workhorse in pipe fabrication workflows.”

“With the addition of PypeServer’s advanced software features, Lincoln’s current and future Vernon products will be even more compelling pipe cutting solutions that pay for themselves quickly and save customers money for years to come.”
