BundleCut Evolution - Band saw for the dismantling of tube bundle and recovery of heat exchanger tubesheets

For when it becomes impossible t o partially retubing the tube bundle from a heat exchanger, MAUS ITALIA proposes the BundleCut band saws for the rapid, safe and ecological retrieval of the tubesheet.

BundleCut has become ”Evolution”. Years of product evolution have allowed a complete review of the design, enabling MAUS ITALIA ’s band saws to be even safer, better performing, more precise and state-of-the-art.

  • Used for over 20 years in workshops across the globe



Band saw BundleCut Evolution - Maus Italia





Exclusive features that allows rapid and clean separation of the tubesheet from the rest of the bundle






General features of NEW BundleCut Evolution system



Band saw BundleCut Evolution - Maus Italia

Precise and clean cut

The tube stubs, with no deformities or metallic burrs, are removed easily without damaging the tubesheet holes.

Band saw BundleCut Evolution - Maus Italia

High safety

The photoelectric barrier, if crossed, stops the blade automatically to ensure maximum safety in the cutting zone.

Ambiente sano

The elimination of harmful gases generated by traditional flame cutting and the removal of cutting dust with a grinder make the work environment healthy.

Smart cutting

The ability to continuously control the speed of descent of the cutting arc allows maximum speed without compromising the life of the blade.

Band saw BundleCut Evolution - Maus Italia

High productivity

Thanks to its practicality of use and the speed and precision of the cut, it is indispensable for heat exchanger maintenance workshops.

Blade tension control

Automatic control of blade tension and total machine stop in case the blade breaks or falls from the flywheels.






Operational simplicity

The controls on the console allow total control of the process simply, intuitively and at the correct safety distance. The ability to continuously control the speed of descent of the cutting arc allows maximum speed without compromising the life of the blade.


Digital components allows the control of:

  • Blade motor absorption display
  • Adjustment of blade rotation speed
  • Blade rotation speed display
  • Storage of set cutting speed
  • Display of arc descent speed
  • Display of distance travelled by arc
  • Display of distance remaining to end of cut
  • Display of time elapsed since beginning of cutting cycle
  • Display of time remaining until end of cutting cycle

Blade rigidity control

The blade guides, operator-adjustable using a hydraulic device, always remain alongside the tube bundle during cutting, ensuring the correct and continuing rigidity of the blade without requiring the machine to be stopped.


Compact transmission

The use of transmission chains on the movement of the lifting cyclinders reduces the overall dimensions of the BundleCut and the vertical stroke of the pistons, giving greater stability during a continuous and extremely clean cut


High rigidity in the sliding system

Thanks to pairs of profiled recirculating ball linear guides with high load capacity, the vertical movement of the arc is extremely fluid and rigid. The integrated greasing system extends times between maintenance.

Optionals - BundlePress

In place of anchoring straps with ratcheting tensioner, MAUS ITALIA proposes a device for the rapid locking of the tube plate. It comprises a vertical hydraulic press, controlled from the console, which, mounted on the base, enables the loading of the tube bundle and the unloading of the separated tube sheet to be accelerated.

Optionals - BundleSupport

Modular structure with a standard length of 4000 mm (13 ft) for supporting the tube bundle in front of the BundleCut with sliding wedges for adaptation to the diameter of the bundle to be cut. Customisable dimensions for shapes and lengths as needed.

Cutting procedure

  • Positioning - The heat exchanger is positioned in front of the BundleCut using a bridge crane or BundleTutor mobil conveyor on to the Bundle support and the support brackets are adapted to give the correct support.
  • Fixing - The fixing of the tube sheet is ensured by an anchoring strap with a ratchet tensioner or with a BundlePress hydraulic vice (optional) which speeds up the operation.
  • Cutting - Operator-controlled cutting with a circular blade allows precision cutting of tube bundle in a shor t time without polluting the work environment and without damaging the tube stubs being removed.
  • Separation - At the final cut, the tube bundle is moved while the tubesheet remains secured to the BundleCut. The neatly cut tube stubs left in the tube sheet are ready for extraction.
  • Stub extraction - Thanks to Grippul series tube extractors, the tube stubs left in the tubesheet are easily removed without damaging the holes.
