Victaulic, a manufacturer of mechanical pipe-joining systems, introduced the VE206 portable roll-grooving tool. The tool provides a versatile, durable pipe-grooving solution to make pipe preparation more efficient in the field.

The VE206 portable roll groover improves the efficiency of on-site roll-grooving operations, Victaulic said. Tool components are lightweight for easy transport and assembly, reducing site-to-site set-up and take-down time. An ergonomically designed tool head featuring two handles enables quick, easy on-off mounting.

The VE206 roll groover can be configured in multiple ways to meet crew and job-site demands. The versatile design enables the tool head to be securely mounted to any tripod stand with a Ridgid 300 bolt pattern or the flatbed of a work truck. The hydraulic hand pump can be mounted on either side of the tool for right- or left-hand operation. The roll groover is compatible with multiple power drive units, including the Victaulic Style VPD752, Ridgid 300 and 700, and Rems Amigo 2.

Built with rugged, durable components, the roll groover is designed to withstand heavy use in the field, the manufacturer said.

The VE206 roll grooves 1¼- to 6-inch (32- to 150-millimeter) carbon steel and stainless steel pipe up to schedule 40. Optional roll sets are available to groove light-wall stainless steel and copper. Tool components include a power drive unit, hydraulic hand pump, tripod stand and a foot pedal power switch.
