OD SCARFING TOOLS: MADE FOR THE JOB

Smooth and seamless surfacing of outer contours is critical to the success of any tube or pipe manufacturing process. Knight Carbide produces OD scarfing system components that deliver the superior reliability you need for the results you want. And new advancements in scarfing tools mean there are more options than ever when it comes to delivering flawless pipes and tubing. 

Our scarfing insert tools are made to an exacting standard out of the finest source materials to give you the best performance and longer tool life. Holders are ingeniously designed for interchangeability and rapid installation, keeping your downtime way down.

ID SCARFING TOOLS: NEW SOLUTIONS

Proper removal of a tube’s interior weld bead is technically more difficult to achieve. Working within the tight confines of a pipe interior presents a number of challenges that require specialized tools and skill to overcome. Knight Carbide is at the forefront of ID scarfing technology with an impressive range of mechanical and hydraulic tool systems designed to make the process easier and more effective than ever. 

Our ID scarfing system components include specialized mandrels, impeders and tow bar systems with knicking wheels installed for added stability and maneuverability.

You’ll find Knight Carbide is the most dependable source for all your scarfing needs, with a full range of consistently high-quality components and unlimited customization options.

Central to the Knight Carbide customer experience is our thoughtful client service team. They know what to ask to get it right the first time. With Knight Carbide, you’ll get what you need quickly, correctly and always at a fair price.

WHEEL SCARFING TOOLS: WE’VE GOT THEM

Scarfing also comes into play in the manufacture of steel wheels for vehicles. Rims are formed by bending a band of steel into a perfect ring and joining the two ends together with a weld. Removing the bead along the seam is critical to the viability of that wheel. Knight Carbide makes a range of inserts exclusively for the finishing of steel wheels and rims for automobiles, trucks and more.
