Tubox is a concept for automated pipe cutting and is designed to optimize the workflow of professional plumbers by combining the previously disconnected measuring and cutting task into one seamless process.
The compound system consists of a measure tool, which can record, store and seamlessly transfer multiple measurements to a portable cutting unit that automatically processes the recorded measure data. The pipe cutter features a flexible cutting mechanism and is designed to machine pipes in the most common sizes and materials. A digital interface and integrated job storage make for minimized mistakes and simplification of repetitive tasks.
