S.F.E. Group was founded in 2019 after the merger of three world leading OEM’s in the field of pipe fabrication tooling and machinery: B&B Pipe and Industrial Tools LLC (USA), Mathey Dearman Inc. (USA) and TAG Pipe Equipment Specialists (UK).
Most recently the S.F.E Group has completed the acquisition of the AXXAIR Group (France).

Prototypes, design, industrial engineering, production, and special machines for GTAW and orbital welding, tube cutting, and pipe beveling. Ever since the foundation of our company, our engineering department has always been an essential component of AXXAIR.
Being a patented manufacturer of orbital tube and pipe processing machines, AXXAIR is constantly exploring new concepts in the field of orbital tube cutting, pipe beveling, and GTAW orbital welding.
AXXAIR supports its customers during every step of their cutting, squaring, beveling, and orbital welding process in over 60 countries worldwide. We are focused on providing high-quality service in this process while always putting our customers first. This starts by determining the welding configuration and analyzing the necessary preparation during the pre-sale phase. We then train the welders and operators on our specialty GTAW orbital welding equipment to ensure that our users can handle every type of application they might be confronted with, in the future.
AXXAIR USA supports our customers in North America from its Houston facility.
Feel free to contact AXXAIR USA for any sampling request or troubleshooting with AXXAIR products.
The satisfaction of the client after the purchase of orbital welding equipment is our main concern. It is important to us that the welders and welding machine operators have a perfect theoretical and practical knowledge of our machines.Read more
When faced with the need to choose a welding method, the question arises as to whether quality or efficiency should be given priority.Read more
Orbitally welding tubes to tube sheets can be done using either manual TIG or orbital TIG. Orbital welding saves time and produces high quality welds. The welds are documented to ensure optimal traceability of the welding process.Read more
We cannot stress enough that tube preparation is essential to obtain a quality weld. The same goes for tube-to-tube-sheet welding, so it is very important to not neglect this step.Read more
