Weld Preps, Chamfers & Bevels

Our bevelling service is suitable for use across all of our profiling methods. We can provide weld preps, bevels and chamfers in angles up to 60 degrees on plates between 6mm to 60mm (greater thicknesses available on request).
Weld preparation of metal parts carried out during the profiling process has helped numerous customers save time and money. Combining the cutting and bevelling processes from a single source, reduces the number of steps within the supply chain, improving efficiency.

As our bevelling/chamfering process is run as a separate operation to our 4 main profiling services, it is suitable to be used on all materials regardless of the profiling method – Meaning we can create weld preps on laser, waterjet, flame and plasma cut parts.

Able to produce top face and bottom face (or a combination of both) edge preps between 15o – 60o. Preps are commonly requested on metals such as stainless steel, mild steel and aluminium, but we can also preform bevels on tough metals such as wear plate, duplex, super duplex and inconel.

Our weld preparations are suitable for single and doubled sided, partial and full penetration butt welds.

Single Weld Prep

Also known as a bevel cut, the desired angle of the edge prep goes completely through the thickness of the plate.

Weld Prep

With Root Face

Sometimes known as a chamfer, the contour of the edge prep only penetrates a proportion of the material thickness, leaving a partial flat edge.

Compound Weld Prep

Two different angle bevels carried out on a single face.

Double Weld Prep

With Root Face

A double weld prep features a bevel/chamfer on both the top face and bottom face of the plate.

Double Weld Prep

Alternative Angles

Same concept as a normal double weld prep, except the angles on top and bottom face are different. E.g. 20o on top and 45o on bottom.

J Weld Prep

Unlike straight chamfers, a J prep works off a set radius in order to create a smooth, curved edge.

  • We’ve been in the profiling business for over 35 years and today we’re considered one of the largest and most diverse specialist cutting companies in the UK. We continue to invest in the latest cutting and automation technology to provide our customers with the highest quality cut parts in the shortest possible lead time.Contact us with your requirements today and join over 5000 customers who choose us for their profiling needs.

  • If you have drawings to send, we’re happy to accept DXF, DWG or dimensioned PDF files. By sending the above file types, we can easily process your order with our quoting system which vastly improves the speed at which we can get you a price.

  • For simple profiles such as squares, rectangles and cirlces with simple holes or slots we can work without a drawing.Alternatively, we also have an in-house CAD drawing team who can draw up your profile for you.As well as this, we also have a Laser QC scanner which enables us to scan and convert a physical object to a readable CAD file.
