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, special machines: ever since the foundation of our company, our design office has always been an essential component of our developing department.
Being a patented manufacturer of orbital tube processing machines, AXXAIR is constantly exploring new concepts in the field of orbital cutting, beveling and welding.Find out More
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 a high quality service in this process while always putting our customers first. This starts by determining the welding parameters and analysing the necessary preparation during the pre-sale phase. We then train the welders and welding machine operators on the equipment to ensure that our users can handle every type of application they might be confronted with later on their own.Find out 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.Learn 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.Learn more
The range of tubular heat exchangers is very wide. It begins with small stainless steel heat exchangers of a few dozen tubes for the food industry and doesn't even end with large exchangers such as steam generators in the nuclear industry, which can count over 10.000...Learn more
When we speak of innovation in the field of orbital welding, it is important to remember that this is a niche market among all welding technologies and processes. When we talk about orbital TIG welding, we are talking about the automation of welding tubes and fittings.Learn more
